Tire Tread Separation Lawsuits

Our Product Liability Attorneys in Birmingham Can Advocate for You

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:

  • Over-inflation
  • Incorrect flat tire repair
  • Potholes
  • Careless driving
  • Excessive tire wear
  • Manufacturing defects
