Defective Tire Attorneys in Washington, D.C.
Confidently Pursuing Justice for Injured Victims of Tire Defects
A defective tire can spell disaster for drivers and passengers. Roughly 11,000 tire-related car crashes occur in the U.S. annually with approximately 200 fatalities stemming from these accidents.
A blown tire can be particularly hazardous in an accident because pieces of the tire can get stuck on the wheel, making it virtually impossible for the driver to properly control the vehicle. Plus, tire blowouts are more likely to occur at high speeds, causing particularly catastrophic – or even deadly – injuries.
If you suffered an injury because of a defective tire, Ashcraft & Gerel wants to help you restore justice and hold the tire manufacturing company accountable. By filing a lawsuit, you may be able to recover compensation for your medical bills, lost wages, pain, and other damages.Discuss your rights and options with our defective tire attorneys in Washington, D.C. today.
The Deadly Consequences of a Defective Tire
Over the years, millions of tires have been recalled due to deadly problems both in design and manufacturing. Even the most prominent brands, such as Goodyear, Firestone, Michelin, and Bridgestone, have had to recall tires.
Many people sustain injuries caused by tire defects including:
- Poor construction
- Design flaws
- Tire shredding and de-treading
- Adhesion failures
- Tread separation
Back in 2000, for example, Firestone was forced to recall 14.4 million of its tires due to a tread defect. The tread was prone to peeling, which resulted in high failure rates and catastrophic injuries.
