Were You Injured In A Car Accident?
People across the United States rely on their cars every single day for everything from getting to and from work to transporting our children to their next activity. According to the United States Department of Transportation Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), the average American drives over 13,000 miles every year – that’s more mileage than driving around the entire perimeter of the mainland of the United States. While the cars themselves are designed to last for hundreds of thousands of miles, the tires that help carry them around aren’t, and if they aren’t properly looked after can burst without warning and cause a catastrophic crash.

How Often Do Tire Blowouts Occur?
According to the United States Department of Transportation's National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), tire blowouts cause approximately 11,000 crashes every single year. The NHTSA reported that some of the top causes of tire blowouts were underinflated tires, and while tire pressure monitoring systems (TPMS) have managed to drop the number of people driving on a deflated tire or tires by about half, that still potentially leaves millions of drivers unaware of the risks.
While underinflated tires increase the risk of a blowout, they can also cause vehicles to handle sluggishly, increase the distance it takes to come to a complete stop, and decrease the overall grip of the tire. Drivers need to keep a close eye on their tires to ensure that they remain roadworthy, and both retailers and manufacturers are required to provide their customers with accurate information on their products. Failure to do so can lead to potentially deadly accidents and serious personal injury.
