Imagine this scenario: you’re driving under normal conditions. Suddenly, you experience a tire blowout. Your car swerves and yaws, losing control. You can’t steer or stop what’s about to happen…a catastrophic rollover accident. Unfortunately, this scenario is no fantasy for hundreds of drivers every year. Tire blowouts can be fatal – and they’ are due to fatal design flaws on the part of irresponsible tire manufacturers.
How do tire blowouts happen? Usually, they are due to design defects and flaws introduced by manufacturers who fail to properly test their tire designs or skimp on supplies or manufacturing conditions in favor of making a quick buck. Tire blowouts happen when the rubber tire tread separates from the metal belt contained within the tire, leading to a loss of control of the vehicle. Blowouts can happen under all sorts of driving conditions and at any time, often years after the vehicle was first purchased.
Why do tire blowouts occur? When a tire is poorly designed, it may lack the proper components to ensure safety on the road. In addition, inattention to proper manufacturing conditions can lead to blowouts when the adhesives that hold the tires together are compromised by contaminants like sawdust or moisture. Oxidation of the brass plating of the belts can cause a dangerous situation and endanger the adhesion of other tire components, including the all-essential tread.
“When a tire is poorly designed, it may lack the proper components to ensure safety on the road.”
Tire blowouts can have long-lasting consequences for drivers, who can experience severe injury and require years of expensive medical treatment. Fortunately, there is some recourse for these drivers. When defective tires cause tire blowouts, consumers can sue in civil court, seeking compensation for expenses such as medical care, rehabilitation, lost wages, even psychological pain and suffering and associated treatment.
