Dunlop Tire Recalls
Dunlop Tire had very humble beginnings in 1888. A dedicated dad, John Boyd Dunlop developed a way to help his son, sick with a bad cold, to ride his tricycle. Dunlop fitted the bike with tires created from canvas bonded with liquid rubber. The subsequent patent was a legend in the making, and by 1902 Dunlop won the famous Paris-Vienna race. Over the years, Dunlop built an enviable reputation for quality tires, an innovative approach to safety and a unique take on creating tires to handle just about any kind of conditions a driver may face. Although Dunlop has created many tires known for their quality over the years, the company has also built many tires that have been recalled due to their defects.

Some Notable Dunlop Tire Lawsuits
According to court records the tire did not have a nylon cap and the “adhesive properties bonding the components of the tire might prematurely fail prior to an outward visible defect that the owner could observe,” and that the tire makers “failed to use materials in the construction of the subject tire that would maintain their adhesive qualities.”

Have you been involved in an accident that was caused by a defective Dunlop tire? If so, you may be eligible to receive compensation for your injuries.
A manufacturer in the State of Florida must, by law, make a product that is reasonably hazard-free. If an accident was caused by a defective product, then the maker of that product may be held responsible for damages and injuries to a plaintiff that used their product.
