Bald Tires/Blowouts

Commercial truck drivers are required by law to check their tires before every trip and log the results of their visual inspection. Unfortunately, tire blowouts are very common. You've probably seen the strips of rubber along highways and freeways across Miami, indicating that a truck tire has blown out. If you have ever followed behind the truck when a tire has blown out, you have likely felt the fear that happens when a truck swerves due to tire failure and pieces of rubber come flying at your vehicle as the tire rips apart. Unfortunately, tire failures and blowouts cause serious accidents and serious injuries across Miami each year. In many cases, these accidents are preventable.

If you have been injured in a truck accident in Miami caused by a tire blowout or tire problems, you have a legal right to seek compensation from any liable parties in the incidents. In order to seek fair compensation, you will generally have to work with a personal injury attorney in Miami who is familiar with local laws as well as local resources that can help you.

Why Do Tire Blowouts Occur?

While truck accidents caused by tire blowouts are quite common in Miami, these types of traffic accidents are actually very preventable. Tire blowouts are caused by a number of factors:

  • Poor maintenance
  • Incorrect inspection by truck drivers
  • Allowing the tires to lose treat and become "bald," increasing the chances of a blowout
  • Overloading the truck and exceeding safe weight limits
  • Poor road conditions
  • Tire manufacturer defects
  • Tires that have been stored too long without being used
  • Excessive heat
Have You Been in a Truck Accident in Miami?

Due to the high temperatures in Miami, tire blowouts are even more likely on the city's roads. The rubber used in tires is susceptible to heat, and this can mean that tires are more likely to fail in Miami. In many cases, however, these types of problems and accidents can be prevented with correct maintenance and inspection.

If you have been injured in a truck accident in Miami that you feel was caused by someone's negligence, contact the Flaxman Law Group to discuss your case and to get a free case evaluation. You may be entitled to more compensation than you realize and the total costs of your injuries may end up costing more than you have been led to believe. Allow the legal staff at the Flaxman Law Group legal team to explain your options and the possible steps you can take to secure fair compensation for you and your family.
