If Your Tire Blew Out

If you were driving on a road or highway, and your tire blew out, causing you to be in an accident and suffer severe injuries, you may not be responsible. Your tires may be found to have a design or manufacturing defect. The manufacturer of the tires could be liable and may have to compensate you for your injuries. When we represent you, we will conduct a thorough investigation into the cause of your accident. If we find that your tire(s) blew as a result of a defect that the manufacturer knowingly or unknowingly caused, we will seek compensation from the manufacturer on your behalf.

If Someone Else’s Tire Blew Out

car accident from blown tiresIf you were in a car accident with another driver whose tires blew out on the road or highway, you may be entitled to compensation from their insurance company. Drivers have a duty to operate their vehicles safely. Part of the safe operation of a vehicle is making sure all parts are functioning properly. If the driver failed to have their vehicle inspected and/or failed to have their tires changed or rotated in a timely manner, and that was the cause of the tires blowing out, then they may be liable for the accident.

Their liability means they may have to compensate you for your injuries. If their tires are found to have been defective, the manufacturer of their tires may be liable and may have to compensate you for your injuries.

Common Car Accident Injuries

There are a number of injuries that can be sustained after a tire blowout car accident. These injuries can range from mild to severe and can require a variety of types of medical treatment. The recovery from these injuries can be a long and life-altering journey. Some commonly seen injuries from tire blowout car accidents include:

  • Broken bones and limbs
  • Burns, cuts, and bruises
  • Head and neck injuries, including brain injuries like traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) and whiplash
  • Spinal cord injuries, including paralysis
  • Organ damage
  • Mental health injuries, like Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), depression, and anxiety

Compensation for Tire Blowout Accidents

There are three types of damages that you may be awarded in a tire blowout accident case: economic damages, noneconomic damages, and punitive damages.

These costs include expenses associated with any medical treatment you received immediately following the car accident and any expenses for ongoing treatment that you may need. If you need to take prescription drugs to help with your recovery from your injuries, economic damages may cover the costs. If you become disabled as a result of your injuries from the accident and need modifications made to your home or car, you may be awarded economic damages to pay for it.

If you haven’t been able to work while recovering from your injuries, you can be compensated in the form of economic damages for your lost income. If your injuries have been severe or detrimental enough to affect your future earning potential, you may be compensated for any future loss of income. You may also be compensated for property damage you sustained in the accident, including the repair or replacement of your vehicle.

Noneconomic damages are intended to compensate you for the less easily quantified consequences of your accident. You may be compensated for the mental anguish you’ve experienced after your accident. The injuries you’ve sustained may be traumatic, and you can receive compensation for your pain and suffering. Not only do car accident injuries affect you, but they can also have a detrimental impact on your loved ones. Your family can be compensated for what they’ve endured while supporting your recovery journey.

Lastly, you may also be awarded punitive damages. This is a rare form of compensation meant to punish the person or people responsible for the car accident and deter any repeat of those actions.

In order to pursue these damages, you must file your personal injury lawsuit within a certain time frame. This time limit is outlined in the statute of limitations. In South Carolina, you have three years from the date of the car accident to file a suit.
