Understanding & Proving Tire Blowouts

With Knowledgeable Truck Accident Lawyers in Salt Lake City

Tire blowouts are a common cause of truck accidents. Given the weight of semi-trucks, passenger vans, and other large commercial vehicles, the tires for such vehicles must be capable of withstanding tremendous pressure. Tire blowouts may be the result of manufacturer defects or negligence on the part of a trucker or trucking company. The manufacturer is responsible for providing a safe product.

The truck driver and truck company are responsible for:

  • The proper maintenance of their vehicle
  • The maintenance of proper tire pressure
  • The replacement of tires with known dangers

Furthermore, truckers and truck companies have a responsibility to properly load cargo onto a truck to avoid overloading that may put undue pressure on the vehicle’s tires. Our Salt Lake City truck accident attorney’s goal is to always obtain maximum compensation for our clients to ensure the highest quality of life.

Compensation for Tire Blowout Accidents

Depending on the facts of your case, you may be able to pursue compensation through a personal injury claim, product liability claim, or both. A product liability claim may form the basis for recovery if the tire blowout was caused by manufacturer negligence.

If the accident was caused by driver error or trucking company error, you may pursue compensation through a personal injury claim. Since multiple factors may have contributed to the cause of the accident, you may have a basis to pursue compensation through both a personal injury and product liability claim. Our attorneys have extensive experience in tire blowout claims and may provide the experienced representation you require.
