If you have been involved in a Florida car accident that was a result of a tire problem, you probably were very shaken up. The problem may have been your tire coming off the car spinning, your tire lost traction while making a turn, your car spun off the road, or your tire suffered a blowout. Whatever the problem was with the tire, you want some answers.
Some questions that may have been racing through your mind may include: What happened? Did something go wrong? Was my tire defective? Who should I call? Should I get the tire inspected? What do I do now?
After the initial confusion of a car crash and the hectic accident scene settles down, you may have more time to collect your thoughts, research your questions, and call someone who can help you.
A Florida personal injury lawyer who has experience handling defective tire cases and other car accident injury cases may be able to help answer your questions, calm your fears, and get your tire inspected to find out if it was defective.
What causes a tire to be defective?
Sometimes tires are defective and are caused by manufacturers cutting corners, design flaws, poor quality control issues, the use of weak materials, and adhesive failures. Other times, tires may go bad as they deteriorate from years of driving in high temperatures in the hot Florida weather.
There is no way for you to tell what the cause of your Florida car accident was without having your tire inspected by a professional who can determine if your tire may have been defective. If your tire is determined to be defective, a Fort Lauderdale accident attorney may be able to help you recover damages, collect financial compensation for injuries, lost wages, medical bills, and more.
Defective tires account for over 400 deaths in this nation each and every year. If you believe your family member was a victim of a deadly car wreck due to a defective tire, please call a skilled attorney who may be able to hold the tire manufacturer, tire retailer or dealer responsible.
