Las Vegas Tire Blowout

Las Vegas Tire Defect Lawyers

Injured in a Tire Blowout Accident

Were you or someone you love injured in an accident involving a tire blowout in the Las Vegas area? If so, you need a lawyer experienced in the field of blowouts that can hold responsible parties accountable for their mistakes. Because tire blowouts happen suddenly and without warning, they are extremely dangerous and often cause serious accidents. When this happens, it is important to hold the person or company responsible for the blowout liable for their actions to ensure similar accidents are prevented. Additionally, when you are injured in a blowout accident, the party responsible for the blowout must compensate you for the harm you have suffered.

Perhaps you are not certain who was responsible for your tire blowing out. Maybe you don’t know if you can recover compensation for your injuries. However, no matter what appears to be the case, it is important to have the accident inspected by trained attorneys that understand tire blowout lawsuits. At The Ammons Law Firm, we have been handling tire blowout lawsuits across the nation for more than thirty years and have a proven track record of success.

Blowout Accidents Caused by Negligent Service Providers

Sometimes tires that were just serviced by a repair shop blow out. Car maintenance and repair shops are obligated to do their jobs professionally. This includes installing the correct tires on the right vehicle and in the proper direction. If a car shop does not use reasonable care in installing or fixing a tire, they may be held liable for any accidents caused by their negligence.

Additionally, service centers are often required to inspect a vehicle’s tires when the vehicle is brought in for routine maintenance and repair. If it is determined that the tires have noticeable issues that require further attention, the provider must advise their customers of the issue to prevent blowouts from happening.

This concept is especially true with commercial vehicles subject to strict maintenance standards. Given the weight of a fully loaded semi-truck, seemingly minor tire issues can lead to sudden tire blowouts. For instance, riding on an under-inflated truck tire causes the tire to overheat, which degrades the structural integrity of the tire, leaving the tire more susceptible to sudden blowouts. Given the known risks associated with the negligent repair and maintenance of a tire, evidence showing a tire was neglected may subject the party to liability.

Only a detailed investigation can determine whether negligent repair or maintenance was the cause of your blowout. This requires an in-depth inspection of your vehicle, its tires, and prior maintenance records. As tire defect attorneys, we can perform this investigation for you and make sure any responsible parties are held liable for your injuries.

Blowout Accidents Caused by Tire Defects

Tire defects are yet another possible cause of tire blowout accidents. A tire is defective when it is unreasonably dangerous for everyday use when it leaves the manufacturer. Consumers have little control over whether a tire is defective because the defect is present before the consumer takes control of the tire.

Accidents resulting from tire defects are especially troublesome because they happen suddenly without notice to the driver. Sometimes tire defects are hidden structural abnormalities occurring inside the tire that cannot be seen by maintenance or repair shops. As a result, conscientious drivers get into accidents despite the dutiful maintenance and upkeep of their vehicles. Tire defects regularly cause tragic accidents throughout America.

Determining whether a tire defect caused a blowout is no easy job. It requires experts who are trained in the area, and expert equipment must be used to inspect the inside of the tire to prove that structural errors were in existence during the manufacture of the tire. If you are involved in a tire blowout accident, retaining the tire for inspection is crucial to identifying the party responsible for the blowout.

Goodyear Tire Blowouts

One of the largest manufacturers of tires in the United States is Goodyear. Our attorneys at The Ammons Law Firm have litigated many cases against Goodyear for clients who were injured in accidents caused by their tires. Goodyear has been responsible for producing and distributing hundreds of thousands of tires subject to recalls for defects, including a recent recall of 200,000 defective tires. If you were injured in an accident where a Goodyear tire suddenly blew out, contact us today to determine whether you have a right to sue Goodyear for your injuries.

Bridgestone Tire Blowouts

Our law firm has also seen an alarming rise in accidents caused by Bridgestone tires. These tires are failing under normal conditions and causing serious accidents. What’s worse, many of these tires are on large commercial vehicles, leading to devastating results. This trend is very disconcerting and will keep rising if we allow defective tires to stay on our roads.

If you were injured in an accident caused by a Bridgestone tire blowout, it is important to have your case investigated to determine whether the tire was defective. If so, you may have a claim against the manufacturer for the harm you have suffered.
