Sources of Tire Defects

Most people know that tire upkeep is essential to ensure not only the safety of their own vehicle, but also the safety of other drivers on the road. A vehicle’s tires are all that connect a car with the road pavement, so they are a crucial part of vehicle safety. Unfortunately, despite the diligent maintenance provided by many motorists, such as having tires rotated and replaced as necessary, manufacturing errors can cause dangerous motor vehicle accidents that drivers are powerless to prevent. Many manufacturers have been forced to recall their tires due to defects.

Sadly, these recalls only tend to be issued when it is too late to prevent tragedy for one or more families. If you or someone you love has been injured in a car accident caused by tire defects, contact a Cincinnati personal injury lawyer at Stepleton & Dugan, LLC, at 513-321-7733.

What Causes Tire Defects?

Tires are mass produced, and while this is efficient and allows for tire manufacturers to profit handsomely, it also increases the likelihood that significant hazards might be overlooked. The following are some of the potential sources of tire defects:

  • Defective designs
  • Poor quality rubber and other materials
  • Manufacturing errors
  • The use of an inadequate adhesive

The negligence of a tire manufacturer can lead to serious car accidents, and often drivers have little prior warning that their tires are flawed. Often, they have no opportunity to avoid a collision, through no fault of their own.
