Road accidents occur every day, and some produce severe injuries or death. Negligence to observe the road usage rules and regulations result in a majority of accidents. Therefore, a personal injury attorney should intervene to ensure justice prevails.

Conversely, vehicle malfunctions trigger a considerable number of road accidents. Defective tires are the commonest malfunction because many drivers rarely focus on them. Blowouts or general tire failures can cause devastating accidents with irreversible injuries.

Tread Separation

This is a regular type of tire malfunction shown by the tire body separating the treads. The smaller the body, the higher the chances of sliding to cause accidents. Tread separation occurs when belts and steel reinforcement are insufficiently bonded. Anyone can identify the problem immediately after installation because it creates some vibrations when driving.

Inappropriate Inflation

Only a few drivers concentrate on tires’ inflation needs and maintenance. Many drivers either overinflate or underinflate the tires, triggering potential imbalances that can cause accidents. Underinflated tires cause reduced vehicle control. It can be damaged by the rims when driving. Over-inflation can cause blowouts resulting from heated air. Blowouts are more catastrophic because they mainly happen at top speed.

Old and Delicate Rubber

Tires are made of rubber that depreciates over time either after intense driving or parking for a long time. Tires get more damaged while parked under the sun because the UV rays attack the sidewalls to enfeeble and crack them. These tires can blow out anytime to cause death or permanent injuries.

Mechanical Problems

Tires can have unseen mechanical damages, depreciated components of the suspension and steering system that cause uneven depreciation and damages. These tires can experience uneven pressure that can result in severe accidents. Product liability attorneys can be hired to file cases against manufacturers of these compromised tires.

Defective Materials

Average tire customers might not know authentic and defective materials. Every driver should look out for the quality as some manufacturers use substandard methods or materials to economize on the construction. These compromised materials are cheaper but can fail anytime to cause severe injuries. Defective tires have bulges, bubbles, blisters, uneven tread wear, depreciated treads, and damaged sidewalls.
