Tire blowout on Interstate 35, Webb County, Texas, leaves one injured

WEBB COUNTY, TEXAS – One man was injured after a tire blowout caused him to lose control of his truck and crash on Interstate 35.

The unidentified 58-year-old driver from Laredo was traveling in a Sterling truck when one of the truck’s tires blew out, causing the man to lose control and careen into the median, where the truck overturned.

The man was injured in the crash, but the extent of the injuries was not reported.

No further information was immediately available.

Tire blowout accidents need to be investigated to ensure the motorist recovers the compensation available under the law

Tire blowout accidents caused by tire defects and improperly repaired tires are unacceptable. When a defect in a tire leads to a serious accident, the manufacturer of the tire is liable for the injuries and harm suffered by the injured motorist.

This tire will need to be inspected by trained professionals with experience handling tire blowout cases to determine the exact cause of failure. If the tire proves defective, the injured motorist can bring a strict product liability claim against the tire manufacturer and recover the compensation needed to pay medical costs and rebuild his life.
