Tire Manufacturer Lawsuits
Holding Tire Manufacturers Accountable for Their Failures
If your vehicle is recalled for some reason, you’ll probably get a notice from the manufacturer. Auto makers are able to keep track of their vehicles, even if you move or the vehicle changes hands, because vehicles and their VINs are registered with the state where the owner lives. In the case of tire recalls, however, it is not so easy for the owner of the recalled tire to get a notice. For instance, if you bought your tires from a third-party seller, or if you didn’t bother to send in a registration card after your purchase, there may not be a chain linking you to the manufacturer. In the end, it may be up to you to know whether the tires on your vehicle have been subject to recall or not.
Tire makers think they can put the burden on you to know if the tires on your car have been recalled. The fact is, tire manufacturers can and should do more to prevent defective tires from getting into the stream of commerce (and onto your car) in the first place.

Help with Complex Tire Litigation against Major Tire Manufacturers
Tire litigation is complex. It takes a great deal of expertise to determine whether a car accident was caused by a defective tire, and whether that tire defect is the result of a manufacturer’s design defect or manufacturing defect, or some other reason, such as the installation of an old tire by a tire service provider. Our diverse background litigating cases against a number of manufacturers involving a wide range of causes gives us the knowledge and experience needed to take on any tire litigation and aggressively pursue a successful claim.
