Tire defects can cause devastating injuries. This is because bad tires often cause the most serious types of crashes, like rollovers. When the sidewall deforms, SUVs and trucks can tip over. These types of accidents have a 50% fatality rate.
Sidewall deformity is an issue that can also lead to another major tire defect: blowouts. Tire blowouts can cause drivers to lose complete control in heavy traffic, and devastating crashes are likely. It can be difficult on the surface to determine the cause of an accident, but our Florida tire defect lawyers know what to look for, such as:
- Defects leading to deteriorated sidewalls
- Bad tire beads
- Bad tread or retreaded tires
- Failure to advertise a tire’s age
- Missing tire markings, indicating potential recalls

Tire manufacturers have long been held accountable for poor design or construction of their tires. Contaminants in the material expired adhesives, or bad manufacturing practices lead to unsafe, unusable tires—that are then sold to consumers who unwittingly drive on four impending disasters. Check the safety of your tires by running them through the NHTSA database. If your tires are considered unsafe, replace them immediately.
