You have most likely heard of all of the problems over the past few years regarding tire blowouts and de-treading issues. While Firestone was the company that seemed to have received the most attention for this problem due to the highly publicized cases, Firestone certainly is not the only manufacturer that has this type of problem with their tires. Many of the major manufacturers in the tire industry, including Cooper and Goodyear, also have had similar issues with tire tread separation.
Tire de-treading, or separation, happens when the tread of the tire separates from the layers beneath.Our San Bernardino tire blowout lawyers know this can happen very quickly and without warning, and it is very dangerous when it does happen. Detreading can cause the tire to rupture. During a tire blowout, you can easily lose control of your vehicle. If you are traveling at highway speeds when this happens, the possibility of having an accident increases sharply. The blowout can make the vehicle change direction quickly, which can cause the entire vehicle to turn sideways.
When the vehicle turns sideways, it is still in motion. When you are going at highway speeds, and even slower in some cases, this speed can cause your vehicle roll. A rollover accident is very serious and can cause severe injuries and even death. Even if you do not suffer a rollover accident due to a tire blowout, you can be at great risk of other types of accidents. There is a chance that other vehicles could run into yours, which can also cause severe injuries. A tire that blows is one of the most dangerous things you can face on the road. If you have suffered an accident because of a blowout and de-treading it is time that you spoke to a Redlands personal injury attorney to see what kind of case you might have.
Manufacturing and design failures are the most common cause for tire de-treading. When tires are made poorly due to the design or the placement of the belts and the tread, problems can and will most likely occur. Failure to use a safety belt system in the tires is another issue that can cause tire de-treading and subsequent blowouts. Adhesion failures can also occur, often when driving at high speeds or in hot weather. With all of the problems that can happen due to the fault of the manufacturer, it is vital that you speak with a personal injury attorney if you have suffered a tire blowout in the Inland Empire.
