Tire Manufacturer Responsibility
Hold Tire Companies Liable with Help from Florida Accident Lawyers
Goodyear, Bridgestone, Michelin, Dunlop, Pirelli, and other tire companies are responsible for designing and manufacturing tires for vehicles. These companies have a responsibility to design the tire correctly, make the tire with good materials, and make sure each layer of the tire is placed precisely on top of the other layer for optimal safety.
Because a tire is made up of many components, each layer needs to be placed accurately in the process. When the inner layer, polyester covering, steel belts, and tire tread are not put together correctly during the tire manufacturing process, air can get trapped inside any of the components. When this happens, tread belt separation can occur and cause a driver to lose control of the car or cause a tire to blowout and a rollover to occur due to defective tires.
When companies take shortcuts, use poor materials, or improperly manufacturer a tire, tire defects can occur and lead to serious South Florida car accidents and injuries.
When a Fort Lauderdale accident leaves you with broken bones, back and neck injuries, head trauma, spinal cord injury, or other serious injuries, you need to seek compensation from the tire manufacturer responsible.

We Can Help You Hold Manufacturers Accountable
Our attorneys stand up for injured consumers and motorists by holding the responsible parties accountable in injury claims and lawsuits. We believe that liable manufacturers should be financially responsible for the injuries and deaths directly attributed to their products. We work with clients to establish that the product was defective and caused the accident and any resultant injuries, thereby establishing the manufacturer’s liability for its product.
Some manufacturers may act negligently, leading to product defects. Federal safety standards lay the groundwork for standards by which manufacturers must abide. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has established minimum safety guidelines. Any tire manufacturer, distributor or retailer that violates those standards demonstrates negligence.
Some of the compensation to which you may be entitled includes:
- medical and hospital bills;
- ongoing medical treatment;
- medical devices and prescription drugs;
- therapy (including physical therapy, cognitive therapy and trauma counseling);
- lost wages and the loss of future income;
- permanent disability;
- pain and suffering; and
- the cost to modify a home or automobile to accommodate the injury.
The personal injury attorneys at our family-owned and -operated law firm will take the time to learn the full extent of your injuries. We want to know how the tire blowout accident has impacted your day-to-day life. With this information, we can determine a fair dollar value to address your short- and long-term needs.
The Scope of a Manufacturer’s Liability for Tire Failure
An important part of building a substantial product liability claim is determining all of the at-fault parties. In a tire blowout claim, this might include:
- supplier (those who supplied the raw materials to the manufacturer);
- shipping company/warehouse;
- marketer; and
We conduct investigations that look beyond the manufacturer to include all parties who may share liability. This allows us to pursue all viable avenues of compensation in your claim.
