Personal Injury Claims & Tire Blowouts: What You Need to Know, Dothan, Alabama

Every driver has a responsibility to look after the safety of everyone else on the road, which includes following traffic laws and making sure your vehicle is well-maintained. One extremely common hazard is a blown-out tire, which can make avoiding an accident almost impossible at high speeds. If you or a loved one has suffered an injury in an accident caused by a vehicle defect, you may be eligible to file a personal injury claim for damages.

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, tire problems may contribute to 9% of the accidents on the roads every year, with a significant portion of those directly related to tire blowouts. Many of these flat tires are directly related to improper inflation, poor tread depth, and other factors which a more responsible, experienced driver should have noticed and taken care of. Unfortunately, their neglect in this area can have a significant impact on your life.
