Why Tire Blowouts Happen in South Miami and Florida

Federal regulations require truck drivers and motor carriers to check tires regularly before each trip and maintain an inspection log of all visual inspections of tires. These laws are intended to help protect other drivers and other users of the road in Florida and across the United States. Unfortunately, some truck drivers and motor carriers are negligent in checking tires, and this results in serious accidents each year. There many reasons why federal guidelines regarding tires are not followed:

  • Inadvertent mistakes
  • Distracted driving or fatigued driving may make the driver forget about checking tires
  • Motor carriers may try to cut costs by avoiding needed tire maintenance
  • Truck drivers may be in a hurry due to tight deadlines and may neglect to check tires
  • Truck drivers may be undertrained and may not know how to check tires for possible flaws and issues

There is no excuse for putting your life – and the lives of your family – at risk. If a truck carrier or truck driver have been negligent and this negligence has led to your injuries, you may have legal options that you can pursue.
