Tires fail and blowout frequently due to manufacturing and/or design defects in the tires themselves. Our San Antonio Tire Defect and Blowout Attorneys are well experienced handling the various types of defects which can cause accidents.

Some of the defects are for mostly manufacturing reasons, such as poor sidewall construction, improper curing temperature, faulty tire beads or dirty factory conditions. Also, tires can fail due to use of inferior adhesives and other tire materials. There can be negligent sizing and testing of vital components of the tire. Under-inflated tires can sometimes also cause or contribute to a tire blown out tire. Also, in truth, user problems such as a mismatched rim, mismatched tires, worn out tires, road hazards and over-inflation of tires can contribute to or cause a blowout. If a tire failure does occur and does cause an accident or rollover, other components can also be injury-causing. Components such as door locks, roofs, airbags and seatbelts must be investigated to see if any of these safety related systems failed to perform their function in ensuring the vehicle occupants safety. If you believe that you have been injured by a defective tire caused accident, you should call one of Carabin Shaw’s San Antonio Tire Defect and Blowout Attorneys as soon as you can after the accident. The quicker we can begin our investigation, the better chance you have at getting the monetary recovery you deserve.

Tire Shops can be Negligent

Many shops that sell tires and dealers who sell used tires sell overaged tires which are really too old to use safely on a highway. Some of these used tires have even been subjected to recalls. Some have very little tread life remaining and some others have gotten involved in other vehicle wrecks and even other rollover accidents. Many such used tires have been damaged internally from pot holes or curb strikes. Some have been driven while under-inflated for too long or they have excessive tire plugs or patches. If a tire shop worker or his boss the owner fails to warn or advise you of these bad tires and of the need for new tires, then the seller may be legally negligent and/or liable for any injury which occurs. Additionally some, especially used, tire shops do not inflate the tires properly to an amount of air pressure which is correct or they install the newest or best tires in the front instead in the vehicle’s rear axle. Such actions can, and do, lead to tire blowout accidents, severe tire failure or a loss of traction or control on a highway. If this sort of thing happens to you, then the tire retailer or shop can be found legally liable. If the shop from which you bought your tire may be negligent, call a Tire Defect and Blowout Lawyers in San Antonio at Carabin Shaw today. We have the knowledge and experienced to get you your best chance at fair and full compensation.
