Causes of Connecticut Tire Blow-Out Truck Accidents

Monday, December 2nd, 2019 by | Posted In: Truck Accidents

Many licensed drivers have likely experienced a flat tire in their driving career. Although it can be unsettling to hear and feel the air suddenly rush out of a tire, most drivers are able to safely pull their vehicle to the side of the road. A tire blowout – when a tire does not deflate but actually explodes – can be a much more terrifying and dangerous situation. A car tire blowout can cause the car driver to suddenly lose control of the car and crash. When a commercial truck experiences a tire blowout, the results can be even more devastating; not only is the truck driver likely to lose control of the semi, but in doing so they may crash into one or more other vehicles and cause serious and even fatal injuries.

Unfortunately, you cannot predict when a truck’s tire will have a blowout. If it causes a Connecticut truck accident, the attorneys at McEnery Price Messey & Sullivan would investigate the following causes: 

When a commercial truck suffers a tire blowout, there is oftentimes very little the truck driver can do to control the truck. A driver who is aware of the blowout may attempt to safely stop the vehicle; however, depending on which tire suffered a blowout, the driver may not be able to do this. A blowout on an isolated road may only result in injuries to the truck driver, but a semi-truck tire blowout on the highway can result in a multi-car crash that results in several injuries or fatalities.
