Were you injured in a tire-related incident?

Many people lack knowledge about tire maintenance, especially state regulations and how to tell if a tire is defective. This places them at great risk for injury. If you've already suffered an injury in a collision caused by a tire blow-out and you believe negligence or defects were factors, you may want to learn more about the type of support available to help you pursue justice. 

Be proactive

There are several things you can do to improve your own vehicle safety when it comes to tires. The following list includes some of these ideas:

  • Rotating your tires is critical to safety as it helps your tires wear more evenly. The standard recommendation for tire rotation is every 5,000 to 7,000 miles.
  • Perhaps you got some new tires, but not for all four wheels on your car. It is always best to put the newest tires on the back axle of your car.
  • Rear traction is most important on wet roads. If you have new tires in the front and old tires in the back, you can quickly go into a spin if roads are wet.
  • Another issue that can cause your tires to lose traction is low air pressure.
  • If you don't know the standard recommendation for air pressure for the tires on your particular vehicle, you may want to check your owner's manual to find out.
  • Have you checked the depth of the tread on your tires lately? Many car owners use coins, specifically quarters, to do so.

To use a quarter to check your tire tread, you simply slip it into a groove, upside down and check if you can see the president's entire head and a little space. If you can, it is a definite sign that your tread is worn. The problem is that you may do all you can to make sure the tires on your vehicle are as safe as possible; however, if another motorist has a blow-out, you may be the one who suffers if a collision occurs.

Tire defects also a big problem

Sometimes, manufacturers fail in their obligations to produce automobile tires that meet the highest levels of accepted safety standards and regulations. In fact, defects can occur in many ways, at the expense of unsuspecting consumers. If you're injured in an accident involving tire issues, you may want to speak to someone who is well-versed in Arizona tire regulation laws as they relate to personal injury claims.
