Tire failure can have several different causes, and they can be grounds for a lawsuit. Tire failure expert witnesses may have a background in the automotive industry, mechanical engineering, materials science, vehicle design and engineering, accident reconstruction, failure analysis, or other related disciplines. The design and manufacture stages of a tire, as well as proper maintenance and care, may all factor into an instance of tire failure. Tire failure-related legal actions usually focus on determining the cause for the tire failure.
A tire failure analysis can be done by an expert witness or consultant, and the result may be a deciding factor in a lawsuit. Selecting the right expert is a crucial and highly relevant decision in reaching a successful outcome to your case. This process may benefit from an accident investigation and reconstruction as a means of finding the source of the failure, whether it is on behalf of the engineering process failing to meet the required standards of care, or a human error made by the consumer after the tires have been properly installed. Consumers may neglect to follow up on the required automotive repair, which can have a negative effect on tire performance and condition. Tire failure expert witnesses are often knowledgeable in other automotive areas, including hydraulics, brake failure, engine failure, airbags, seat belts, and vehicle design.
