Deerfield Beach Bald Tires / Tire Blowout
Truck tire blowouts in Deerfield Beach or your community are terrifying. One minute, the truck in front of you is moving along normally and the next minute a truck tire blows out. In addition to the startling noise, the incident can cause the truck to careen out of control, causing a single vehicle or multiple vehicle collision right in front of you. You may have to swerve out of the way to avoid the crash. The pieces of tire that come from a truck tire blowout may end up on your windshield, obscuring your vision and increasing your chances of a truck collision. A truck tire blowout can easily lead to a serious accident, especially if the truck driver loses control of their vehicle.

According to statistics, truck tire problems cause hundreds of fatalities and thousands of collisions on roads across the country. Truck tire problems can include:
- Worn treads
- Inadequate inspection of the tires
- Tire blowouts
- Manufacturer defects
- Old tires that have been in a warehouse for a long time, disintegrating the rubber
- Overinflated or underinflated tires, which can lead to tire blowouts or trucking collisions
There are federal guidelines mandating that truck tires be inspected regularly. Those same guidelines require these inspections to be documented. The aim of this law is to ensure that truck drivers take care of their tires, which are one of the most important factors that ensure truck safety.
When truck companies are negligent in taking care of their tires or do not document tire inspections correctly, truck drivers and the companies that hired them can be held liable for any damages that result from collisions caused by tire problems. If you have been in a truck accident, one of your first questions should be about the state of the truck's tires. Working with a personal injury attorney can ensure that tire inspection logs are subpoenaed and secured as well as reviewed, to determine whether tire issues may have caused the collision. An experienced personal injury attorney will look over records and may even work with investigators to find out whether there were any signs of negligence in tire inspections.
