What You Should Do After a Tire Blowout

Although tire blowouts have significantly decreased in recent years because of advancements in tire technology, blowouts are still a major cause of automobile accidents every year across the nation. Whether from natural wear, potholes and other road defects, or a manufacturing defect, blowouts can be very serious and could put you, passengers, and other motorists at risk of an accident. Blowouts significantly increase your risk of an accident because not only does it put your car at risk of spinning out or rolling over, but it also catches the driver by surprise. You can decrease your risk of an accident by knowing how to react in case of a blowout.

If you are involved in a car accident because of a negligent tire manufacturing company, you may be eligible for financial compensation to help pay for medical bills, lost wages, and other damages.

Reacting Appropriately to a Tire Blowout

If your tire blows out while you are driving, you need to know how to respond so you can get your vehicle under control. Above all, make sure you stay calm and in control so you can act appropriately. To reduce your risk of an accident, be sure to:

  • Keep your same rate of speed after the blowout. This means keep your foot on the accelerator and never hit the brakes.
  • Steer into the skid to get your automobile under control
  • Gradually slow down and pull to the side of the road
