Defective Tire Attorneys in Rockville
Work with Leaders in Product Liability Claims
One small defect with a car’s tire can spell disaster for drivers, passengers, and anyone else in or near the roadway. Defective tires contribute and cause accidents across the country, leading to devastating and sometimes even fatal injuries.
A defective tire that blows out while the vehicle is in motion can prevent the driver from maintaining control, causing them to veer off the road or into oncoming traffic. Because many tire defect accidents occur at high rates of speed, the injuries that victims sustain can be particularly catastrophic.
If a defective tire caused an accident that left you or your loved one injured, do not face the aftermath alone. Instead, consult with the Rockville defective tire attorneys at Ashcraft & Gerel. We have decades of experience representing the injured victims of accidents resulting from carmaker negligence.

Defective Tires Can Wreak Havoc
Car tires have an important job and must be built flawlessly to ensure the vehicle’s safety. Decades of research and engineering have gone into tire design and construction, yet some defects still arise, putting thousands of lives at risk.
Examples of common tire defects include:
- Poor construction
- Design defects
- Adhesion failures
- Tread separation
Over the last several years, we have seen millions of tire recalls. Some of the most prominent tire brands – including Goodyear, Michelin, Firestone, and Bridgestone – have recalled their products. In 2000, for example, Firestone recalled 14.4 million tires due to a tread issue on certain models. The tread on these tires was susceptible to peeling, which caused significant failure rates.
