Miami Gardens Bald Tires / Tire Blowout

Drivers can cause serious accidents through distracted driving or negligence on the road. One way that drivers can be negligent is by ignoring their tires. When commercial truck drivers, especially, are lax in checking, inflating, and maintaining their tires, catastrophic injuries can occur in Miami Gardens and other communities.

Trucking Industry Duties

Truck drivers are expected to check their tires before every trip and to ensure that tires have proper pressure. This is because a great deal can go wrong with truck tires, including:

  • Tire blowouts
  • Loss of treads and traction, which can lead to collisions
  • Punctures and other damage caused by poorly maintained roads
  • Overinflated tires, which can lead to blowouts and overheated tires
  • Underinflated tires, which can lead to collisions

The driver is expected to take reasonable precautions to ensure that passengers can stay safe in the vehicle. The trucking company is also expected to correctly maintain trucks – including tires – in between deliveries.

What to Do If You Have Been Injured in a Truck Accident in Miami Gardens or Anywhere in Florida

Being injured in a traffic collision with a commercial truck is very different than being in a passenger car accident. One reason is because commercial trucks are protected by higher levels insurance. While this seems to offer injured parties more options for pursuing fair compensation, unfortunately, the opposite could happen. Since there are multiple liable parties in a commercial truck accident and since they tend to be protected by strong insurance companies as well as teams of attorneys, it can be harder in some instances for injured parties to get justice and compensation.

Truck companies are often larger businesses that are protected by powerful insurance policies and usually have a legal department of their own. Truck drivers may be unionized or may have access to a truck company’s legal department. Insurance companies also have access to legal teams that can help them reduce liability.

In many cases, after a commercial truck accident, the truck company and other liable parties involved will take action very quickly, sometimes asking the plaintiff to sign away some of their rights or making a lowball in order to prevent expensive litigation later on. In a commercial truck accident, it is important not to hesitate. It is important to consult with a personal injury attorney immediately in order to get legal advice about how much the case is worth and what steps need to be taken in order to preserve your rights. A personal injury attorney works for you and looks out for your best interests, ensuring that you have the best chances of securing justice and compensation.
