Commentary on Tire Blowout Crash on I-30 in Texarkana

People have an unfortunate tendency to write tire blowout accidents off. The general assumption is that something in the road--vehicle debris, a loose nail--kicked up and not much can be done about holding anyone responsible for that. However, that isn't the only possible explanation--for instance, what if the tire was defective?

It's one thing if something on the road punched through the victim's tire, but it's another entirely if it failed due to poor design or fabrication by its makers. Under those circumstances the tire's manufacturer may be liable for the crash its faulty product caused. Such defects aren't particularly common, but they do happen and are often overlooked by investigators who don't know how to recognize their signs. Click below to learn more.
