Your car’s tires have a profound effect on how your vehicle operates. If your tires are not performing according to basic safety standards because they are defective or faulty in any capacity, your safety is being unnecessarily compromised. If you are in an accident as a result of damaged or defective tires, you may need an experienced tire failure attorney to represent your rights.
Because of the nature of recalls in the auto industry, public announcements are not often made until accidents have already happened to call attention to the defects. As a result, lives are often lost before the defect has been revealed.
To prevent you and your loved ones from becoming victims of accidents related to tire failure, you can visually inspect and regularly monitor your tires on a regular basis to identify signs of impending tire failure, which can include:
- Uneven tread wear which can be indicative of improper inflation, misalignment, or other tire damage
- Bulges or blisters on the sidewall signifying potential weak spots
- Excessive vibrating when driving which can be caused by misalignment, unbalanced or bent tires or other more serious types of internal tire damage
- Excessively wear resulting in inadequate tread
By identifying these early warning signs, you can decrease the likelihood of becoming involved in an auto accident due to faulty or damaged tires. Unfortunately, though, accidents will still happen.
