Tire Blowouts

Experienced Truck Accident Attorneys in Rhode Island

Tire blowouts are always scary and dangerous, but that danger is increased exponentially when it is the tire of a big-rig truck. The truck’s size and weight, danger of swerving or overturning, and the size of the tires that blowout all create a recipe for disaster on the road. If a truck accident caused you injury, you will need help from a team of lawyers that has the resources and experience required to go up against large corporations. At Decof, Barry, Mega & Quinn, P.C., we have worked for over 40 years handling these kinds of cases, recovering over $1 billion on behalf of accident victims.

Dangers of Truck Tire Blowouts

Whether on the highway or a city street, driving next to a big-rig truck can be nerve-wracking; imagine being next to or behind one if a tire blows out.

Truck tire blowouts can result in:

  • The truck driver losing control
  • The truck rolling over
  • Other drivers panicking, causing swerving, sudden braking, etc.
  • Tire debris or lost cargo in the road

In cases where a truck has had a blowout, specific factors will determine who is at-fault for the blowout. If the blowout was caused by an external factor, such as a road obstacle or pothole, the truck driver’s liability may be reduced but their reaction to the blowout will still come into play. If the tire was defective, the manufacturer may be at fault, while if a mechanic or installer failed to notice a tire defect, they may be held responsible on a third party liability claim.

Determining the reason for the blowout will be crucial to the outcome of your case, so it’s imperative that you gather as much information as possible during the time following the accident. When injuries are involved, the insurance company will often attempt to drag out investigations and reduce their liability, which makes having an aggressive, experienced lawyer from our team even more critical.
