Experienced Defective Vehicle Tires Attorneys in Texas and New Mexico
At the Ruhmann Law Firm, our personal injury attorneys in New Mexico and Texas know that a vehicle’s tires are one of the most integral parts of the car, truck, SUV, or motorcycle’s ability to travel safely on our roadways.
When someone purchases a new vehicle, they are confident in its structural integrity, including the fact that it has new tires that will last for years to come with proper maintenance.
Unfortunately, when defective tires are added to new cars, or released to tire shops across the U.S. to be used as replacements on existing vehicles, people can get hurt or killed when they fail.
If you or someone you love has been hurt or killed in a collision caused by defective vehicle tires, contact our skilled personal injury lawyers in Texas and New Mexico today to learn more about your legal rights to hold the liable party accountable for your full financial recovery.
What are the Most Common Types of Vehicle Tire Defects in Texas and New Mexico?
Whether defective tires are caused by the manufacturer’s use of inferior goods or improper production process, a retailer or service provider placing recalled — or otherwise defective — tires on a consumer’s vehicle, or another third party’s involvement in the production, distribution, or sale of the tires, motorists can be catastrophically injured or killed when the defective tire(s) fails.
Common results of vehicle tire defects can include:
- Tire explosions
- Tread separation
- Belt separation
- Wearing on one side of the tire
These defects can create a variety of collision scenarios, including:
- Loss of control of the vehicle
- Running off the road
When a vehicle is suddenly out of the driver’s control, serious accidents can result.
Drivers may collide with another vehicle, cause an accidental chain reaction, or pile up on the road, or pieces of the tire itself can be ejected from the vehicle, injuring pedestrians, bicyclists, or even other motorists.
Our clients and their insurance coverage should not be responsible for paying for the collision, injuries, and overall damages that result from the liable party’s negligence.
If you have been involved in a vehicle accident with injuries or fatalities caused by defective tires, contact our skilled New Mexico and Texas personal injury lawyers today to get the help you need to hold the liable party accountable for your full financial recovery.
Who Can Be Held Liable for Vehicle Tire Defects in Texas and New Mexico?
At the Ruhmann Law Firm, our Texas and New Mexico defective tire attorneys must first determine the problem that occurred with the faulty tires and tie the defect to the collision.
Then we must determine the origin of the defect, and who is liable for each of our client’s accidents, injuries, or fatalities caused by the tires’ issues.
That may include the tire(s):
- Materials provider
- Retailer that sells recalled or damaged tires
- Service center or mechanic that fails to alert the consumer to a tire’s defects
It is important to understand that not all tire blowouts or wear and tear that causes an accident is the result of a defect. There are times when motorists may collide with hazardous debris in the road that punctures their tires. Other times, the motorists may have neglected to take care of any maintenance issues that led to the tire’s diminished integrity.
In these instances, or others like them, the result of the accident may fall on the vehicle’s owner or another party. We can help determine the cause of the crash, and who may be held responsible for the resulting damages.
Our skilled defective tires attorneys in New Mexico and Texas do not have to pinpoint who is responsible for the failure. However, we must show that the tires were, indeed, defective, and that our client’s accident, injuries, or their loved one’s fatality was caused by the defect.
Once we can meet the legal threshold for your unique defective tire case, we will aggressively go to pursue a successful outcome for your unique needs.
What Type of Financial Recovery Can I Pursue During a Defective Tire Case in Texas or New Mexico?
Depending on our injuries and the overall damages you incurred, your financial recovery options may differ from another personal injury victim.
That may include compensation for your:
- Medical expenses
- Lost wages and reduced earning capacity
- Pain and suffering
- The negative impact on the quality of life
- Punitive damages to punish the manufacturer
- Wrongful death compensation
If you have been injured because of defective tires, do not let the corporation that is responsible for their failure, the resulting crash, and damages intimidate you.
Our skilled defective vehicle injury attorneys in New Mexico and Texas have the experience, skill, and resources our clients need to pursue actual results from these corporate giants.
We will aggressively pursue the liable party — or combination of parties — for your complete damages, so you can focus on getting the medical care you need to get your life back.
