Liability In Tire Blowout Accidents
Tire blowouts are extremely common and cause thousands of accidents every year. According to the NCBI, “During the period from 1996 to 2002, 60,397 vehicles were involved in crashes with property damage and/or injury on a French motorway network of 2000 km. It was observed that 6.7% of these accidents involved tire blow-outs. In 87% of cases, only one vehicle was involved in the accident. Tire blow-outs occurred in 6.5% of cars that represented more than 80% of the vehicles involved in crashes.” Thee are a number of different reasons that tire blowouts occur.
- Tires can rupture when the treads are worn too low.
- A number of blowouts take place due to defects with a tire.
- Under-inflation can also increase the likelihood of a blowout.
- Cars are more likely to experience tire blowouts in extreme heat.
There may be numerous sources of liability for tire-blowout accidents. A company that did maintenance on a tire could face liability if they did not take steps to prevent a blowout. Tire manufacturers could also face liability for a crash if the blowout was due to a defect. In short, when a tire is improperly bonded the inner and outer treads can separate and cause a blowout. A car accident attorney can examine all of the facts of your case and let you know what your options are.
