Houston Tire Blowout Accident Lawyer

Tire blowouts are sudden. One minute you are traveling down the highway, the next you hear a loud pop as your vehicle careens wildly out of control. With just split seconds to react, many drivers slam on their brakes and try to compensate for their vehicle’s uncontrollable maneuvering. But this is the wrong reaction that can make an already dangerous situation worse and result in a car or truck accident.

Blow out tire accidentTire blowouts happen for a variety of reasons, such as:

Some causes – such as weather or running over a sharp object that causes immediate damage – are uncontrollable. But others, such as the weight of the vehicle, underinflated tires, or failure to repair or replace a tire following impact, are completely under the driver’s control. Failure to properly maintain tires is negligence and can result in the driver being held financially liable for any injuries his negligence caused.

Houston Tire Blowout Accidents

Houston is the hub of trucking activity in Texas, and with the legal weight limit for 18-wheelers set at 80,000 pounds – more if the truck is granted overweight or oversize permits – a tire blowout that results in a crash can cause serious injuries. Traumatic brain injury, a fractured or broken neck, and even death can result if you are involved in a truck accident.

At Baumgartner Law Firm, we understand the negative physical, financial and emotional impact that results when you or a loved one is seriously injured or killed in a Houston truck accident. Injuries sustained in a tire blowout accident can have long-lasting effects, such as:

Our Houston truck accident lawyers have handled hundreds of cases involving injuries sustained in truck accidents caused by tire blowouts. If the tire blowout was caused by an overloaded truck, improper tire inflation, or if the tire had worn tires, the driver and/or the trucking company may be liable for damages on the theory of negligence. Blown tires on a big rig often lead to a jackknife truck accident.

Our experienced attorneys will thoroughly examine all evidence, including the scene of the accident, police reports, crash expert reports, and vehicle maintenance records, to determine if the tire blowout was the result of negligence on the part of the truck driver or the trucking company.
