When you get behind the wheel or ride as a passenger in a car, you are essentially putting your trust in the tire manufacturer. You are trusting that the manufacturer produced quality tires that are free from defects. You rightfully assume that the appropriate chemicals and materials were used to create the tires. Unfortunately, tire manufacturers sometimes cut corners or place defective tires in the marketplace. If you were injured in a car accident resulting from tire failure, you may be able to hold the tire manufacturer responsible. Keep in mind that these cases are complex and require the expertise of a lawyer who is experienced in defective tire cases.
