Tires are one of the most important safety features to keep compliant with on a vehicle. After all, your entire car relies on the tires ability to grip the road, respond quickly and stop in a timely manner. If one component is slightly off with your tires such as air pressure or tread, you may be facing incredibly dangerous situations. In the event that this is true, we urge you to speak to a New York City injury attorney from our firm as soon as possible. You could be entitled to compensation.

Some of the most common tire issues, and the most frequent problem that requires recalls on tires, is tread. If the tread separates or fails to respond properly to the driver while moving at high speeds, the car may roll-over. Drivers have also been known to over-compensate for the difference in stability after a tire separates, resulting in a major collision. De-treading, blowouts and other types of tread defects can have terrible repercussions.

Another common form of tire failure can involve improper markings. Each set of tires has very specific markings on them that indicate how fast a tire has been estimated to operate at, the weight capacity that they are allotted to carry and the size of the tire. Tires are required to undergo maintained every couple hundred miles and if tires are not properly maintained or wrongly installed because of markings, you may be eligible to receive compensation.

Were you injured because of a tire defect or failure? If so, it is important that you contact an attorney as soon as possible. The sooner you act to retain a strong and competent lawyer who can fully investigate who is responsible, the sooner you can begin receiving your compensation.
