Truck Tire Blowouts There's No Substitute for Experience 

Truck Tire Blowout Lawyer in Nashville

Were You Seriously Injured In A Truck Crash?

Keeping a vehicle in proper working order is one of the most important tasks truck drivers and trucking companies must complete – failure to do so could easily lead to a serious accident. Along with keeping an eye on the mechanical components that make up their vehicles, drivers and companies need to pay close attention to their tires to ensure that they are in proper working order.

While truck tires are designed to carry their vehicles for years, they are still susceptible to wear and tear caused by poor maintenance, temperature changes, damaged roads, etc. A blown tire can easily cause the driver to lose control, cause a catastrophic accident and that seriously injures anyone involved.

At Kinnard Law, our Nashville truck tire blowout attorneys have helped hundreds of clients secure the compensation they need to cover any medical bills or damages caused by someone else’s reckless or negligent actions. If you were seriously injured in a truck accident, we may be able to help you fight for the compensation you deserve. Contact us today to give us the details of your case.

What Causes Truck Tires To Blow?

Truck tires most often burst between May and October, and while tire companies keep most of the data about their products under wraps, they have released information about the most common causes of blowouts.

Under-Inflated Tires

Even though high temperatures cause gas to expand and increase the psi of tires, under-inflated tires are still some of the most dangerous hazards motorists face on the road. Whether the tires are under-inflated due to an overall lack of air, or whether a dramatic change in temperature pushed the psi to dangerously low levels, under-inflation causes the main components of the tires – the steel, rubber, composites, fabric, etc. – to flex more dramatically than the manufacturer ever intended. It also increases the tire’s overall surface area, which causes heat to build up faster through friction. Combined with the sun’s ray’s beating down on the dark rubber of the tires, and it’s a perfect recipe for disaster.

Over-Inflated Tires

On the opposite side of inflation, an over-inflated tire also puts extra stress on the main components of the tire. Warm weather can cause a slight increase to the tire’s psi, and if the driver keeps their tires inflated close to the upper limit of what they can handle and doesn’t frequently check the pressure, the psi could increase to dangerous levels without them realizing it.

Overloaded Vehicle

No matter how inflated or under-inflated the tires are, an overloaded vehicle increases the risk of a tire blowout. Inflating tires to the maximum acceptable limit may allow drivers to push the boundaries of how much cargo they can carry, but for the same reasons as listed above, this can easily lead to a catastrophic collision or crash.

Wear and Tear

Truck drivers travel about two or three thousand miles on the road every week, and despite the fact that truck tires are designed to be incredibly durable, the constant and excessive use takes its toll over time. If they aren’t properly taken care of, truck tires will eventually fail and burst

Poor Road Conditions

Even the greatest tires in the world can’t hold together forever if they keep getting beat up by potholes and cracked roads. It’s the responsibility of the truck driver and their company to constantly check to make sure that their tires are in proper working condition so they won’t burst on the road.
