Hollywood Bald Tires / Tire Blowout

If you have driven through the streets of Hollywood and surrounding communities, you have likely seen the pieces of rubber littering the streets on some days. These pieces of black rubber are caused by tire blowouts, which often occur when excess pressure is placed on tires or tires are allowed to get to worn. Unfortunately, in addition to causing litter and debris, tire blowouts can cause serious accidents and even fatal crashes.

If you've been seriously injured in a truck accident caused by a tire blowout or other tire problem, contact Flaxman Law Group for a free, no obligation case evaluation. In many cases, tire blowouts and other tire issues are completely preventable and this means that you may have a legal claim if you have been seriously injured.

Why do Tire Blowouts Happen in Hollywood?

There are many reasons why tire blowouts occur:

  • Tires are allowed to get bald or worn down, thinning the material and allowing a blowout to occur
  • Trucks are overloaded with cargo or cargo is not correctly distributed, putting extra pressure on some or all of the tires
  • High heat, caused by high temperatures or overloaded cargo can cause tires to fail
  • Older tires may be used on the truck, and in older tires (even unused ones) the rubber may become compromised
  • Incorrect maintenance
  • Truck drivers may fail to test tires to see whether they are worn, bald, or otherwise in danger of a blowout
  • Drivers may speed excessively, placing extra pressure on tires
  • Debris on the road can puncture tires
  • Incorrect braking technique can place extra pressure on tires and can cause tires to wear down more quickly
  • Tires may have manufacturing or design flaws
  • Tires may be retreaded or recycled incorrectly, increasing the likelihood of the tire blowouts
