This CLE course will deliver personal injury trial lawyers the necessary knowledge and tools to prevail for their clients on these common and tragic claims for injury and death.

- Multipiece rim failures
- Mismatch tire rim failures
- Sidewall zipper failures
- Tread belt separations
- Collecting and preserving physical evidence
- Analysis of physical evidence
- Internal company documents
