Tire Defects, Tire Recalls, Non-Recalls and SUV Rollovers

Every year there are thousands of people who suffer serious bodily injuries or wrongful death are injured due to defective tires. The manufacturers often discover that they have released defective tires and circulate recall notices for defective tires that are published. However, in many instances manufacturers release defective tires that is not recalled even though their products result in serious injury or death. It takes a skilled lawyer to know what to do in such situations and employ competent experts and investigators to establish a claim. The pursuit of a lawsuit against a manufacturer and its distributors requires ample resources to successfully reach a satisfactory settlement offer or verdict.

Tire Tread Separation

Tire tread separation is the result of a defect that occurs during the manufacturing process that leads to injury or death. The tread separation evolves when the tread of the tire starts coming apart, separates from the tire, and causes the vehicle to rollover, resulting in a roof crush. The tread separation will usually cause a blowout that leads to the operator of a SUV losing control of the vehicle and causing it to rollover. The roof of a SUV crushes from the rollover as a direct result of inferior roof structures, weak roof pillars and headers, and inadequate support systems.

Tire Defect Recalls

Many manufacturers have recalled defective tires and circulated notices of certain defects. It is important to identify markings of a tire to determine the nature of the defect. Each tire has particular markings that identify the tire, including numerical markings, size, weight, and speed. We have learned that manufacturer’s recognize that tire separation results from defective designs and placement of radial belts and overlying treat. The adhesion process if often the cause of the separation because of the use of improper adhesives, including improper temperatures, inferior grades, improper manufacturing processes, improper procedures and operations, improper bonding methods, unclean facilities and contaminants.

Tire Defect Investigations

Our firm is of the opinion that it is essential to immediately commence an investigation and send an investigator to the scene to gather evidence. After the tire separates, the tread scatters everywhere at the scene and retrieving the separated tread can defeat defensive theories designed to diminish your recovery, such as nail punches, tire repairs, previous flats, improper tire pressure, and other defensive tactics. We employ experienced investigators who know what to look for and how to preserve the evidence for trial. If you or a member of your family has suffered serious injuries or death arising out of tire defect and SUV rollover, we are available to immediately consult with you and pursue your case immediately.

Tire Defects Cause SUV Rollovers

SUV’S are dangerous motor vehicles because they have the propensity to roll over especially when a blowout occurs and the tire separates from itself or the wheel.  The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) regulates automobile safety standards, investigates safety defects in motor vehicles and enforces fuel economy standards and conducts research on driver behavior and traffic safety. NHTSA has published reports that most SUV’s have a high center of gravity and when combined with a narrow track width, it creates a propensity for SUV’s to rollover. Since SUV’S have become family vehicles, more weight has increased the vehicles propensity to roll, and resulted in causing victims to suffer serious bodily injury or death.

When an SUV rolls over, the seat belt in these vehicles is not designed to tie you to the seat, and result is that the roof is flimsy and will crash from 10-12 inches, or you may be flailed around with your seat belt on, causing serious head injuries or fatalities. When combined with a defective tire, the propensity to roll is enhanced threefold and likelihood of serious bodily injury or death to the occupants is imminent.
