San Jose Tire Defect Lawyer

Injuries Caused by Faulty Tires in Santa Clara County and the Bay Area

Tire defects that cause tire treads to separate are a hidden danger that many motorists may not be aware of. If you have been injured or a family member has been killed in a car accident caused by defective tires, you will need to determine what happened and how you can take legal action against the parties who were responsible. Accidents may occur because of a sidewall tire blowout or a tire malfunction following the improper installation of a tire on a wheel. However, as you recover from a serious injury in the hospital, there is probably no way to determine the causes of an accident on your own.

John J. Garvey, III, a product liability attorney in San Jose, brings 45 years of experience to the table when he advocates on behalf of injured motorists, pedestrians, bicyclists, and motorcyclists. With his years of in-depth experience handling injury claims, he knows when it is time to bring in expert witnesses such as product engineers and manufacturing experts. He will work to identify defects that led to an accident and hold a negligent tire manufacturer or installer liable for your injuries and damages.

Tire Injuries Often Come as a Surprise

You may be shocked and dismayed to learn that the car or truck that you trusted with your life had a dangerous defect, such as defective tires that have been named in a recall. Perhaps you never got the news that the brand of tires used on your car had been identified as the culprit in other accidental injury cases. Perhaps the tire defect on your car had not yet been identified as a major risk factor, and recall had not yet been performed.

Whatever the facts of your case, if you suffered a serious head injury, broken bones, spinal cord injury, or loss of a loved one in a major car accident, you deserve to know how it happened — and where compensation should come from. Is it the tire manufacturer, vendor, or installer? Our law firm can help get you answers, and we will work to ensure that you will be fully compensated for the harm done to you and your family.

Protect the Evidence
