Does it warrant investigating why the tire blew-out to determine if a manufacturing defect was responsible for the crash? Well, yes if the injury is serious. … Many things can go wrong, but steel-belted radial tires, for example, are especially prone to tread separation, and when such a tire failure lead to loss of control of a vehicle and serious injury, an attorney should be consulted.
