Protect yourself against dangerous tire blowout accidents
Tire blowouts are extremely dangerous and can have numerous causes. Many tire blowout accidents are the result of improper maintenance on the part of the other driver. Underinflated tires, exposure to high temperatures, overused brake pads, or neglecting to check pressure and alignment regularly are all common contributors to tire blowouts. Of course, there are other circumstances that can cause a tire blowout accident. Potholes, cuts or tears in the tire, small punctures — anything that compromises the integrity of the tire — can lead to an accident.
If you’ve been hurt as a result of a tire blowout accident, contact The Moyles Law Firm immediately. Our experienced personal injury attorney can build a case on your behalf. We have a deep and nuanced understanding of how to collect evidence, witness testimony, scientific data and police reports to make sure your rights are defended. But you must act quickly — skid marks don’t last forever and there’s a statute of limitations on auto accident cases. This means if you don’t pursue your damages during a certain timeframe, you’ll forfeit your right to them forever.
Types of injuries you could sustain in a tire blowout accident
Tire blowout accidents can occur anywhere and at any time. If you are on the highway and driving at speeds in excess of 50 miles per hour, a tire blowout could cause a devastating crash. If however, you are driving slowly on a local road, a tire blowout may only cause shock and confusion.
Below are some of the injuries you could suffer in a tire blowout accident:
- Neck injuries: A tire blowout accident could cause you to swerve and hit another vehicle or a fixed object. The moment the tire bursts, your body may tense up, causing you to sustain a neck injury if your vehicle stops suddenly.
- Catastrophic injuries: Tire blowout accidents can cause catastrophic injuries because you could lose control of your vehicle and crash into other drivers, or another driver having a blowout can crash into you.
- Back injuries: Since a tire blowout accident occurs suddenly and without warning, back injuries are common.
- Lacerations: Lacerations to your face, hands and torso may occur if a tire blowout accident causes a vehicle to roll over or collide with other vehicles or a fixed object.
