When tires are installed properly, they do their job without fail. They take you from point A to point B without any issues. When they aren’t installed properly or when they have a defect, serious problems occur. The U.S. Department of Transportation’s National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) estimates that 11,000 accidents occur due to tire failures each year, and many of those are because of negligence on the manufacturer’s or installer’s part. At Lytal, Reiter, Smith, Ivey & Fronrath, we fight for each of our clients to make them whole again, whether they have suffered a blowout that caused a major accident or a belt separation that sidelined their vehicles for days or weeks. No matter how big or small the damage is, we are on your side every step of the way.
Experience Is on Your Side with Lytal, Reiter, Smith, Ivey & Fronrath
We aren’t new to product liability law. We helped bring punitive damages against Ford and Firestone after the recall of ATX and Wilderness tires, which was a huge win for people all around the country. Due to our work against Ford and Firestone, we received the Steven T. Sharp Public Service Award. This award honored our firm for striving to create a safe, just America. We take pride in this award, and it reminds us what we fight for each time that we take on a new client.
We also provided evidence against Goodyear in 2002, playing a role in the company’s recall of 200,000 tires. This is another example of how we fight to make the roads a safer place. Had we not investigated the tires and handed over the evidence, lives could have been lost. By taking a proactive approach, we may not have made as much money as a law firm, but we saved potential clients from damages that money cannot fix.
Our work shows that our firm doesn’t just want to make money for our clients. We want justice. We strive to make the roads safer for our clients, their families, and the public at large. We also strive to hold tire manufacturers responsible for the tires they put on the vehicles. This is the path to safety for today and tomorrow.
