Increasing Public Awareness and Bringing Scrutiny to Accidents Caused by Tire Defects
When millions of Bridgestone and Firestone brand tires were recalled in 2001, public awareness of the term “tread separation” rose dramatically. This recall took place only after many deaths and severe injuries occurred due to tire blowouts and resultant accidents, primarily involving SUVs and pickups.
At the Law Offices of Mathys & Schneid, attorneys Mark W. Mathys and Mark T. Schneid have decades of experience investigating tire blowout cases and other Illinois motor vehicle accidents of all types. We pursue maximum compensation for victims in the Chicago metro area and western suburbs.

Among our success stories is a confidential settlement for a client who suffered a closed head injury when an SUV crashed and rolled in Ghana, West Africa, due to a tire tread separation. We filed suit against a well-known SUV and tire manufacturer and reached a settlement during mediation.
Extensive Knowledge of Tire Manufacturing Defects, Recalls and Consequences
Working with top-quality accident reconstructionists and other experts as necessary, our lawyers are well-prepared to pursue your valid claim involving:
- A Ford Explorer or other SUV or van rollover accident that may have been caused by a tire blowout in conjunction with the vehicle’s high center of gravity and inherent instability
- Any other type of car accident that proves to involve tires made of contaminated or inadequately cured rubber — or poor adhesion between tire rubber and steel belts
- Actions against service facilities and tire retailers that sell age-degraded tires susceptible to tread separation, sidewall blowouts or inflation problems
