Your Advocate For Fighting Auto And Tire Defects

In the realm of personal injury, faulty and defective products are often the culprits behind accidents that lead to injuries or even death. Product liability laws exist to place responsibility squarely on those involved in the design, manufacture and sale of products establishing, the expectation that these products are safe for consumers.

When a product falls short of this expectation and causes harm, the law provides a means for victims or their survivors to seek compensation for various damages, including medical expenses, pain and suffering, mental anguish and more.

Holding Accountable Those Responsible

The list of parties who may be held accountable for the safety of a product includes:

  • The seller, distributor or store that sold the product
  • The wholesaler
  • The manufacturer
  • The manufacturer of individual components
  • The designers
  • The inspectors

When these responsible parties neglect their duties, it can mean serious injuries for you or your loved ones.

Tire Defects

Tire defects are a subset of product liability cases that can lead to serious accidents and injuries. Various parties may be held responsible for personal injuries or deaths associated with defective tires, including tire manufacturers, tire retailers and car dealerships.

Such negligence can pose a danger not only to the vehicle’s occupants but also to other road users.
