Defective Tires

We Know What To Look For When Faulty Tires Are Suspected

Tire blowouts are common and can be a source of motor vehicle accidents. Such accidents can be devastating, especially when involving 18-wheelers. If you or a loved one suffered serious injury through a semi-truck accident caused by tire blowout, our San Antonio tire blowout attorneys can investigate and determine the prospects of pursuing a case. The Law Offices of Fidel Rodriguez, Jr., has been handling 18-wheeler and other vehicle accidents for more than three decades.

Tire blowouts frequently cause truck drivers to lose control of their vehicles. A swerving truck can spill cargo, which flies into other vehicles or into their paths, causing wrecks or pileups. Blowouts can also cause trucks to jackknife or roll over. When a truck’s cargo contains hazardous or flammable materials, the risk of harm becomes even greater.

Liable Parties In Tire Blowout Accidents

Thorough investigation is paramount in a tire blowout case, and our firm has access to investigators and forensic specialists who can determine causes and uncover negligence. Working with a team of experts, a lawyer in San Antonio can discover whether negligence resulted from a:

  • Truck driver’s failure to conduct routine pre-inspections
  • Mechanic’s failure to replace worn-out or defective tires
  • Trucking company’s lack of regular vehicle maintenance checks and failure to provide new tires
  • Tire manufacturer’s release of defective tires
  • Trucking company’s failure to replace tires under defective tire recalls

Sometimes multiple parties are liable because more than one factor led to the tire blowout, such as a driver’s failure to conduct inspections and a manufacturer’s defective tire. A San Antonio personal injury lawyer can research and investigate whether a trucking company or truck driver used tires known to be defective, and gather evidence to prove tire defect.

Trucking companies and truck drivers must follow very strict and specific Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) regulations for tires. Our auto defect attorneys are well-versed in recognizing violations, such as cargo weights that exceed tire manufacturing limitations or safety standard infractions.
