Since the year 2000, several major set of tires have been the subject of a recall. During the early 2000s, our nation saw large scale recalls which included more than 15 million tires. These were several different types of Firestone and Bridgestone brand tires. (Bridgestone Corporation owns the Firestone brand) These recalls were especially focused on those tires put on the Ford Explorer SUV. The alleged defects in these tires supposedly resulted in a large number of rollover accidents and crashes. These accidents killed and/or severely injured hundreds of otherwise innocent motorists. As an example, the Firestone brand “Wilderness AT” tire allegedly lacked proper adhesion holding the steel belts and the rubber surrounding them together. In these Firestone brand tires, Bridgestone allegedly failed to intall “gum edge” strips, caps, nylon overlays or other safety devices to lessen the possibility of the tread separating from the rest of the tire.

Foreign and domestic tire manufacturers alike have allegedly marketed and manufactured defectively designed or defectively manufactured tires which whose defects have resulted in wrongful deaths, personal injuries and damage laden crashes. Keep in mind, however, that tires made outside the United States (such as those made in China) may well not meet the same safety standard as those manufactured within the United States. Also remember, tires are really not designed to last forever, however few miles you may drive each year. The rubber with which they are manufactured does degrade over the passage of time, and vehicle mechanics usually recommend that you purchase and install new vehicle tires every five or six years in time even if there is plenty of tread left visible on the surface of the tire. If your tire exhibited the symptoms of a defect, and that defect caused an accident or damages, call the San Antonio Defective Tire Lawyers at Carabin Shaw. Our veteran tire litigators can fight with you to get you the compensation which you deserve and the law allows.

Tire Safety – Identifying Dangerous Tires

Under inflation of a tire or tires can sometimes be a contributing factor in accidents involving tread separation. This being true, it is the car owner’s responsibility to make sure that the tire’s air pressure inflation is within the manufacturer’s standards. These are usually found on the doorjamb on the driver’s side vehicle door. Under inflation can happen due to air escaping through leaks at the joins of the tire, wheel and valve stem or through the rubber itself through micro cracks. The experienced Defective Tire Attorneys in San Antonio are waiting for your call today. We know tires. Carabin Shaw can get you your best chance at the maximum recovery allowed by law.

You can prevent some failed tires with a simple visual inspecting of your tires at least once a month. You should look for things like cuts or cracking on the sidewalls; excessively worn treads; bulges or blisters on the tire’s surface, uneven treat wear; or if while driving, you feel excessive vibration. You can purchase a quite inexpensive air pressure gauge at an auto parts store, and should use it each month to make sure that your tire’s pressure is within the range recommended by the manufacturer. Always measure the pressure in your tires when they are cold. Your tires can be considered “cold” if they have not been moved in the last three or so hours. If you suffer from a tread separation or your tire blows out, call the Defective Tire Attorneys in San Antonio at Carabin Shaw. Our legal team is ready to work with you to recover as much as possible under the law. We take all of our personal injury cases on a contingent fee basis so you have no financial risk yourself.
