Tire Blowouts and Defects
A tired blowout can be extremely dangerous, especially when driving at high speeds or in areas heavily congested with traffic. A blowout can make you to lose control of your car and send you careening into medians or oncoming traffic, causing roll-overs, collisions, and serious injury. Tire blowouts can be caused by a variety of factors, but they all have the same effect: putting you, your passengers, and other drivers at risk for bodily harm and property damage.
Even if you take special care to avoid tire blowouts, issues like manufacturing defects and poorly maintained roads can put even the most careful driver at risk. If your blowout is caused by another party’s negligence, you may want to consider filing a lawsuit seeking compensation from the liable individual or group.
