Tire blowouts are many things: scary, unpredictable, and sudden. They often cause damage to your car and others. For thousands of Americans every year, tire blowouts kill.
A burst tire with a rapid loss of air pressure, commonly known as a blowout, is often the result of competing causes. Too much or too little air pressure in the tire can cause the tire to wear unevenly, creating a weak spot in the tire that leads to what engineers often call catastrophic failure. Additional stressors include excessive weight on the tire, an object striking the tire at highway speeds, or a small puncture in the tire that allows the tire to “bleed” air until friction causes a secondary failure.
Obviously, many of these causes are related to a driver’s own responsibility for carefully maintaining his vehicle and driving safely. However, it’s important to realize that other contributing factors may also cause tire blowouts, such as improper and unsafe procedures by the mechanic that installed your tire or imprudent design and marketing by the tire manufacturer.
The competing reasons for a tire blowout and resulting injuries can be the basis for intense litigation. In a number of cases, a tire blowout causes a legal blowup, where a driver is left wondering whether they can successfully find a remedy for their injuries.
