Dallas Tire Blowout Accident Attorneys

Who Is Liable for Tire Blowout Accidents in Dallas?

Every day, people across Dallas are involved in serious car accidents that cause catastrophic injuries. In fact, Dallas has the second-highest traffic fatality rate in the U.S. While many of these accidents are caused by driver error, some are caused by factors outside the driver’s control, such as a sudden tire failure. Tire blowouts are particularly dangerous accidents because the driver has little to no control over the vehicle’s trajectory. Tire blowout accidents frequently result in death and serious injury to the affected vehicle’s occupants and occupants of the surrounding vehicles.

If you or a loved one is injured in an accident caused by a sudden tire blowout, you need to determine who is responsible for the blowout. Accurately identifying the cause of the blowout and the responsible parties will ensure you receive the help you need to move forward. To do this, you will need the help of lawyers and other trained professionals. Tire defect litigation is a highly specialized area of the law that requires training and ability. In fact, only a handful of firms across the country have the experience and resources necessary to go face-to-face with a multi-billion-dollar tire manufacturer and win. At The Ammons Law Firm, we have over thirty years of experience litigating tire-related accidents and know how to get you the compensation you deserve.

Tire Blowout Accidents Resulting from Poor Repair and Maintenance

If you are involved in a tire-related accident, it is important to determine if the blowout was caused by faulty repair or maintenance. Our firm handles cases nationwide caused by repair shops failing to install, maintain, or repair a tire properly. For example, a mechanic may install a directional tire backward, increasing the risk of hydroplaning—a common cause of tire-related accidents. Alternatively, a shop may install a tire that cannot support the vehicle’s weight, causing undue stress on the tire and leading to preventable accidents. Whatever the case, determining whether a faulty repair caused the accident is essential to ensuring the responsible party is held accountable.

At The Ammons Law Firm, we have helped our clients recover compensation for hundreds of tire-related accidents in Dallas and across the country. With this experience, we can quickly determine why your tire blew out and whether your accident was caused by improper repair or maintenance. When appropriate, we will hold the responsible parties accountable for your injuries and ensure you receive the compensation you deserve.

Tire Blowout Accidents Resulting from Tire Defects

Another cause of a sudden tire blowout is a tire defect. A tire defect occurs when the tire leaves the manufacturer with structural flaws. A defective tire is structurally unsound and more likely to fail under normal operating conditions. Unfortunately, most tire defects are not discovered until after a serious accident has occurred. Because of this, trained lawyers and industry experts must inspect the tire to determine if a latent defect was present when the tire was manufactured.

Holding a manufacturer accountable for a defective tire is a difficult task that requires experience and resources. At The Ammons Law Firm, we are routinely called upon by lawyers across the nation to handle cases involving defective tires because we understand this area of the law. If you were injured in a tire accident, determining whether a defect contributed to your accident is essential to recover the compensation you are entitled to under the law.

Recoverable Damages in a Tire Blowout Accident

When you are injured in an accident following a tire blowout, you may be entitled to monetary damages from the negligent party for your injuries. While the nature of your injuries will largely dictate your ultimate recovery, Texas law allows injured victims to recover economic and non-economic damages.

Economic Damages in Accident Cases

Economic damages are the monetary expenses incurred because of the accident. These damages are quantifiable and readily ascertainable. Examples of economic damages include:

  • Medical expenses, including those for immediate and ongoing treatment
  • Past and future disability expenses
  • Lost wages due to time off work to recover
  • Loss of future earning capacity
  • The costs of replacing damaged property, including vehicles
  • Other out-of-pocket expenses resulting from the accident

Some economic damages are readily apparent and easy to prove. However, others, like loss of future earning capacity, require the help of trained experts who can forecast the future effects of your injuries. At The Ammons Law Firm, we will help you identify and prove all economic damages you may be entitled to ensure you receive the compensation you are entitled to under the law.

Non-Economic Damages in Accident Cases

Non-economic damages help compensate accident victims for the intangible losses caused by an accident. These damages are more difficult to calculate because of their subjective and non-monetary nature. Examples of non-economic damages include:

  • Physical pain and suffering
  • Mental distress
  • Loss of companionship or consortium
  • Loss of enjoyment of life
  • Disfigurement and physical impairment

Because these damages are unique to each client, defendants are hesitant to pay these damages without a fight. At The Ammons Law Firm, we spend significant time and resources to convey how your injuries affect your life. This attention to detail ensures our clients receive the maximum compensation available under the law.
