Tire Blowout Accident Attorneys in North Carolina

Holding Defective Tire Manufacturers & Distributors Accountable

One of your tires blows out and a crash ensues—the accident is your fault, right? Wrong. If the tire was defective, the tire designer, manufacturer, or distributor may be liable.

If the tire blowout was a result of a road hazard, the municipality or entity responsible for road maintenance may be liable. Importantly, if this is the case, you may be able to collect compensation for your damages that resulted from the accident.

At Lanier Law Group, our North Carolina defective tire attorneys know how to properly investigate car accident cases. We can promptly assess your situation and determine if you have a valid claim. Visit one of our multiple office locations or give us a call to learn what our skilled legal team can do for you.

Common Causes of Tire Blowouts

When a tire blows out, it can cause the driver to lose control of the vehicle and result in an accident. But what causes the initial tire blowout?

Common reasons for blowouts include:

  • Potholes: A pothole can do more than just cause an unpleasant bump. They can cause your tires to rupture suddenly, leading to loss of vehicle control.
  • Defective tires: Tires are supposed to be engineered to stand up to road conditions. If a tire blows out, it may have been poorly designed or defective.
  • Overloading a vehicle: Cars and trucks are designed to carry heavy loads, but if you overload your vehicle, your tires may give way.
  • Punctures: A small puncture in a tire may go unnoticed, but over time, the hole will lead to decreased air pressure and eventually cause the tire to tear from the rim.

Who Is Liable for Tire Blowouts?

Understanding the exact circumstances surrounding your accident and the reason behind the tire blowout is critical in determining who is liable.

Some examples of who may be liable for a tire blowout include:

  • The tire manufacturer: All product manufacturers, including tire manufacturers, have a responsibility to create well-designed, safe-to-use products. When they put defective or dangerous products on the market, innocent people can be hurt or killed. If a tire on your car blew out unexpectedly, it may have been defective—and the manufacturer or another related party may be liable.
  • A government/public entity: In most cases, poor road conditions and hazards should be handled quickly and effectively by the public entities responsible for road maintenance. When these entities fail to properly and promptly fix road hazards, it can lead to a tire blowout and, in turn, a devastating accident.
  • A private business: A tire blowout can be caused by an object in the roadway that fell from a privately owned truck or something left in the road by a landscaper or construction company. If a private business was negligent, and this led to a tire blowout, that private business may be liable for the resulting damages.

When an auto accident causes pain and suffering for you and your family, you need dependable legal counsel. At Lanier Law Group, we take pride in providing injury victims with compassionate legal services. If you believe a tire blowout led to the accident that caused your pain, suffering, and losses, we can help.

    "20 out of 10 stars."
    There are times in your life you are so hurt and feel life has a grudge against you. Nothing in your life is going right. I lost the most important person in my life to death, of which I knew mistakes were made because I witnessed it with my own eyes. When you contact a law group you most of the time get all business and a matter of fact conversation. I want all to know that from the first phone call they listened to my lengthy story, sobbing most of the time with so much compassion. They never made any promises but offered assurances that no stone would be unturned. They fulfilled every word they said. They restored faith that I had lost. Until you are in a position like mine you can never know how invaluable Lanier Law Group is. They were wonderful while maintaining their professionalism. They treated me like a family member. They really do care about their clients. But most of all they are the best at what they do. I worked in the court system for years so I knew how attorneys and law firms basically operated. Understanding the law and it's interpretation is the ultimate key to winning any case. Also know that if an attorney/attorneys study and review your case and know that you don't have a chance in a court of law and are big enough to tell you that instead of giving you false hope, you then my friend have a group with valuable shared values. I have so much respect for everyone in this Law Group. I recommend Lanier Law Group, P.A. to anyone who needs representation, they are in your corner. 20 out of 10 stars.

    "Lanier Law Group will always be the choice for me and all my family members"
    I started working with Lanier Law Group in 2020 on my Social Security Disability case. They from start to finish were awesome. My case manager Janet Hanks and attorney, Ashley Sappenfield were always available to answer all my questions. I did not have to do much but sit back and let them handle whatever was needed. My case took too long (2 years) and if I did not have Janet and Ashley My case would still not be approved. I would recommend Lanier to anyone to get the job done and approved. Do not go to another firm with your case, who promise the world and do not see it to completion and do not think another firms would have worked as hard as they did on my case. Lanier Law Group will always be the choice for me and all my family members to handle any cases of this type and other legal services they provide. They went above and beyond!

    "So thankful for your expertise and professionalism"
    Mrs. Gonzalez did an awesome job of explaining everything in detail and keeping me informed on the status of my case. Despite poor customer service with the insurance company, Mrs. Gonzalez was able to fix what they could not. Mrs. Gonzalez was very helpful with helping me understand things that I was not aware of when dealing with insurance claims. I am so thankful for her expertise and professionalism.
