A Blown Truck Tire Can Ruin More Than Your Day

Blown Truck TireWhen a semi truck’s tire blows, an ensuing accident has the potential to cause major damage.

If you have been hurt during a truck accident in Dallas, you already know that an accident involving a large truck can damage your vehicle and your life. Accidents with 18 wheelers are rarely minor, and the people who are most likely to be injured or killed are not the truck drivers, but the motorists involved in the crash.

Common causes of blown truck tires include:

  • Improper tire inflation
  • Lack of tire maintenance
  • Old tires
  • Tires that have been damaged
  • Defective tires

Getting Help for a Blown Truck Tire Case

You were hit by a semi truck or have lost a loved one in an accident involving a large truck. What do you do? Maybe you believe that a blown tire caused the accident, or that the truck driver was at fault. Do you take on the insurance company yourself? Well, they certainly hope you will.

Accident victims who do not seek the advice of an attorney are much more likely to settle for less than their case is worth. Insurance companies know this and will do all they can to get you to sign an offer of compensation before you speak with a Dallas personal injury lawyer. Don’t be too eager to sign on the dotted line. Doing so may drastically limit the amount of compensation you receive. Once you sign, there is often little our attorneys can do to get you the money you deserve.

Don’t fall for the insurance companies’ traps and tricks. Before signing anything, before you even speak with a representative from an insurance company, call 972-774-9800 and make an appointment with a Dallas truck accident lawyer who has the skills and experience needed to take on the insurance company and win. The call is free, and the initial consultation is free. You have nothing to lose and everything to gain. Call today.
