Phoenix Tire Blowout Lawyer
Were You Seriously Injured In A Car Crash?
Approximately 11,000 car crashes in the United States are caused by tire blowouts every year according to the U.S. Department of Transportation's National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). Technological improvements to safety systems, like the addition of tire pressure monitoring systems (TPMS), provide drivers with warning lights and sounds when their tires are underinflated. While these improvements have cut down on the number of tire blowouts, there is still no safety measure in place that can protect other drivers from negligent behavior or manufacturing errors.

What Causes Tires To Burst?
According to the U.S. Department of Transportation Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), the average American drives more than 13,000 miles per year, which is enough distance to get you from Phoenix to Anchorage, AK and back – twice. Our vehicles are designed to take this much stress and more as a whole, but that doesn’t mean each individual component will hold up over time.
Underinflation is the most common factor that can lead to a tire blowout, but an underinflated tire could also lead to a number of other potentially serious issues. An underinflated tire can negatively affect a vehicle’s braking ability, reduce its ability to grip the road, cause its handling to become less responsive, and more. Aging and worn down tires are more likely to become and remain underinflated, but the issue could also be a manufacturing one. The vast majority of tires are designed to last for 10 years before they need to be replaced, and it’s the responsibility of both the retailer and manufacturer to provide customers with any update regarding the safety of their products, and issue a recall as soon as possible if the need arises.
