Keeping your car, truck or SUV properly-maintained can be tedious and time-consuming. However, letting things lapse like keeping your tires properly inflated can have dangerous results. Poorly-maintained tires cause more than 19,000 accident injuries and around 500 fatalities each year around the United States. Keeping your tires at the correct pressure and replacing them before they are extremely worn are not things you want to delay.
If you do find yourself involved in an accident, despite your best efforts to keep your tires properly inflated, it’s important to have a good car accident lawyer to represent your side of the story. Teaching yourself liability law while going through the trauma of an accident injury isn’t likely to give you the best outcome. Better, you rely on someone with experience in negotiating such settlements and concentrate your energy on healing and taking care of your family.
Dangers of Improper Tire Care
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, nearly 50 percent of the cars and trucks on the road have at least one tire that is under-inflated. They also found that 10 percent had at least one bald tire. This is a dangerous scenario. Worn and poorly-inflated tires aren’t able to grip the road well. Plus, when the pavement is wet, there are no grooves to keep the excess water away from the tire surface.
