Practice Area : Tire Defects
The law firm of Gillin, Jacobson, Ellis, Larsen & Lucey has over thirty years’ experience handling cases of auto accident lawsuits and tire defect cases in the San Francisco Bay Area and throughout Northern California.
One common tire defect occurs when a tire is improperly manufactured. This faulty design can rapidly break down the treads or the rubber quality in a short amount of time. Premature cracks can occur in the tire itself, causing tread and tire failure and a risk of serious accidents and injuries.
Over the past ten years several major tire corporations have been held liable for their products and the subsequent injuries and deaths that resulted from those defects. Millions of dollars in damages have been paid out in lawsuits brought against the car industry stemming from these defective tires.
Defective tires become particularly dangerous when the tire’s tread and belt separate from the main portion of the tire. This situation can lead to a complete lack of control over the vehicle and has resulted in several serious injuries and deaths throughout the country.

Because many tire manufacturers have been found to know about some of the tire defects in their products, they have been held liable for damages even if an accident has not occurred. Several new laws have been put into effect since it became known that many tire manufacturers used lower quality rubber in their products, which caused the eventual breakdown of the tire.
