Car Accidents Caused by Defective Tires and Tire Blowouts

Car accidents can be caused by many different factors, including driver negligence and others. In some cases, accidents result from defective tires when a tire blowout occurs and causes the driver to lose control of the vehicle he or she is driving.

Each year, hundreds of people are killed in the U.S. because of defective or worn tires. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reports that 738 people were killed in car accidents caused by tire problems in 2017 alone.

Tire safety is something that should not be overlooked. Unfortunately, many drivers fail to regularly check their tires, which could result in blowouts and accidents. When a driver or vehicle owner causes an accident because of worn tires that fail, the driver or owner can be found liable for the losses caused to others injured in the resulting collision. The injuries and property damage caused by driving with unsafe tires can be extensive.

There have also been numerous instances involving unsafe or defective tires that have defects even when the tires are new. Some of these defects have led to massive recalls in the past following accidents.

If you have sustained serious injuries in an accident caused by bad tires, you should talk to an experienced attorney at Hutzler Law to learn about the rights that you might have.
