In some instances, it is not a failure to maintain the tires, but rather negligence at play, in an accident like this. If there is a manufacturer defect or a failure to properly install new tires, the accident can rest on the shoulders of the companies at play.
For this reason, it is essential to get to a safe place after a tire blowout, and then to contact a personal injury attorney. In order to remain safe in a situation like this, it is recommended that the driver not come to an abrupt stop or try to quickly maneuver the car to the side of the road. Rather, it is wise to let the bad wheel slow the vehicle naturally and to get out of the flow of traffic when this can be done without putting oneself at further risk. Once this is managed and the car is away from oncoming traffic, phone calls can be made to towing companies, repair shops, insurance companies, and attorneys. It may be possible to recoup some- or all of the expenses attributed to the accident.
