Injured Due to a Recalled Yokohama Tire? Talk to an Attorney.

Yokohama Tire Recalls

The Yokohama Rubber Company opened in 1917 in Tokyo. As the company continued to grow and expand to take advantage of a burgeoning market for its products, it set up a U.S. base in California in 1969. Yokohama is a giant in the tire industry.

Along with an ever-expanding company and unprecedented growth over the past decades, Yokohama garnered a good reputation for making quality tires and reliable products. They have designed, produced and marketed many unique and reliable tires, but have also been held accountable for making numerous defective tires.

Yokohama Tires — A Snapshot of Defective Tire Recalls

  • 2005 — recall issued for four different Yokohama tires due to reduction in tire durability. This recall affected General, Continental and Toyo tires.
  • 2010 — recall for missing Tire Identification Number (TIN). TINs are mandatory to identify any safety issue that may arise.
  • 2012 — recall issued for tires made in 2009 due to rapid loss of air while being driven.
  • 2013 — recalled Yokohama tires with missing load markings and missing inflation markings.

It does not matter if tires that may have caused an accident were recalled or not, a competent product liability attorney is able to provide you with the information you need to make an informed decision about your legal options and filing a lawsuit.

What is Product Liability Law?

When dealing with a defective product, the area of law under which a claim is filed is referred to as product liability law. It is the niche of law in which retailers, manufacturers, suppliers, distributors and others who design, create and market a product, are held accountable for injuries to those harmed by using the product. The term product refers to tangible personal property.

Product liability claims in the United States are typically associated with breach of warranty, negligence, strict liability and a wealth of other consumer protection claims. The vast majority of product liability laws are set at the state level and no two states have the same laws. Depending on the state you live in, there may be different elements to prove to win a successful claim.

There are three types of liability claims under the umbrellas of product liability law: manufacturing defect, design defect and a failure to warn or marketing defect.

A manufacturing defect is one that happens during the manufacturing process and may involve shoddy workmanship and/or sub-standard materials. Design defects happen in the initial creation of the product when the design itself is inherently useless or dangerous, no matter how well it was made. Marketing defects, or failure-to-warn defects are those found in products that, even though well made, have inherent and not obvious dangers that could be mitigated by warning the user.
