At Van Sant Law, LLC, our vast knowledge and experience allows us to approach your case energetically and with great conviction. We will investigate to discover the exact tire issue that contributed to the accident and from that determine the appropriate party to sue for compensation.

Some of the ways in which negligence can allow defective tires is as follows:

  • Aged tires: Tires which are otherwise unworn or undamaged still have a limited life due to the rubber with which they’re made chemically altering as time passes. A tire which has spent too long in the warehouse or store before then being sold as a new tire can cause an accident and render the retailer liable.
  • Tire tread separation: This can cause a sudden tire blowout or vehicle rollover, the latter especially in vehicles with a high center of gravity. Tread separation is usually caused by poor quality manufacturing, thus leaving the manufacturer liable for accidents which result.
  • Mismatched tires: This can cause poor vehicle handling and hydroplaning. A mechanic or seller of a car in such a state may be liable in this circumstance.
