Truck Tire Blowout Accidents

Mobile, Alabama Truck Accident Attorney – (251) 299-0101

Commercial trucks carry extreme amounts of weight at highway speeds, making them a more-dangerous vehicle than the average in even the best conditions. The hazards presented by a big rig will only be exaggerated if there is an issue with one or more of its tires. As the only parts of a truck that connect it to the road, tires need to be manufactured and maintained carefully, or else a catastrophic tire blowout could occur while the vehicle is in motion.

Accidents Caused by Truck Tire Blowouts

When a commercial truck experiences a tire blowout, it is almost certain to cause an accident of some kind. The seriousness of the accident, however, depends on the circumstances, making tire blowouts all the more dangerous to others on the road.

A truck tire blowout can cause:

  • Weaving and uncontrolled merging: Commercial trucks tend to have more than a dozen tires — which is why some trucks are called 18-wheelers — to keep the large vehicle under control. Depending on which tire bursts, it could cause the trailer behind the tractor to start sliding from side-to-side. Any vehicles in adjacent lanes could be sideswiped.
  • Tipping and jackknifing: Multiple tire bursts, or a blowout during a turn, could cause the truck to tip over entirely, spilling its cargo into the road and endangering adjacent lanes. A jackknife accident may also happen, which involves the tractor-trailer buckling at its joint, effectively folding up and usually blocking all lanes of traffic.
  • Thrown debris: Sometimes the worst and most unexpected danger caused in a truck tire blowout accident is rubber chunks of the tire flying outwards and backwards into traffic. There have been reports of people suffering severe injuries and even dying due to large pieces of truck tires ejecting at high speeds when a blowout occurs.
