The Federal National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) estimates that at least 8,000 car accidents each and every year are caused by tire blowouts. The term “tire blowout” refers to the situation which happens when a tire loses air explosively and rapidly. This results in a serious loss of control over any vehicle. A tire can deflate quickly as it loses air. This places a vehicle at major risk for a rollover accident. If a vehicle is driven with tire containing a defect, this may seriously impact the driver's ability to safely maneuver any vehicle. This increased risk may well lead to a multi or single vehicle accident that can leave passengers, drivers and nearby bicyclists or pedestrians seriously injured.

Injured in a Car Crash Caused by a Tire Blowout?

You may well be able to make a successful product liability claim against the product’s manufacturer. Depending on the facts of your specific situation, the retailer or distributor may have liability also. By reviewing all the legal options with an experienced Texas tire defect attorney, you can make the determination of your best course of claims action to have your best chance at recovering the maximum jury award or settlement possible under the law. Taking into consideration that the compensation you get will be needed to cover lost wages, outstanding medical bills and your various other damages, expenses and losses you have suffered, getting the maximum possible recovery can be crucial to your future.

Millions of the tires sold in the past decade have been subject to recalls in the United States. All of these tire manufacturers are some of the United States’ most reputable companies. Most of these recalls have had links to defective designs which caused treads to separate. This is a major good reason for tires to blow out. Vehicle tires in the United States are manufactured when several layers or plies integrated into one surface. When the type of design which is supposed to make these layers stick together is defective, it can cause the tire tread to separate from the rest of the body of the tire while your vehicle is actually running. This “tread separation” can also result from using weak adhesives to hold the plies together. Tires which get manufactured in a facility which is in and of itself unsafe can be exposed to excess moisture during their production process. This can cause treads to adhere to one another improperly.

SUVs are among the most popular personal vehicles on our roads today. Despite this, the tires on SUVs have also suffered from an increased rate of rollover accidents. One reason for this is that SUV designs leave it a high center of gravity and a narrow, long body. When a tire blows out on an SUV, such vehicles are more likely to lose driver control and turn over than a regular passenger car.
