Pursuing Full Compensation for Accident Victims
Product liability legal actions are taken when a company that designs, manufactures, distributes or sells a product fails in their duty to protect the consumer. These costly errors can be anything from improper manufacturing techniques that create an unsafe product to a failure to warn or an inadequate warning as to its correct usage. In the case of tires, if they are improperly made, a separation of the tread can occur.
When this happens at high speeds, the following scenarios can occur:
- A driver can lose control of the vehicle, leading to a rollover accident.
- Tire blowout can happen if inferior quality materials are used in its manufacture or the tire is over or under-inflated.
- Tire explosion while being changed – This type of accident is normally associated with the use of tire sealant to temporarily repair a tire.
How the Florida Law Group Can Help
Our job is to investigate and document what brought about your injuries and to prove who was responsible for the dangerous product. At this point, either through negotiation with the culpable party or by actions taken at Trial, we work to recover compensation that reflects the degree of the injuries and other damages.
You may be awarded compensation for:
- Property damage
- Medical bills
- Costs for future treatments
- Lost wages (present and future)
It is necessary, however, that we get to work quickly on your case. Physical evidence, witness statements, police reports, and other important information are all essential to your case and these only deteriorate with time.
