At Bertoldo, Baker, Carter, Smith & Cullen, our Las Vegas, Nevada product liability attorneys understand that the harsh summertime heat in our city can only increase the dangers of defective auto parts, especially tires that provide the only connection between your vehicle and the road.
The summer months in Las Vegas reach average temperatures of 100 degrees and higher, with the hottest temperature on record reaching 117 degrees. When your vehicle is already operating on defective tires, the heat can increase the dangers that can cause blowouts and tread separation. When a driver loses control because of tire defects, it can lead to serious vehicle collisions with injuries.
Victims may suffer from broken bones, severe burns, neck and spine injuries, head or brain injuries, and even wrongful death because of a tire manufacturer or other responsible party’s failure to ensure safe products were available to consumers. Our Las Vegas personal injury lawyers have extensive experience in handling these complex cases and can help you hold the negligent party responsible for your collision, injuries, and financial recovery.
