When Defective Tires Cause Atlanta Accidents

When driving around Atlanta, you may be looking out for dangerous drivers, drunk drivers, aggressive drivers, and even road hazards in order to avoid an Atlanta auto accident. But what about looking at your own tires? Many people forget that their tires are critical to their safety on the road, and therefore neglect to inspect them.

Because tires are literally the link between the road and your car, you need to take care of them. This includes making sure they are properly inflated, have the correct air pressure per the manufacturer's recommendations, are rotated often, and are replaced when they don't have enough tread left. But even if you do all of these things, you could still be involved in an Atlanta crash due to bad tires.

Sadly, vehicle manufacturers still place defective tires on the market. Tire defects can be caused by:

  • Design flaws
  • Manufacturing errors
  • Bad materials
  • Adhesive breakdowns
  • Poor quality control checks

If tires blow out, have a sidewall failure, or explode, the root of the problem could be a defect. When this happens, a driver needs to get his or her tires inspected and contact a skilled Atlanta accident attorney for help.
