What causes tire blowouts?

Tire tread separation accounts for many tire blowout accidents where ineffective adhesion causes the tread to pull away. No matter how the blowout was caused, a tire tread separation can result in property damage and serious injuries requiring intensive medical attention.

Errors during the bonding process which can lead to treat separation include:

  • Using bonding ingredients which are outdated
  • Sub-optimal temperatures
  • Materials contaminated by rust, grease, sawdust, oxidation, moisture, or other contaminate
  • Improperly sized parts

Tire manufacturers have been aware of the problems caused by tire tread separation for many years yet most have done nothing to correct these problems.

Proving Liability & Upholding Your Rights

A tire blowout usually causes total loss of control of the vehicle which can often lead to accidents. If the tire manufacturer can be found to be negligent in the making of the tire, they can be held legally responsible for your injuries. This can leave them liable for a personal injury suit to recover the compensation to cover any medical expenses related to your tire blowout accident such as hospital bills, property damage, and even compensation for your pain and suffering.
