Defective tires may cause skidding accidents

Posted on June 8, 2015 3:21 pm under Automotive Defects

Snow and rain could make the road dangerously slippery. When driving under these conditions, it is important to have a reliable set of tires that maintain their grip on the road. Mounting poorly designed and manufactured tires or using worn-out tires can put you at risk of injurious, sometimes even fatal skidding accidents.

The tread is the part of the tire that comes in contact with the road. It is composed of patterns of groves and blocks that serve to provide a firm grip between the tread and the surface of the road. When designed properly, treads do not only improve car handing; they also improve traction, preventing the tire from slipping even in poor road conditions.

If you believe the skidding accident you have been involved in resulted from a defective tire, a lawyer at Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. ® might be able to represent you in a case against the tire maker involved.
