Midland Car Accident Attorney
One of the most common and dangerous
defective auto parts are tires, which can blowout without warning and cause the driver to careen
off the road or into oncoming traffic. Every year the National Transportation
Safety Board (NTSB) looks into thousands of automobile collisions to determine
the root of their causes. According to their statistics, more than 30,000
car accidents and 500 motorist fatalities are caused in America every year due to tire
blowouts or other tire-related issues.
If you were hurt in a car accident and you believe a tire blowout was the
cause, know that you are not alone, and that you have legal options to
seek compensation. At Dean Law Firm, our Midland personal injury lawyer
can investigate your claims, determine where liability lies, and take
the reins on your lawsuit. This is what we have been doing for more than
20 years, and we would be happy to do the same for you.

How Dangerous Are Tire Blowouts?
The faster you are traveling when your tire bursts, the more danger you
are in. As the weight in your vehicle is suddenly shifted towards the
defective tire and the hubcap grinds against the asphalt, it can become
entirely impossible for you to safely control your vehicle and avoid a
collision. Even at relatively low speeds, the unexpected and startling
nature of a tire blowout may cause a driver to overcorrect and get into
a car accident.

Preparing Your Tire Blowout Case
Tire manufacturers may contend that your car accident and tire blowout
were caused by your own neglect or perhaps hazardous roadway conditions.
In order to strengthen your case, attempt to identify and record each
of your tires’ serial numbers and register them with the manufacturer
– ideally this will have been done before your car accident. You
should be able to find the serial or identification code on the inside
of the tire’s sidewall, and it will always begin with “DOT”.
If it is determined that the registered serial number is linked to a batch
of tires known to have defects, the strength of your case will dramatically
increase. Be sure you are also doing all you can to prepare for lawsuit
by teaming up with a Midland-Odessa car accident lawyer from our firm.
While you rest and recover, we will handle all the varied aspects of your case.
