Some Common Causes of Tire Blowouts
Good quality, well-maintained tires can be one of the most critical components of your automotive safety. Tires are your vehicle’s only means of contacting the ground it drives on. Tire blowouts can lead to accidents which are extremely dangerous, expensive, or even fatal. Also, it is an unfortunate truth that many tires fall below safety standards in terms of quality of production. Tire blowouts are, unfortunately, very common.
If you or a loved one has suffered property damage or injury in a car accident due to defective tires, you may be entitled to seek financial compensation from the tire manufacturer. An experienced car accident lawyer of Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. can help you to better understand your legal rights and options. Contact us at 800-242-2874 today to learn more.
Frequent Tire Defects
Tire blowouts are not always caused by improper tire maintenance or by running over an object while driving. Sometimes they are caused by defective manufacturing or design, in which case you may be able to pursue legal action. Some common defects include:
- Inadequate tire support cables
- Weak or improperly mixed rubber, which leaves vulnerable spots in a tire
- Insufficient adhesion of tread to tread, resulting in separation
- Weak sidewalls
If a tire blowout has been the fault of a manufacturer, you should not be left to suffer alone with injuries or the financial burden of repairing your vehicle after an accident.
A tire blowout can be a traumatic incident, often incurring significant medical bills and repair costs. If you have suffered a tire blowout due to a faulty or defective tire, contact the Madison tire blowout attorneys of Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. by calling 800-242-2874.
