Florida Defective Tire Accident Attorneys
There are very few law firms in the state of Florida that have actually handled a defective tire accident cases. Our Florida defective tire attorneys have handled numerous defective tire claims against the world’s largest tire manufacturers such as Goodyear, Continental, Firestone, Cooper, Bridgestone, Michelin, Pirelli, Dunlop, General, Kumho, Yokohama, BFGoodrich and Uniroyal. Florida defective tire cases are aggressively defended by tire manufacturers as they almost never agree that they have sold a dangerous or defective tire. While many tire manufacturers will issue a tire recall for a defective tire, this usually does not occur until serious injury has occurred to numerous people. Despite Firestone’s previous recall of millions of tires they continued to dispute the government’s opinion that their tires were defective.
TIRE MANUFACTURER AND OTHERS CAN BE RESPONSIBLE FOR DEFECTIVE TIRES
In the state of Florida, the law is well established that a tire manufacturer, tire reseller and tire installer can be held liable for the injuries that a person sustains as a result of a defective tire. When hiring a Florida defective tire lawyer you must select a law firm that has worked with the world’s leading experts and understands all of the potential causes for a defective tire. In almost every tire defect case it is the defect of the tire which causes a driver to lose control of the vehicle and subsequently crash or roll their vehicle.
The fact that a tire has blown or experienced a tread separation does not automatically mean that it is a defective tire. Most tire manufacturers will argue that a tire auto accident was either driver error or negligent care of the tire by the owner of the vehicle. Our job as Florida tire attorneys is to prove the tire manufacturer wrong and obtain maximum compensation for our client’s lost wages, medical bills and pain and suffering.
