Tire Blowouts and Personal Injuries
There are many different types of accidents that can occur with tires and wheels that have the potential to cause significant injuries to their victims. These accidents include:
- Mismatched tires, where wheels and tires do not fit properly
- Split rim wheel explosions
- Tire cuts or punctures
- Underinflated tires
- Tire defects
- Vehicle weight
Tire and wheel blowouts can also occur in rollovers and other accidents and can cause significant harm to the drivers and passengers. Many times, these accidents are caused by defects in the original design or manufacturing of the wheel and/or tire. In these cases, it is appropriate to pursue compensation from the manufacturers who sold these defective products to consumers.
