Cedar Rapids Tire Defects Lawyers
Though we would prefer not to have to plan for the possibility of an auto accident, the reality is that collisions occur with alarming frequency and each year millions of Americans are hurt in car crashes. Drivers can do their part to reduce the risk by obeying the pertinent laws of the roadway, but they are entirely at the mercy of defective or malfunctioning parts.
Tire defects are one of the most common threats for which negligent manufacturers are responsible, and they are incredibly dangerous because they can cause a driver to lose control of his or her vehicle. If you have been injured due to a defective tire, Leehey Olson Law, P.C., can help you fight for the compensation that you need.
Types of Tire Defects
There is simply no way that a vehicle can operate without properly functioning tires, meaning that the consequences of driving on defective tires can be devastating. This substantially elevates the obligation of tire manufacturers to provide a product that does not expose a driver and his or her passengers to unnecessary harm. Yet design and manufacturing defects are still common, and typically include:
- Thin Sidewalls
- Tread Separation
- Belt Separation
- Blistering Rubber
- Bursting due to Improper Inflation
It is important that you seek to hold the appropriate parties accountable for damages that you have sustained due to their negligence. Contact the Cedar Rapids tire defects lawyers of Leehey Olson Law, P.C. at (319) 294-4424 to discuss the facts of your case.
