In past decades and recent years, massive tire recalls and highly publicized
tragedies have heightened public awareness of the potential design flaws
and manufacturing errors associated with certain tire companies. At Hare
Wynn, our product liability lawyers have been consistently recognized
for their work in cases involving
motor vehicle accidents caused by tire defects. Our firm has been featured in the
Wall Street Journal, Dateline NBC,
USA Today, and
The New York Times for our work in the fields of defective tires and tread separation. We
have attorneys licensed across the U.S. and often work with other lawyers
and firms across the country on these types of complex cases.
From companies that allow foreign objects, such as metal cans and bones
to contaminate tires during the manufacturing process to employees allowing
defective tires to pass through quality control inspections in order to
meet quotas for production bonuses, our firm is committed to holding responsible
parties accountable. It is the goal of this firm to put an end to the
profits-over-safety mentality of many tire manufacturers.
If you or a loved one was harmed as a result of a defective tire or tread
separation, call (855) 997-9319 to schedule a free consultation with
one of our attorneys.
Understanding Tread Separation
There are actually two ways in which tread separation occurs. The first,
more accurately described as belt separation, occurs when the two belts
in a typical car or passenger truck tire become separated over time. The
second instance occurs when separation extends beyond the belts, causing
the tread to delaminate off the belt package. Both instances typically
result in the tire coming apart, which can lead to serious automobile
and truck accidents.
There are many underlying causes for tread separation, including:
- Incorrect flat tire repair
- Careless driving
- Excessive tire wear
- Manufacturing defects
We Stand Up to Major Tire Manufacturers

can be devastating. At Hare Wynn, we are committed to helping our clients
