Rollovers and Tire-Tread Separation

Phoenix Car Crash Lawyers Protecting Your Rights After a Rollover or Tire-Tread Separation Accident

Seeking high-value compensation for catastrophic car crashes in Arizona

A vehicle rollover can be devastating. The violent nature of these unexpected events can leave you with catastrophic injuries that may require a lifetime of expensive medical treatments. Tire-tread separation is commonly at fault in a vehicle rollover incident. The sudden loss of tire pressure can cause you to lose control of the vehicle. Particularly when this happens at a high rate of speed, there is a substantial risk that your vehicle may roll over. According to Consumer Reports, these circumstances only happen in about 3% of all vehicle crashes, yet they account for about 30% of all collision-related fatalities.

Since 1991, the Phoenix law firm of Plattner Verderame, P.C. has been a place where honest people with legitimate injuries receive high-quality legal services. We provide each of our clients with the care and support they need to obtain justice. Our experienced Phoenix rollover injury lawyers understand that defendants in rollover cases have millions of dollars at stake and are well funded to minimize their losses. That’s why we aggressively fight to assert your rights and get you the compensation your injuries deserve.

The deadly combination of tire failure and rollover events

Many rollover accidents are caused by defective products. The defect may be in the vehicle itself, the tires it rides on or both. How or why do tires fail? Sometimes a tire is damaged by sharp objects in the road or by failure to maintain correct tire inflation and pressure. But manufacturing defects all too often cause the tread to separate suddenly from the tire body, resulting in a catastrophic inability to control the vehicle.

If separation occurs within one of your front tires, you have a higher chance of regaining control of the vehicle. However, if the tread separation affects a rear tire, the loss of control is generally more serious, often ultimately resulting in a catastrophic rollover crash. Rollover crashes are often complex and require multiple experts to prove fault. Our knowledgeable Phoenix rollover injury attorneys have decades of experience handling product liability cases like these. Even a well-designed car can roll over — but when a rollover is caused by bad design or unsafe manufacturing, we can help.

Successful Phoenix litigators always ready for trial

As thousands of cases against Firestone, Bridgestone, Michelin and other companies have proven, it isn’t just discount tire brands that fail. Even the most expensive tires may be improperly designed or manufactured. While you may question whether to pursue legal action for compensation, these types of actions go a long way to make cars safer for everyone on the roadway. By holding responsible parties accountable, you are able to alert other consumers about the potential problems, while hopefully influencing companies to better ensure the safety of their tires and automotive products.

Our lawyers have the skill and experience to assert your claim against even the largest corporations. We prepare every case for trial and we are not afraid to litigate if that’s what it takes to secure the compensation your case deserves.
