Hercules tire recall attorneys note a September 2015 Hercules tire recall involving multiple tire models. The U.S. and Canada recall is necessary as the belts and treads on the Hercules tires may separate. The Hercules tires involved in the recall were manufactured from late 2008 through 2010.

Tread Separation May Cause Loss of Vehicle Control
According to wheelcoversunlimited.com, the recall covers 10-ply Load Range E tires in the company’s All Trac line. All the recalled tires are 16 or 17 inches (40.5 or 43-centimetres) in diameter and are used mainly on commercial trucks. The Hercules Tire & Rubber Company has determined that the tires involved in the recall, if affected by the defect, can experience in-service tread separations.
Should a separation occur in your tire, you could lose control of the vehicle without warning, which could possibly result in a vehicle crash causing property damage and/or personal injury. The website notes that Hercules will notify owners of the recalled tires, and Hercules dealers will replace the affected tires, free of charge.
Injured Drivers or Passengers May Be Entitled to Compensation
Tire corporations are responsible for producing safe and reliable products. If this duty is not fulfilled, fatal accidents may occur, and the manufacturer can be held liable for injuries that may result.
Drivers or passengers who are injured in an accident and believe that tire tread separation or a Hercules recalled tire was to blame, may be entitled to compensation for damages resulting from their injuries, including:
- Medical expenses
- Loss of income or ability to work
- Pain, suffering, and mental anguish resulting from an injury
If a driver or passenger is killed as a result of defective tire, his or her family members may be able to pursue compensation for the wrongful death of their loved one. Wrongful death damages can include:
- Mental anguish, and pain and suffering from the loss of a loved one
- Loss of relationship or a loved one’s financial support
- Funeral expenses
