Are Tire Recalls Usually Too Late To Stop Deaths And Injuries?

As crazy as it sounds, even though a poorly made vehicle can kill you, a recall usually won’t stop that from happening. In particular, tire recalls by companies like Firestone issued a recall in 2000, and Dunlop and Uniroyal have also issued recalls.

Blown Tire. US Marines 29 Palms car accident in desert.But usually, these recalls are not issued until after there have been injuries and deaths.

Defective tires can be the cause of catastrophic injuries and deaths due to the flaw, and these can result in:

Tire construction, tire manufacturing defects, design defects, tread separation, de-treading, tire shredding, or adhesion failure.

  • Tire Separation: Tire separation occurs due to builder defects that cause the tread to separate from the tire at highway speeds. This higher speed can cause the tire to blow out. Also, it can cause vehicles like SUVs to roll over. This can cause serious injuries or fatalities. Tire tread separation has been the cause of many recalls. And the Firestone tire recall totaled 14.4 million. That is a lot of bad tires! Any of them could mean the death of hundreds in a car accident.
  • Aged Tires: Aged tires can be defective. Because tires, like other things, have a limited life, they need to be checked. This means a tire that has never been used but is five years old can be defective. You see, the rubber chemically changes after a certain amount of time. Drivers having new tires put on their vehicles have no idea how long the tires sat in the tire retail shop.Old tires can slide out and cause the driver to lose control. Examples of why to include a tire blowout; both cause serious injuries or death. Traction is a significant problem with aged tires.

ALERT: Tread Separation Cases

Some of these tires reportedly had a defect in which the gum strip was never installed. This piece combines the different belts of the tires to make it safer.

Those with no strips are in danger of catastrophic failure, likely leading to a car crash and injury. Ehline Law Firm is a company of experts in these types of personal injury claims.
