Tires are one of the most important parts of your vehicle and, if they malfunction due to a manufacturing defect, you may be able to take legal action and fight for compensation.
When tires malfunction and blow out, they leave drivers extremely vulnerable to an accident.

Consequences of Tire Defects
There have been a number of defective tire recalls, including name brand tires like Ford Firestone, Dunlop, and Cooper, across the United States in the past five years. However, a tire does not need to be recalled to be defective and cause a person undue injury. Some common consequences of tire defects include:
- Tires shredding
- Tire tread separating from rest of tire
- Increased risk of blowouts
If you are driving on defective tires, you face a significant risk of having a tire blowout while driving. Blowouts can significantly increase your chance of being in an accident and suffering potentially serious injuries that could impact every aspect of your life.
It’s time to hold these negligent tire companies responsible for their actions and, at Ritter & Associates, our San Diego tire defect lawyers may be able to help you do that. Contact us at (619) 296-0123 today to discuss how we can help you.
