One Man Seriously Injured After SUV Tire Blowout Leads to Crash on Interstate 75 Sumter County

SUMTER COUNTY, Florida – Authorities released information regarding a single-vehicle accident that has left a 46-year-old Largo man seriously injured.

The accident occurred on Interstate 75 near Mile Marker 326. The man was traveling northbound when the SUV he traveled suffered a tire blowout. Following the blowout, the man lost control of the SUV and crashed into the median guardrail. According to authorities, the man was not wearing a seatbelt and was ejected from the vehicle during the accident sequence.

Information related to the condition of the man was released. Authorities stated that the man suffered serious injuries and was transported to an area hospital for treatment.

No further information was available.

The injured motorist may wish to bring a personal injury lawsuit against the manufacturer of the tire to recover the compensation needed to recover.

Tire blowout accidents are difficult because people assume that there is no one responsible for the crash but the driver. This is not necessarily true. Our firm helps innocent motorists injured in tire-related accidents across the nation recover fair compensation under the law. This compensation helps pay medical expenses and compensates them for the pain and suffering resulting from the injuries caused by the crash.

An injured motorist can bring a personal injury claim and recover compensation for their injuries when the blowout was caused by a negligent repair job or a tire defect. To determine if either of these failures apply to this accident, the tire and accident must be investigated by attorneys trained in tire defect litigation. There are only a few firms in the nation that can handle these types of cases properly.

While these are difficult cases, they provide injured motorists with an opportunity to recover the financial compensation they need to move forward. If this accident was caused by a defective tire or a negligent repair job, this man should not suffer the financial consequences of a corporate conglomerate’s mistakes on top of the debilitating injuries he has already been forced to endure.
