New York City Tire Tread Separation Blowout Lawyer
Experienced NYC Personal Injury Lawyers Committed to Helping the Injured
Truck drivers in and around New York City are expected to log thousands of miles each year. For many of these drivers, trucking companies offer incentives. When drivers are able to log more hours and arrive at their final destinations sooner, they can receive large cash bonuses.
However, logging large numbers of hours places significant wear and tear on truck tires. When tractor and trailer tires are not properly maintained, a blowout can occur that could lead to collisions with other motor vehicles. These blowouts can be especially dangerous when they occur on busy highways and roadways.

What is a Tire Tread Separation Blowout?
A tire tread separation blowout is a blowout that occurs when the tire tread on a big rig, 18-wheeler, or tractor-trailer separates from the tire body. The tire then loses air pressure quickly, and the truck or tractor-trailer driver could quickly lose control of the vehicle and collide with one or more other vehicles.
Why do Tire Blowouts Occur?
Blowout accidents can occur when truck drivers and trucking companies fail to keep an eye the condition of the tires on a large truck or tractor-trailer — and when these truck drivers fail to monitor tire pressures regularly. Blowout accidents could also occur when drivers operate their vehicles for long periods without regularly monitoring tire pressures and when they over-inflate the tires on the tractor or the trailer. Finally, blowout accidents sometimes result from poor tire maintenance, shoddy repair jobs on tractor or trailer tires, and defective tires.
In the event a blowout causes a truck accident, and the accident results in serious or permanent injuries, the accident victim could bring a claim or lawsuit directly against the negligent driver, trucking company, tire repair facility, or tire manufacturer, depending upon the accident circumstances.
