Driving involves risks, but when our cars have defective tires, the risk of crashes increases. Defective tires can lead to blowouts or other dangerous conditions that compromise the safety of everyone on the road. Whether a tire was stored too long or was manufactured improperly, if you suffered injuries because of unsafe road tires, you could be entitled to compensation.
While the damage caused by tire blowouts is undisputed, proving that a defect caused the blowout can be difficult. But at Elk & Elk Co., Ltd., our experienced attorneys work closely with other injury professionals to investigate how the accident happened and to prove your case.
If dangerous tires caused your injuries, our product defect lawyers can help. Call 1-800-ELK-OHIO or contact us online to schedule your free consultation.
Seeking the truth through a prompt investigation
After a tire blowout, it is critical to quickly begin investigating why the accident occurred. As time goes by, witnesses’ memories fade and physical evidence could be cleared and discarded.
A tire blowout could be caused by dangerous road conditions, but it could also be because the tire itself was unsafe. Our investigators have the knowledge and experience to determine precisely what happened and why.
Manufacturer defects, a tire’s age and design defects could all cause types of tire defects, including:
- Tread separation
- Belt failure
- Rim explosions
Due to the urgency involved in so many injury claims, Elk & Elk attorneys are available 24/7/365 to help you when you need it most. Get the answers you need after an accident from Elk & Elk.
