Tire Defect Accident
Each time you buy new tires for your vehicle you assume that if you maintain these tires well, you will be able to reduce the risk of experiencing any kind of Tire defect accident. However this may not be true, there are high chances that newly purchased tires also can be defective and compromised due to manufacturing defects or unsafe design. If a tire experiences tread separation or undergoes a blowout, it can result into serious or fatal roadway accidents. In spite of knowing the potential hazards associated with defective tires, people tend to overlook the condition and quality of tires while purchasing a vehicle. Though tire defect accidents can be fatal and can cause catastrophic injuries, even National Highway Transportation Safety Administration (NHTSA) provides very little information and guidance on tire safety.
They just give basic guidance on the balance and alignment of the tires and how to properly inflate tires to maintain the recommended level of tire pressure for safe driving.
Tire defect accidents can be fatal and catastrophic but the only thing understood by the negligent and unbothered manufacturers is money.If you or your family has been a victim of tire defect accident, we at Khashan Law can file a suit to hold these negligent retailers and manufacturers accountable for their actions.
Reasons for Tire Defect Accidents:
- Sudden de-treading of the tires
- Unexpected tire flats or tire punctures

Liability of a Tire Defect accident:
As Rubber grows old it tends to oxidize, which weakens it. Retailers dealing in rubber tires are aware that tires which are over six years old are no longer sturdy and they should not be sold to the consumers. When a tire retailer knowingly sells an old tire to the consumer, he can be held liable if the tires he sold are responsible for an accident. If a manufacturer of tires fails to offer repeated warnings against usage and sale of old tires, our team of personal injury lawyers will fight on your behalf to receive compensation you deserve.
Our team of lawyers has a good understanding of the manufacturing process and they will check with the tire experts to know if there were any defects in the manufacturing process which resulted in the accident. We are very thorough with our work, we will check the manufacturing date and inspect the plant where the tires were manufactured to confirm the age of the tires and to study if there are any issues with the manufacturing process. Even a small defect or negligence can cause a fatal or catastrophic injury. Therefore it is important that all the facts and angles are studied to build a strong case for the victim. We at Khashan Law have years of experience handling these types of tire defect accidents in California and will be able to represent you well and help you obtain the best compensation.
