Tire Blowouts Can Cause Truck Accidents
Each of an 18-wheeler truck's wheels is important to the proper operation and maneuvering of the truck. If a tire blows, a 17-wheeler truck will not be safe on the road. The driver can easily lose control of the truck, causing injury and death to innocent motorists.
Tread Separation Can Cause Tire Blowouts
Our attorneys are familiar with the many causes of truck accidents. We can launch a full investigation into the cause of your truck accident. In our experience, we have found that tread separation is a common cause of tire blowouts. The rubber and steel must be bonded together, and when this bond is inadequate, the tire can come apart. This is called tread separation. It happens most frequently in hot temperatures and at high speeds.
A tire blowout can cause a trucker to lose control of the truck. A rollover, override accident or other type of accident can occur. When a trucker loses control, there is very little motorists can do to get out of the way.
