Tire Blowouts can Cause Catastrophic Florida Crashes and Injuries
You may be taking care of your car and doing everything right – oil changes, tire rotations, proper care and maintenance at regular intervals; however, tire blowouts sometimes seemingly occur for no reason and can force you into another car or object and cause a catastrophic accident. When a South Florida car accident occurs due to a tire blowout, a vehicle may spin out of control or rollover and into other cars on the roadway. These types of accidents in Fort Lauderdale can lead to many serious injuries including:
- Broken bones
- Fractured vertebrae
- Herniated discs
- Head trauma
- Traumatic brain injury
- Spinal cord injury
Other motorists may also get injured as they have to stop suddenly, swerve around the tire chunks, or avoid hitting your vehicle. When drivers attempt to swerve around the tire tread, they can cause a side-swipe accident. If a driver stops abruptly to miss hitting the tire tread or crashed vehicles, it can lead to a rear-end accident in South Florida. When a car drives over tire tread, it has the potential to fly up and hit a motorcyclist.
Tire blowout crashes in Florida can be severe. Do not accept blame for the accident. Find out if the tire blowout was caused by a manufacturing defect, design error, or faulty parts.
