Tire Blowouts in Homestead or Your Community: What You Need to Know

Tire blowouts in Homestead and Florida are extremely frightening, both for the truck driver and for nearby motorists. These events are completely unexpected in most cases and can cause devastating accidents. In a tire blowout, a truck driver may lose control of their vehicle and may even be involved in a rollover accident or single vehicle truck collision. More often, however, when a truck driver tries to rein in their truck, other vehicles around the tractor trailer may have to swerve out of the way of the truck. This can cause secondary or chain reaction collisions. In addition, the tire blowout can cause debris to fall from the truck or can cause debris from the tires to smash up against the windshield of oncoming cars, which can also cause traffic accidents.

One of the big dangers with tire blowouts is that it can be difficult to control a large truck in the seconds immediately following a blowout. The truck may veer strongly or a truck driver may panic and forget the proper procedures for handling the truck after a tire blowout. In situations where the tire blowout occurs in heavy traffic or on a high-speed highway, the results can be even more devastating. Surrounding cars, pedestrians, and other shares of the road may all become part of the train reaction accident that leads to devastating loss of life and injury.


A big part of an operable and well-maintained tractor-trailer is the tire system. Due to the size and weight tractor-trailers and other commercial trucks, tires experience a lot of pressure. There are fortunately many things that truck drivers and truck companies can do in order to keep their tires and fleet safe:

  • Conduct proper maintenance on truck tires
  • Conduct regular tire inspections and keep a log of those inspections
  • Keep tires properly inflated
  • Avoid overloading the truck in order to avoid placing extra weight and pressure on tires
  • Use the proper tires for the load and the weight of the truck
  • Replace recalled truck tires them with safer tires

Cases involving commercial vehicles with tire issues are serious business. Not only do these collisions frequently lead to catastrophic injuries, but very often the liable parties in these cases are protected by powerful insurance companies and their attorneys. It can be devastating to learn that you have been injured due to someone’s negligence or recklessness only to find that a legal team acting on behalf of the defendant or insurance company acts quickly in order to limit liability on behalf of the negligent party and in order to limit the amount of compensation you may qualify for.

I had a lawyer on another case and I never spoke to the lawyer and I hated that I never knew what was going on in my case. Mr. Flaxman was in constant communication with me, explained everything to me, and his staff was really great too. My phone calls were always returned immediately. It was refreshing to be able to speak to my attorney personally. I would HIGHLY recommend Mr. Flaxman as an attorney to anyone who has been in an accident. Gloria
