Injured Due to a Recalled Hankook Tire? Talk to a Lawyer.

Hankook Tire Recalls

Tire recalls are necessary when a defect has been identified or when reports of problems with tires start coming in. While there have been numerous tire recalls over the years, a recall does not get all defective tires out of service and preventable accidents still happen and cause victims needless pain from injuries sustained. Defective tires may also cause a driver to lose their life.

Defective tire lawsuits are usually referred to as product liability lawsuits, as the manufacturer is duty bound by law to provide safe products. Accordingly, if you have been injured in an accident that was caused by a defective Hankook tire, whether it was part of a recall notice or not, you may be eligible to seek compensation for damages.

Do not wait to seek legal counsel. File a claim as soon as possible or you may run the risk of losing your right to sue if you do not file in compliance with the statute of limitations.

Liability in Accidents Involving a Defective Hankook Tire 

Have you been in an accident where a defective Hankook tire was involved? If so, it does not matter whether or not it was subject to recall. According to the doctrine of product liability law, the maker of a product, including tires, has the responsibility to create products free of hazards. This means if there is a design defect or manufacturing mistake and a customer is harmed by a defective tire, the manufacturer may be held liable for injuries and damages sustained in an accident.

Hankook has issued recalls for tread separation and/or premature sidewall wear. These defects may be the result of a manufacturing mistake or design defect, including but not limited to: improper cooking temperatures during the manufacturing process or using contaminated or old materials or adhesives.
