Can I Sue The Tire Manufacture For My Motorcycle Accident Since The Tires Were New?
It may seem like a motorcycle is safer when it is new and it has new tires and brakes, but the reality is that a motorcycle accident can occur involving new and old bikes. There could be multiple reasons for motorcycle accidents, but tires are often a common theme in Florida motorcycle crashes.
With older bikes, tires are of concern because motorcyclists may not inspect them regularly, maintain them properly, or a rider may push the tires past their tread limit or ride them over-inflated or under-inflated. Any of these situations can lead to a motorcycle accident due to a tire blowout.
With new tires, many motorcyclists don’t realize that tires may come defective from the manufacturer, or the dealer may have not done its part in taking off some of the waxy coating that was left on the tires from the molding process. If you were in a South Florida motorcycle wreck and you believe your new tires were to blame, it is critical that you seek legal advice immediately.
Your lawyer will know how to preserve your tires for evidence, have them inspected by an expert, and will help you pursue a claim for damages against the manufacturer or dealer.
