Winter weather conditions take their toll on car tires and blowouts are very common during this time of the year. These blowouts are often caused by too little pressure in the tire. It is important to check tires on a regular basis and also look for any signs of tire wear. Tire care and maintenance are crucial to get the best performance out of a car. It can also help you avoid losing control of your vehicle and avoid the risk of being in a crash. If you were involved in an accident caused by a bad tire, a New Haven auto accident attorney can assess your situation and help protect your interests.
The top causes for tire blowouts are:
- Defective tires from the manufacturer, which are generally covered under a warranty
- Tires without the right air pressure level
- Defects that cause quick air loss
- Punctures from nails or screws
- Overloading the car
A flat tire can happen at any moment. Make sure you properly maintain your car’s tires and keep the air pressure appropriately adjusted. If you or a loved one were in a crash and suspect a tire blowout, contact the experienced New Haven auto accident attorneys at The LoRicco Law Firm.
