A trial lawyer who handles major injury cases recently called me to consult on the motorcycle aspects of a motorcycle accident caused by a tire failure. The failed tire was a Michelin Pilot 2CT.

Michelin has a recall on this tire, but claims that they have had no injury-casing failures. This claim seems doubtful, given that this is not the first inquiry I have had regarding an injury claim from the failure of this type of tire.

Michelin says they have no incidents of failure, and no injuries. The recall is being done in conjunction with NHTSA, so I would assume if this is causing injuries, that NHTSA will be contacted by some of the injured riders.

Michelin has been an innovative tire company and has produced many excellent tires. Hopefully, I am just being exposed to the rare case in which the tire failed, causing a crash. On the other hand, I would certainly be interested in other cases of the tire failure causing an injury.
