Tyler Truck Accident Lawyer
Commercial trucks require constant maintenance, as per instructed in federal trucking regulations established by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA). Part of any good inspection is checking tire pressure, tread depth, and stability. When a trucker is in a hurry or their employer wants to get a shipment on the highways as soon as possible, tire inspections are sometimes ignored. Not only is this a bad business practice but it also increases the chances of a hazardous tire blowout.
Big semis are difficult enough to control on a good day. The sheer size of the vehicle and its weight means handling is sluggish and braking demands much more clear space than the average automobile. If a tire blowout occurs while the truck rolls down the road, it is highly likely that the trucker will be unable to compensate for the sudden loss of steering and cause a major truck accident.
Were you or someone you know injured in a truck accident caused by a tire blow out? You might be entitled to financial compensation!

Injuries Caused by Tire Blowouts
If a huge 18-wheeler careens out of control and into other vehicles, the damage is sure to be extensive. Even safe, responsible drivers who always buckle up could find themselves in a precarious situation and suffering severe injury. Tire blowouts also pose a unique threat to other drivers, though, as large chunks of the tire itself can eject away from the truck at high velocities, flying into traffic.
