Car Accident Tire Blowouts

Unfortunately, recalls for tires are actually quite common. Many major tire manufacturers such as Uniroyal, Firestone, Cooper, Dunlap (and the list goes on) have issued a tire recall at one point. Many times, however, these tire recalls occur much too late – after someone has already been injured or killed. It sometimes takes a tragedy to result from a tire blowout for manufacturers to realize that there is a defect in their tires. An attorney in Michigan can help if you were hurt in an accident due to a defect that caused a tire blowout.

The following can result from a defective tire, causing tire blowouts and accidents:

  • Adhesion failures
  • Metal fatigue
  • Tread separation
  • Defective ball joints
  • Tire shredding

Normally, safety recalls (including the recall of tires) are usually instigated by either the vehicle manufacturers, tire manufacturers or the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. The manufacturer must then file a public report that describes the safety-related defect or noncompliance with a federal motor vehicle safety standard, the involved equipment/vehicle population, the major events that resulted in the recall determination, a description of the solution and a schedule for the recall.

Manufacturers of motor vehicles have a duty to attempt to notify owners of recalled motor vehicles or tires. In situations where state registration records do not exist, vehicle and tire manufacturers are required to notify their distribution chain and known purchasers of the recalled product. Additionally, it is a federal law that a remedied solution is provided, free of cost, if you purchased something that was later recalled.
