James Carol Injured When His 2007 Ford F-250 Suffered a Tire Blowout on Farm to Market Road 1005 in Tyler County, Texas

Tyler County, Texas — One man was injured when his Ford F-250  truck experienced a tire blowout. The incident happened on Farm to Market Road 1005 near County Road 317.

According to reports, the 2007 Ford F-250 pickup’s front passenger side tire had a blowout, causing the truck to veer off the highway, hit a tree, and overturn onto its side.

The driver, James Carol, Jr., was transported to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

Manufacturers and repair shops must repair and produce safe tires.

Many people assume when a tire fails, the driver of the vehicle messed up. This is not true. Many tires fail for reasons completely outside the control of the driver. More often than people realize, tires fail because the manufacturer produced a bad tire or a repair shop installed or repaired a tire improperly. When this happens, the company responsible for the blowout is liable for the injuries caused by the tire failure.

A manufacturing defect happens when a product has a weakness when it leaves the manufacturer. Defective tires are dangerous because no one knows they are defective until after they blow out. Defective tires have caused many serious injuries and deaths throughout the years. When this happens, the manufacturer is responsible for the injuries caused by the tire failing.

A tire failure caused by a poor repair job happens when a repair shop repairs a tire that should not be repaired or repairs a tire improperly. Tires must be repaired according to industry guidelines. Tires that are beyond repair must be disposed of. However, tire shops across the country ignore these rules to make money. A tire that is improperly repaired is more likely to blow out and cause a serious accident. The tire shop that completed a bad repair should be held liable when this happens.

Trained professionals can inspect the tire and determine exactly why it failed and provide the injured the answers he deserves.  If the tire failed due to a defect or a poor repair job, the companies may be responsible for the injuries suffered in this crash.
