The attorneys at Triscaro & Associates handle claims involving tire defects throughout Ohio and the United States. Typically, there are two types of tire defect cases, which include:
- Tire Blowouts
- Tread Separations
The most important initial step to take if you suspect that you may have a tire defect claim is to preserve the tire and vehicle involved. If the subject tire is not preserved we will unlikely be able to prosecute your claim. Necessary expert testing has to be performed on the subject tire to discover whether it is in fact defective.
Many tire blowouts and tread separations result in catastrophic injury or death, particularly in SUV's prone to rollovers. Most tire defect cases are the result of tread separation caused by glue adhesion failure. Adhesion failure is usually the result of the usage of old glue, poor bonding materials and impurities being mixed with bonding agents.
Tire manufacturers have known about these problems for years, but have failed to take action. Moreover, certain tire manufacturers have been sanctioned for concealing incriminating information related to their tires.
