Coral Springs Injury and Accident Lawyer Discusses Rollover Crash in Broward County

Tire blowouts are linked to thousands of car accidents and hundreds of deaths each year. Last week in Broward County, on May 13, 2011, a Margate man and his passenger were critically injured in a tire blowout that resulted in a rollover car accident on I-75.

While a tire blowout cannot always be prevented, one should make it a habit to check their tires periodically to make sure they have enough tread. According to Florida Highway Patrol (FHP) recommendations, drivers should check the pressure on their tires every time before driving. In addition, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has compiled safety tips to avoid a tire blowout.

Our Coral Springs personal injury lawyers are curently handling a case where a tire blew out on a vehicle on the highway, resulting in a collision with another vehicle. The individual we represent was then unable to avoid one of the vehicles that was stopped on the highway due to the blowout.

We are investigating two aspects of that case. First: whether the vehicle on the highway could and should have moved out of the way, as required by Florida statute, if the vehicle was able to do so, and second: whether the vehicle, whose tire blewout, failed to maintain proper equipment, also a violation of the Florida statutes.

Unfortunately for our client, he sustained very serious injuries in his car accident.

Other avenues to investigate in these tire blowout cases are whether the tire itself was defective. There have been numerous successful tire blowout cases against tire manufacturers throughout the country. These types of cases fall under the product liability category. As product liability lawyers, we help people who are involved in product liability cases against vehicle manufacturers.
