According to Michelin, as many as 23,000 accidents happen every year and nearly 550 people die because of tire blowouts. In fact, according to a report that was written by the University of Michigan Transportation Research Institute, tire blowouts are among some of the most common defects in a vehicle, ranking second only after defects in the brake system.

While it is well known that some accidents caused by tire blowouts are due to owner maintenance errors, some tire blowouts may be the result of manufacturing defect. When tires are properly installed, aligned correctly and properly maintained, a driver should be able use those tires for up to 80,000 miles before replacement becomes a necessity.

With the help of a proficient product liability law firm, you may be able to recover significant compensation for injuries sustained in this way, and you should absolutely consider speaking with an attorney.

Common Causes of a Tire Blowout

  • Poor installation by a mechanic
