Blowout Accidents Caused by Poor Maintenance and Repair Services

Poor maintenance and repair may be a potential cause of a tire blowout accident. Occasionally, tires recently serviced by a repair shop or inspected during routine maintenance fail under normal operating conditions. Repair shops have a duty to repair tires correctly. Additionally, tire shops must install the right tires, on the right vehicle, in the correct direction. A repair shop that fails to install or repair a tire properly may be liable for an accident caused by the shop’s negligence.

Alternatively, service centers are required to inspect and inform consumers during routine maintenance of noticeable tire issues that could affect the tire’s integrity. This is especially true for commercial vehicles that are subject to stringent inspection and repair standards. A service center that negligently performs an inspection, fails to perform an inspection entirely, or neglects to notify a consumer of a potential tire issue, may be liable for an accident caused by the shop’s failure to identify and remedy the issue appropriately.

Whether a repair or service shop is responsible for your accident requires a detailed investigation of your vehicle, its tires, and all past maintenance records. At The Ammons Law Firm, we have conducted hundreds of investigations and have held countless tire and service centers responsible for blowout accidents caused by their negligence.

Blowout Accidents Caused by Tire Defects

Another potential cause of a tire blowout accident is a tire defect. A tire is defective when the condition of the tire is unreasonably dangerous at the time it left the manufacturer. Tire defects affect tires of all types and sizes and from all manufacturers.

Tire defect accidents are particularly worrisome because they occur without warning. Tire defects are often latent structural deformities within the tire’s body that cannot be discovered by routine maintenance and repair. Because of this, otherwise vigilant drivers are involved in accidents despite their best efforts to properly maintain and repair their vehicles. Tire defects are extremely dangerous and cause catastrophic accidents across the country.

It is difficult to determine if a tire defect caused a tire blowout. Trained experts must examine the tire’s internal components with special imaging technology to identify and prove structural errors present during manufacturing. If you are in an accident involving a tire blowout, securing the tire for proper examination is essential to establishing that the tire was defective and holding the manufacturer responsible for your injuries.
