Sports utility vehicles are, in general, much heavier than sedans and other vehicles on the road. As such, they rely heavily on their tires to provide enough support to keep them mobile and safe for their drivers and passengers.
Unfortunately, defective tires may inhibit this ability and lead to rollovers. If you or someone you love suffered injuries in a rollover accident caused by faulty tires, contact the SUV rollover lawyers of the Willis Law Firm at 800-883-9858 to discuss your options.
Tires are hollow rubber shells that must be inflated with a particular amount of air. Tires are covered with rubber tread, which helps with traction, and are held together structurally with metal cables on the inside.
Should any of tire parts fail, drivers could lose control of their vehicles. Typically, tire failure occurs in the form of tread separation or catastrophic blowout. Since both of these errors happen suddenly, often at high speeds, drivers have little time to react.
Sadly, losing control of a vehicle can lead to rollovers in SUVs and other vehicles. When tires are to blame for a rollover, the tire’s manufacturer may be liable for the injuries that result from the rollover accident.
