Any time a tire in your vehicles deflates rapidly, you are at risk of a car tire blowout accident. The problem of blowouts causes an estimated 23,000 car accidents each year, and is responsible for about 500 traffic fatalities annually, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).
Contrary to the popular belief, a tire blowout is not always your responsibility. You may be entitled to seek compensation if the tire blowout occurred through a fault of another party. Our Dallas car tire blowout accident attorney at Law Office of Dorothy Hyde explains that depending on your particular circumstances, you may be able to seek compensation from any or several of the following parties:
A tire blowout can cause the driver to lose control of his or her vehicle, which can lead to a single-car accident (for example, a rollover accident) or a car accident involving other vehicles.
If you care about your own safety and the safety of other motorists you share the road with, then you most likely change your vehicle’s oil frequently and check the engine routinely. But many drivers forget one important element of inspection and maintenance of their vehicle: checking their tires.
However, in no way does it mean that you are at-fault for tire blowout car accidents 100 percent of the time. Our experienced car tire blowout accident attorney in Dallas explains that you may be able to recover damages if other parties were responsible for causing or contributing to the crash or failing to prevent the accident.
Although tires can deflate on their own due to being defective or worn-out, the following factors contribute to this problem and can result in a devastating car crash:
In fact, our Dallas car accident lawyer says that this type of car crashes can also be caused by tire structural problems such as tire separation caused by a manufacturing or design defect or improper maintenance.
Also, tire blowout car crashes are commonly caused by bad road conditions, which make the public or private entity that owns and maintains the road where the condition was present responsible for any accidents caused by the hazardous condition on its road.
Keep in mind that you may be able to avoid a car crash even after one of your tires blows. You need to follow the tips outlined by the National Safety Commission to minimize the risk of a car tire blowout accident:

After I was severely injured, I didn’t know what to do next. One of my colleagues recommended reaching out to Dorothy for representation.

I would recommend her services without any reservation.
