Tire Blowouts and Car Accidents: Liability and Compensation

Tire blowouts are a sudden and frightening occurrence that can lead to serious car accidents, raising complex questions about liability and compensation. When these incidents occur, it’s not just about the immediate danger; it’s also about understanding who is at fault and what compensation may be available for the victims.

Who is Liable for a Car Accident Caused by a Tire Blowout?

  • Tire manufacturer
  • Car or parts manufacturer

  • Owner of another vehicle
  • Others responsible for the maintenance of the vehicles involved
  • City or state government
  • Those responsible for the maintenance of the road
