Defective Tire Blowouts
We all know that driving is one of the most dangerous activities you can take part in, but injuries do not always happen the way you would think. Despite the high cost of tires, they do not always live up to the safety standards advertised.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration estimates that tire blowouts cause more than 400 deaths each year. An additional 78,000 tire blowouts are responsible for crashes in a given year.
At Gamez Law Firm, we understand that many tire blowouts have nothing to do with the driver. The tire companies are concerned, first and foremost, with growing sales. To accomplish that, they must invest in creating safe tires, but only to the extent that they have to. Insurance companies that represent product manufacturers (and other automotive companies) will do everything they can to avoid responsibility for blowouts that lead to injury or death, but at Gamez Law Firm, our lawyers have the experience to take them on.
What Is A Product Liability Claim?
If you were sold a defective tire, you are well-positioned to make a product liability claim. Product liability allows the manufacturer or seller to be held responsible for the distribution of a dangerous or defective product. A product can be defective in any of the following ways:
- Defectively designed
- Defectively manufactured
- Defectively marketed
At Gamez Law Firm, we stand up for victims of accidents, period. We will help you prepare a product liability claim or another type of injury-related claim and fight for maximum compensation.
