Tire problems cause truck and car crashes in Coral Springs and other communities, often leaving behind evidence in the form of torn pieces of rubber and other debris. For both passenger cars and big rigs, tires are an essential system. While many tire problems – such as blowouts – seem to happen out of the blue, safety experts agree that in many cases these accidents can be prevented.

Trucks place extra pressure on their tires due to their weight and as a result there are many rules in place to prevent tire-related crashes. Tractor trailers and big rigs are expected to take extra steps to keep their tires safe. Before sending trucks out onto the road, trucking companies and truck drivers are obligated to comply with a number of federal and local regulations, including:

  • Making sure that tires have a safe amount of tread on them
  • Driver inspection of tires before driving the truck
  • Recording visual inspections of the tires in the log book
  • Using the correct tires for the type of vehicle and the weight load
  • Properly installing, rotating, and adjusting the tires for maximum safety
  • Replacing tires that have low tread
  • Keeping tires correctly inflated

While passenger car drivers are not subject to the same rules, they are also expected to maintain their vehicles. If a passenger car motorist is found to be negligent in some manner, they can be held liable if their recklessness leads to an accident or an injury. In addition, the manufacturers of both truck and car tires are expected to produce a safe product. If they are reckless and their product is unsafe, manufacturers may be pursued in a products liability claim in Coral Springs or another community.

I had a lawyer on another case and I never spoke to the lawyer and I hated that I never knew what was going on in my case. Mr. Flaxman was in constant communication with me, explained everything to me, and his staff was really great too. My phone calls were always returned immediately. It was refreshing to be able to speak to my attorney personally. I would HIGHLY recommend Mr. Flaxman as an attorney to anyone who has been in an accident. Gloria
