Defective Tires Attorney, San Francisco
Tires are among the most important components of a vehicle. They are the only point where the vehicle connects with the road and thus they must perform correctly for the occupants to be safe. Some aspects of tire performance are the driver’s responsibility, such as maintaining the proper inflation pressure. However, many serious accidents are caused by the defective design or manufacturing of the tires themselves. These hidden defects cannot be detected or avoided by even the most vigilant and attentive drivers.
If a tire is designed or manufactured improperly, people can, and frequently do, die or suffer severe personal injuries in car, truck and motorcycle accidents. More than 8,000 motor vehicle accidents per year are caused by tire failure. Many of these failures are the direct result of a manufacturing or design defects. Defective tires can be the result of many factors, including poor design, faulty or incompatible materials, improper tire storage or flawed production and manufacturing.
Vehicle tires are manufactured by large corporations throughout the world. Like any business, these companies exist to make money for themselves and their shareholders. However, unlike most businesses, they make a product that is essential to public safety. Tire manufacturers often ignore the dangers their products pose to the public because to acknowledge or correct a design or manufacturing defect can be very costly. For the manufacturer, public safety is a simple matter of dollars and cents.
