Hire Legal Representation for Your Nebraska Tire Defect Case

The quality of the tires on a vehicle play an important role in the overall performance and safety of the vehicle. Tires support a vehicle’s weight, ensure proper maneuvering when making turns, and lessen the impact of the road.

Based on data provided by the United States Department of Transportation (DOT), tires are highly engineered products with 20 or more components in addition to 15 or more rubber components that require extensive design, testing, manufacture, and processing. Tires are expected to perform and be designed to meet the criteria of a vehicle manufacturer’s ride, handling, and traction.

If a tire is improperly manufactured, blow outs and tread separation can occur, which can lead to rollovers and collisions. If a motorist is injured in an accident due to one or more defective tires, the manufacturer could be held liable for negligence.

Defective Tire Accident Injuries

Injuries sustained in accidents and rollovers due to tire tread separation can be life-altering and catastrophic, both for the injured individuals and their families. Oftentimes, intense medical treatment is needed for extended periods of time, if not for the rest of the victim’s life, which can be an extreme financial and emotional burden. Physical therapy, rehabilitation, and extensive surgeries may be required to give back even a portion of the life the victim had prior to the accident. Some catastrophic injuries that may result from a tire tread separation crash include:

Holding Negligent Tire Manufacturers Liable

Tire manufacturers and auto makers alike have a responsibility to the public to develop and produce safe, dependable vehicles. Should the unthinkable happen and a motorist is injured due to negligent design or manufacturing practices, the auto maker could be held liable. With the expenses from an accident steadily increasing, the victim could be entitled to monetary compensation from the negligent party. A Nebraska product liability attorney can help determine the extent of the damages and ensure that proper compensation is given. Types of compensation include:

  • Medical expenses
  • Loss of income
  • Payment for a replacement vehicle
  • Pain and suffering
  • Punitive damages
  • Funeral expenses (in the event of a death)
