How do tire blowouts occur?
Predicting a tire blowout is all but impossible. In many cases, tires fail at high speeds, or while under high stress.
Tire blow out accidents can be caused by a wide range of factors, including:
- Tire pressure issues: Tires that are over-inflated or under-inflated are at risk of a blow out. Maintaining the proper tire pressure mandated by the manufacturer is vital to the safe operation of any vehicle. In these cases, the vehicle owner may be held liable for losses resulting from an accident.
- Poor maintenance: Vehicle owners who fail to replace tires at the proper time may be driving with unsafe tires. The older a tire becomes, the weaker it becomes. The likelihood of a tire blowout increases as tires age and weaken. Maintenance is the responsibility of the vehicle owner, meaning that the owner may be liable for damages.
- Manufacturer defects: Companies that manufacture tires are held to strict safety regulations; the tires they produce and market must meet these requirements. If a tire is defective from the factory, and gets past quality control, the chances of a blow out increase dramatically. If the tire can be proven to be defective, the manufacturer holds liability for all losses resulting from a blow out crash.
Whatever the cause, tire blowouts are extremely dangerous events that often lead to serious accidents.
We won’t back down from tire manufacturers
Victims who have suffered injuries because of a defective tire often face an uphill battle during the pursuit of compensation. In many cases, tire manufacturers employ large legal teams to protect against personal injury claims. These legal teams employ high-pressure tactics to attempt to persuade victims into dropping a claim or settling for far less compensation than they deserve.
Our staff has handled many cases involving high-powered legal teams, and has come away with favorable resolutions for many clients. Our knowledge of the law and our extensive negotiation and litigation skills allow us to take on even the most complicated cases under the most challenging conditions. Throughout your legal proceedings, we fight to recover the just compensation you are entitled to, and never advise you to accept an inadequate settlement offer or back down from a fight.
