Tire Blowouts

Tire Blowouts

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.
