Areas of Law / Personal Injury

A tyre blew out on my son’s car several months ago and caused a bad accident. My son and his friends were injured, and the car, which was only three months old, was written off. Have we any claim against the tyre manufacturer for such a fault?

Possibly, but where is the tyre now? It needs to be examined by specialists to determine what caused the blow-out. If the tyre is found to have been defective you will have a claim against the manufacturer, but there are any number of other possible reasons why it could have burst: your son could have run over a sharp object, the tyre may have been under (or over) inflated, or there could have been some fault with the car’s steering. Your son should see a solicitor specialising in personal injury cases. His friends may have a claim on his insurance.
