Tire failure crashes unfortunately common in Florida

Sadly, tire failure crashes occur relatively frequently in Florida due to the effects of the heat on rubber treads and the sheer volume of traffic that our state’s roads carry. While a tire failure crash may be the result of an error or defect made by the tire manufacturer, or by a mechanic who installed the tire improperly, or other party, it is important for drivers to take the necessary precautions to avoid these tragedies on the road. As the old saying goes, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure—this is especially true when applied to car accidents, as they often result in severe injuries or fatalities.

In an effort to avoid a tire failure accident, you should regularly inspect your tires for early warning signs of failure or defects such as cracking or cuts, uneven tread wear, worn tread, blisters, bulges or uneven proportions in the tire’s shape, and excessive vibration while driving. If you believe you may have any of the above, you should have your vehicle professionally serviced immediately.

Under-inflation is another possible cause of tire failure crashes. If a tire does not have enough air in it, then the sidewall may flex excessively, causing heat to build up within the tire and making a blowout or tread separation all the more likely. Tires tend to shed air through the rubber as it hits the road, sometimes so slowly that it’s completely unnoticeable. The instance of under-inflation posing a threat to driver safety rises if extreme temperatures are an issue, as they often are in Florida (especially during the summertime).

Over-inflation is another problem that can cause issues as well which are further exacerbated by high temperatures. The tread on the tire can wear unevenly, increasing the risk of loss of control. Take your car in to a reputable and experienced service center for regular maintenance and monitor your tire pressure on a routine basis to minimize exposing yourself and your passengers to these risks.

In the event that you or someone you love is seriously injured or killed in a tire failure crash, contact a personal injury attorney who specializes in handling tire failure lawsuits to assess your case. While nothing can replace your loved one or your health, you may be able to gain recovery for medical bills, pain and suffering, and replace income from a deceased family member.

At the Law Offices of Stephen K. Miller, we accept personal injury and wrongful death lawsuits on a contingency fee basis, meaning you would owe us neither legal fees nor costs unless we recover money damage for you—thus, there is no up front cost to you for us to handle the case. In addition to personal injury, medical malpractice, and wrongful death cases, our firm also handles lawsuits involving divorce, custody battles, domestic violence injunctions, will and probate matters, and criminal defense cases. Our firm has offices in Gainesville, Ocala, Chiefland, Lake City, Palatka, Jacksonville, Daytona, Palm Coast, St. Augustine, Orlando, Kissimmee, Lake Mary, and Melbourne.
