What Causes Big Rig Tire Accidents?
Big rig trucks earned their name because they are such heavy vehicles and weigh as much as 80, 000 pounds. The tires used to transport them are sizeable, weighing about 250 pounds each. When there is a tire blowout, or the tire is defective, the vehicle can become unsteady and difficult for the driver to control and puts other drivers in harm’s way.
These are the most common causes of big rig tire accidents:
- Defective tires
- Improper tire maintenance
- Tires do not meet regulations set forth by DOT
- Tire material is not consistent or poorly made
- Tires mounted are different sizes on the vehicle
If your case involves an issue of improper tire maintenance or a defective tire, it is also possible that you may also need to make a product liability claim of negligence against the manufacturer. You may be able to recover the costs incurred by your accident.
