The Firestone Tire recall of 2000 brought to the public’s awareness the potential dangers of badly manufactured or designed tires. Tire manufacturer recalls are not uncommon. In fact, every major tire manufacturer—Ford Firestone, Uniroyal, Dunlop, and Cooper included—has issued them at one point or another. But in the vast majority of cases, these recalls have only come after a significant number of consumers had been injured or killed by defective tires. Defective tires can separate easily and cause a crash, becoming the direct cause of a catastrophic injury or wrongful death.

We know that defectively designed or defectively manufactured tires will come apart at a high rate of speed. A tire blowout can cause pieces of the tire to wrap around the wheel, affecting the control of your vehicle. In such circumstances, a vehicle may take a sharp turn or flip and overturn several times. Occupants of the vehicle are likely to suffer catastrophic injury or death. Tire failures are particularly dangerous when the vehicle is traveling at highway speeds. Tire failures are also more likely to lead to rollovers when they occur on a vehicle with a high center of gravity, such as many popular sport utility vehicles. When a tragedy of this nature has occurred, you want to know who or what was responsible for the tire blowout that caused the serious injury or death. In the case of tire defect (e.g. tread separation), a claim may demonstrate that faulty design led to the blown tire and caused a crash.
Tire blowouts can occur for a number of reasons, including the following:
