What Causes Tractor Trailer Tire Blowouts?
Heat waves around the country are bad news for truckers. High temperatures can increase the risk of tire blowouts.
Some common causes of tire blowouts are:
- Underinflated tires flex more, causing more of the tire’s surface area to have contact with the road. Friction causes heat to build up, and the tire can blow.
- Overinflated tires wear unevenly, which can cause weak spots that lead to blowouts.
- Poor maintenance may result in the wrong class of tires being installed, improper inflation, or failure to replace worn tires.
- Defective tires with design or manufacturing flaws can fail due to tread or belt separation, sidewall, or bead failure.
Some defective product issues may be hard to separate from maintenance issues. Or the cause of the tire blowout truck crash may be a combination of factors. We know what to look for, and we have access to trusted experts like accident reconstructionists, engineers, and safety experts who can help us sort out the details.
Who’s Responsible for a Tractor Trailer Tire Blowout Crash?
Any party who contributed to the tractor-trailer accident could be held financially liable for injuries or property damage caused by the crash.
That’s why it’s so important to identify all potentially responsible parties, which could include:
- Tire manufacturer
- Tire installation shop
- Fleet maintenance company
- Trucking company
- Truck driver
- Government entity
What if the tire was overinflated by the shop, but the truck driver was speeding? You could have multiple parties that need to be held accountable. Our Gainesville truck accident attorneys will leave no stone unturned when investigating the cause of your wreck.
