Coral Gables Bald Tires / Tire Blowout

Bald tires are often preventable. In many cases, bald tires can be prevented by checking the state of tires before heading out on trips. Proper maintenance and regularly scheduled inspections can ensure that truck are in great shape and still have good treads. When drivers and truck carriers fail to take these simple precautions, tires may get worn down and can cause an accident or can cause a tire blowout that leads to debris on the road or a traffic crash in Coral Gables or your community.

If you have been injured as a result of a tire blowout or due to a truck that had worn tires, you may have a legal claim. In many cases, these incidents are preventable with adequate care and maintenance.

Bald Tires Cause Truck Crashes in Coral Gables and Florida

Bald tires pose a number of risks:

  • They can lead to tire blowouts
  • They can make it harder for a truck to brake in time
  • They can cause trucks to roll on steep inclines or hills
  • They can cause trucks to slip or rollover because the treads do not grip the road correctly
  • They can cause rear end shunt accidents because trucks take longer to come to a stop
  • Serious injuries can result from trucking collisions and tire blowouts. Common injuries resulting from these types of crashes include:
  • Amputation
  • Spinal cord and back injuries
  • Paralysis
  • Head injuries
  • Broken bones
  • Internal injuries
  • Whiplash
  • Soft tissue injuries

Seeking insurance money after a collision can help you pay for some of these costs, but in some cases insurance companies will undervalue a claim or may refuse to pay for some expenses, alleging that you do not qualify for the coverage. It is important to seek fair compensation so that you are reimbursed for the many expenses you may face due to your injury. Speaking to a personal injury attorney is one way to protect yourself. A personal injury attorney can act right away to protect your rights and can help you pursue any avenues open to you.

Do You Need Legal Help After a Roadway Collision?

The attorneys at Flaxman Law Group often see situations where someone will accept a settlement or money from an insurance company for very little and then find out that they do require expensive treatment or major surgery. Once this happens, the plaintiff has likely signed away some or all of their rights and if their medical costs and other costs exceed their insurance money, they may have few options. Don't let this happen to you and do not allow yourself to sign your rights away.
