Tire Blowouts

Tire Blowout Lawyers in Houston

Serving Victims of Motor Vehicle Accidents Nationwide

The majority of drivers in the United States today will suffer from some sort of tire issue, from a flat tire which may cause them to be late for an appointment, to a far more serious issue known as a tire tread separation.

According to a 2003 study by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), tire failures were responsible for more than 78,000 crashes each year and over 400 deaths.

Tire Blowouts vs. Tread Separation

Many of those who face some sort of tire issue will often use the term “tire blowout” to describe any type of failed tire. But there is a difference between a “blowout” and another tire problem known as a “tread separation.”

A tire tread separation is potentially far more disastrous than a tire blowout. This is true for several reasons. For example, the separated tread can wrap around the vehicle’s axle or interact with its braking system components or even rip into the passenger compartment. Also, without the full tread on the tire, there is nothing to provide traction between the tire and the roadway. Driving on a tire with no tread is akin to driving on ice. Tread separations also affect a vehicle’s dynamics and can cause the vehicle to become uncontrollable.

Researching a Potential Tire Defect

If you suspect that your tire may be defective, you may consider taking various actions.

You can report a suspected defective tire on the NHTSA's website. This website will also list information about any recalls that may apply to your tire.

Another option is to share your experience with your tire by posting a complaint at carcomplaints.com. This is a free website which many of the leading law firms in the United States use to help uncover dangerous tire and other driving trends.

The Center for Auto Safety (CAS) also receives reports of potentially defective tires. This organization researches automotive issues.
