Most drivers understand that regular vehicle inspections and proper maintenance of their cars, trucks, and motorcycles can help prevent serious accidents caused by malfunctions or breakdowns of the vehicle's parts and systems. Unfortunately, maintenance and other preventative measures may not be able to detect certain dangerous defects that can place drivers and passengers in harm's way.
Tire blowouts caused by defective tires can cause serious accidents that may have a lasting effect on a person's health and well-being. Individuals who are involved in an accident may be forced to pay extensive medical expenses and may have to deal with lasting pain and disabilities.
