Defense of Product Liability Tire Litigation

Defense Against Tire Defect Claims

With thousands of accidents every year resulting from tire failure, tire litigation is a lucrative product liability practice for countless plaintiffs' attorneys and law firms. While many claims are small and easily managed by tire companies' in-house legal team, some of these claims involve catastrophic personal injuries or complex tort actions. These cases require a team of dedicated lawyers that focuses primarily on defending and trying these cases.

At Yoka & Smith, LLP, our attorneys defend major tire companies throughout the nation against a range of tire claims. With years of experience in successfully defending clients against these claims, we proudly count The Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company, Cooper Tire & Rubber Company and Continental Tire the Americas among our representative clients.

Yoka & Smith, LLP, has recently been selected as an All Star Go-To Law Firm, a distinction given only to law firms that have been selected as Go-To Law Firms for at least five years in a row. When the litigation is high-stakes and losing is not an option, our clients trust the proven efficient and effective defense litigation strategies of Yoka & Smith.
