Tire Blowouts

Were You Inured In A Car Crash Because of Defective Tires?

According to the United States Department of Transportation's National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) about 11,000 crashes happen each year due to tire blowouts. While safety improvements like the inclusion of tire pressure monitoring systems (TPMS) have cut down on the number of blowouts by warning drivers when their tires are underinflated, the primary cause of blowouts, no safety measure can completely protect drivers from manufacturing errors or negligence.

If you were injured in a car crash, the Dallas car accident lawyers at Aldous \ Walker LLP are ready to help. While we have decades of experience and have tried hundreds of cases in front of a jury, the most important thing we bring to our clients is compassionate, dedicated legal counsel. Dealing with a serious injury can put an incredible amount of stress on both the injured victim and the loved ones working to care for them in this trying time, and we strive to take some of that burden off your shoulders by securing you both the compensation and peace of mind that you need.

How Do Tire Blowouts Happen?

We count on our vehicles to transport us everywhere from the supermarket to the mall to school. The United States Department of Transportation Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) reported that the average American drives more than 13,000 miles every single year – that’s enough driving to get from Dallas to Buenos Aires and back, with a few hundred miles leftover. Even though the mechanical components may be designed to handle this much stress, the rubber tires they rely on aren’t quite as resilient.

As stated before, underinflation is the most common cause of tire blowouts, though that’s not the only issue an underinflated tire could cause. Underinflated tires have a negative effect on how your car handles, reduces its ability to grip the road, and reduces the responsiveness of your brakes. While age may increase the chances that you will face this issue, a manufacturer defect could also be to blame for the problem. Most tires are built to last for about 10 years, but it’s the responsibility of both the manufacturer and the retailer to provide their customers with accurate information, and immediately address any defects that could endanger lives.
