Las Vegas Tire Defect Attorney

Tire defects are exceptionally dangerous types of part malfunctions. Without safe tires, a driver cannot predict or control the vehicle. If you were injured in a motor vehicle crash caused by tire defects, you need an attorney who is capable of handling a potentially complex case. Panish | Shea | Ravipudi LLP have the results to prove the firm’s dedication to client success. We have secured significant verdicts for tire and vehicle defects including a $4.9 billion against GM and the country’s largest defective-tire verdict: $55 million for faulty Bridgestone/Firestone tires.

Don’t trust any other attorneys with your tire defect claim in Las Vegas. We know exactly what it takes to win these types of cases.

Examples of Tire Defects

Tire defects can cause blowouts, tread separation, and serious accidents when a driver loses control. Victims may suffer injuries such as broken bones, severe burns, head or brain injuries, spine injuries, and death because of a vehicle manufacturer’s failure to ensure safe products. The following are types of tire defects that could impact the ability to drive safely:

  • Tires that wear down faster than usual
  • Tires susceptible to holes or blowouts
  • Tires that shred easily with normal use
  • Tires that explode while driving

Tire defects often stem from manufacturer errors. Tires that age faster than normal, those made without proper components, and those with dangerous designs could point to issues that occurred during manufacture. However, other parties could also be liable for bad tires that cause an accident. For instance, if an auto shop used old tires but said they were new or used the incorrect tires for the vehicle, the shop could be liable for tire issues. An investigation from Panish | Shea | Ravipudi LLP could help you understand who might be responsible for your accident.
