A car and all its parts are designed and manufactured to keep you safe. Although you know anything can happen when you’re on the road, the last thing you expect when you climb in your vehicle is a tire blowout accident. Accidents that happen as the result of a tire blowout often occur without warning and cause serious injury or even death. If you’re suffering as the result of a tire blowout, you should seek the advice of a car accident lawyer as soon as possible.
In Houston, Sutliff & Stout Injury and Accident Law Firm is here for victims of tire blowouts and all types of car accidents. We firmly believe that everyone is entitled to competent legal consultation and will fight for you and your claim every step of the way.
Causes of Tire Blowout Accidents in Houston
There are many reasons tire blowouts occur. Common causes of tire blowout accidents in Houston include:
- Tire design defects
- Manufacturer error
- Poor tire installation
- Defective tire materials
- …and more
When you make the investment to put new tires on your vehicle, you should be able to trust that they are in drivable condition. Defective tires can cause accidents. If you have experienced a defective tire, it is important to call a knowledgeable attorney as soon as possible.
When a tire blows out, it’s very difficult to control the vehicle. In many situations, the vehicle rolls over, veers into another lane of traffic, or spins out of control. Such accidents often result in catastrophic injuries that are difficult to recover from. Common injuries that occur due to tire blowout accidents include:
- Spinal cord injuries
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Broken bones
- Lacerations, bruises
- Accidental amputation
- Loss of sight
- Blunt force trauma
- …and more
In a serious accident, medical help will arrive on the scene. If the injuries of your accident were not serious or life-threatening, you should still seek medical attention as soon as possible. Injuries are known to surface in the days and weeks immediately following a car accident. No matter the severity of your injury, you might still be entitled to compensation.
If your injuries are the result of a manufacturer defect, the company that manufactured the tire is responsible for the damages. Although companies commonly place recalls on defective tires, not all defective tires are recalled. When you work with Sutliff & Stout, we’ll fight to win you fair compensation for:
- Medical bills
- Lost wages
- Rehabilitation costs
- Medical equipment
- Future loss of wages
- Loss of earning potential
- Pain and suffering
- …and more
By taking action against the tire company, you can help save other people’s lives. Many recalls are the result of tire blowout accident claims. The sooner you consult an attorney about your accident, the more likely you are to win a settlement and keep others out of harm’s way.
