There is nothing worse than sustaining a serious injury due to no fault of your own. Unfortunately, this is a stark reality for many individuals every single day here in Texas. Though auto accidents are most frequently caused by dangerous drivers, the truth is, they can also happen as a result of malfunctioning car parts, such as defective tires. That said, when someone is hurt due to defective tires, there is a chance they’ll have a valid personal injury claim. Read on and reach out to a seasoned Corpus Christi, Texas defective tires lawyer to learn more about these cases and how our legal team can help you fight for the compensation you deserve and need to heal. Here are some of the questions you may have:
What commonly causes tires to become defective?
There is a wide range of factors that can cause tires to become defective, and, therefore, dangerous. Just some of those are as follows:
- Defective beads
- Sidewall failures
- Poor adhesion
- Tread separation or other tread issues
- Using poor materials to manufacture the tires
How do I know who is responsible?
Depending on the circumstances of your injury and the defect in question, likely either the product designer or the product manufacturer will be liable for your injuries. For example, if you can prove that you were injured due to a dangerous tire design, you will likely file a product liability lawsuit against the tire designer. However, if your accident was caused due to an error made during manufacturing, such as failing to ensure treads are separated or using inadequate adhesion on the tire, you will likely have a claim against the product manufacturer.
How long will I have to file a lawsuit?
In Texas, injury victims are required to file personal injury claims within two years of the date their injury occurred. Waiting longer than two years will likely result in you losing your right to sue. The sooner you get in touch with our firm, the sooner we can get started working on your case.
