Tire Blowout Left Driver Seriously Injured On State Route 54 In National City

California Highway Patrol responded to the scene of the accident around 2:00 a.m. and found that the sedan came to rest in the middle of the freeway.

Liability In Tire Blowout Accidents
It has been estimated that nearly 94% of car accidents are caused by human error. Drivers get intoxicated, speed or engage in any number of distractions that make accidents more likely. In a number of situations, however, problems with a car can lead to an accident. Tire tread separations, for example, often cause serious accidents.
A tread separation or tire blowout can occur for any number of different reasons. Faults in the manufacturing process can lead the tire to become unstable. A single point of defect can lead to catastrophic failure which may then cause the car to flip over or careen out of control. It’s important to have evidence preserved after a car accident. Victims may be able to file a product liability claim against the manufacturer that designed the tire.
