Yokohama issued a recall of its 529 Yokohama RY023 tires, and you did not get the memo. As you head to work, you suddenly lose control of your car, spinning 180 degrees into oncoming freeway traffic and getting hit head-on by a car that could not brake fast enough to avoid the collision.
You later discover that the tread on one of your Yokohama tires had separated from the tire casing—the very reason the tire manufacturer had issued a recall of these tires.
The injuries you suffered in the accident are painful and debilitating—not to mention expensive. You tell yourself that Yokohama probably will not compensate you because the company did everything to alert you of the tire defect and offered to replace the defective tire free of charge.
We are happy to tell you that you are mistaken. The tire manufacturer is responsible for producing the tire that caused your accident, and that company is obligated to pay you accordingly.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) knows how dangerous a defective tire can be. In 2017, a total of 738 people died on the road in tire-related crashes, the group reports. Sometimes the tire defect is caused by negligent manufacturing. Other times, installation and maintenance lead to tire problems that cause accidents.
To cut the incidence rate of these tragedies, NHTSA teamed with the Department of Transportation to create its TireWise website as a resource for consumers to use when buying new tires or seeking ways to improve the safety of their existing tires.

The stability of a tire means everything in terms of not only the tire’s performance but also the vehicle’s performance. Any defect can cause the tire to malfunction—expand, lose traction, blow out, vibrate, or even fall off. The vehicle ceases to be much good to anyone when any of these events happen.
The most common tire defects are as follows:
Any of these malfunctions can cause a driver to lose control of his vehicle and lead to an accident.
Whether the defect resulted from negligence on the part of the tire manufacturer, tire shop, mechanic, or car owner, somebody breached his or her duty to the consumer and to other motorists.
