Truck Tire Blowout Accident Attorneys
As you’re driving along, have you ever seen a ‘road alligator?’
This black debris is actually what’s left of a blown out truck tire and what could have been a truck accident. If an accident were to occur as a result of a blown out tire, then the victims would be entitled to compensation.
Every semi-truck driver has both a personal responsibility and a professional duty to conduct a thorough inspection of their rig before driving on the nation’s roadways.
In fact, The Department of Transportation and the federal government mandates that, before each trip, each driver must inspect their:
- and Load
Consider that a fully loaded semi-truck weighs more than 80,000 pounds. If a driver ignores defective or worn tread on their tires or doesn’t air up tires that are under-inflated, they’re putting both the public and themselves in potentially mortal danger. In fact, the statistics show that blown out tires are the leading cause of truck accidents in America.
Furthermore, drivers can easily prevent tire blowouts through routine inspections. Unfortunately, even trained drivers sometimes forget or refuse to check their vehicle despite mandates from the federal government.
Driving a semi-truck with unsafe, un-inspected tires is pure negligence. Any truck driver that does so and any trucking company that’s allowing their drivers to do so need to be held accountable for their driver’s actions.
