Hallandale Beach Bald Tires / Tire Blowout

Tire blowouts are one of the most terrifying things to experience on Hallandale Beach and Florida roads. Often caused by overinflated, underinflated, or bald tires, tire blowouts occur when the tire actually disintegrates or falls apart during transport. When this happens, the truck driver can easily lose control of the vehicle, careening into other traffic or even rolling over. These types of accidents are likely to cause serious damages as well as serious injuries and even fatalities.

Why Does Tire Failure Happen in Hallandale Beach and Florida?

There are federal laws in place to prevent tire blowouts and other types of big rig and tractor trailer accidents. Unfortunately, there are some trucking companies that allow bald tires on their trucks and do not perform the inspections required by federal guidelines. These negligent companies risk the lives of everyone on the road.

When tires are allowed to become bald or lose their tread, for example, it is harder for truck drivers to control their vehicles, especially in slippery conditions. Bald tires can also be more vulnerable to sharp debris on the road and to over inflation, which can lead to tire blowouts.

Tire blowouts occur when the tires fail entirely. The long strips of rubber that you see on the sides of roads are often caused by this type of tire failure. During tire blowouts, these strips of rubber can go flying onto the road and even into the windshield of oncoming cars. Tire blowouts are extremely dangerous because they can also cause truck drivers to lose control of their vehicles. In some cases, tire blowouts lead to rollovers or multiple vehicle collisions. Tire blowouts can easily cause secondary accidents. Sometimes, drivers following a truck will panic and to swerve during a tire blowout, which can lead to broadside collisions and other accidents.

Preventing Tire Blowouts

To prevent these types of disasters, it is expected that truck drivers carefully inspect their tires before each trip, as requested by federal guidelines. It is also expected that truck drivers keep a log of tire inspections performed. When truck drivers are negligent in doing this and when truck companies are negligent in maintaining tires on their fleets, victims who have been injured in resulting car collisions may have a legal claim against these negligent parties.
