Defective products, especially those that find their way into our cars and trucks, can cause devastating and permanent injuries. While not all of us drive cars as old as the one shown to the left, even newer tires can separate, leave the manufacturing plant with defects or be unsafe for other reasons. So, here is a quiz I saw in the Florida Bar newspaper:
Question: Which of these tires can put you or your loved ones at risk for a tread separation due to their age ?
- The unused spare tire
- Tires over 6 years old
- Old tires with good treads
- All of the above
The correct answer is #4. If you or someone you know has been injured in a car or truck crash and there defective automotive products, issues of product misuse and abuse or unsafe tires as a cause, please contact us at once at 703-796-9555.
