Semi-Truck Accidents Caused by Tire Blowouts

Semi-trucks are a liability on the road, as accidents caused by these large vehicles can be potentially disastrous. When a semi-truck accident occurs as a result of a tire blowout, the consequences are extremely dangerous–if not fatal. Often 50,000 pounds of more, these trucks can bring devastation and destruction to all other vehicles on the road. A tire blowout most often causes a truck rollover, which occurs due to the thrown off balance of the truck in question.

These rollover, tire blowout accidents are extremely dangerous–wreaking havoc in their path. In order to come to a complete stop, the truck will likely be thrown across several lanes of the road. If other drivers are not aware of the situation at hand, they will not be able to get out of the way in due time. In fact, the truck driver and other drivers on the road will be lucky not to suffer from grave injuries.

Injuries which may occur in a semi-truck accident caused by a tire blowout include the following and more:

  • Broken bones
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Amputations
  • Burns
  • Emotional distress
  • Bruises
  • Sprains
  • Disfigurement
