Tire Failure Lawsuit
The Highway Safety Research Institute reports that approximately 5 percent of truck crashes on the Ohio and Pennsylvania turnpikes are caused by tire failure. This is significantly higher than the national average reported by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMSCA).
Our turnpikes are high speed roads. The heat that can build up in under-inflated, poorly retread or defective tires can lead to failure. When an under-inflated retread causes a blowout accident involving other motorists, it is extremely important to gather evidence at the scene as soon as possible.

Truck tire tread separation, retread blowouts and defective tire failure: Who is to blame? Call 1-866-586-1910 for answers in a free consultation with an experienced attorney.
Tire retreads are used in a significant majority of commercial trucking fleets, with short-haul (local or regional) carriers leading the way. The lifetime of a retread tire is only about three-quarters that of a new tire.
It is vitally important for truckers, trucking companies and outsource tire maintenance companies to perform frequent inflation checks and to keep accurate records of tire performance, age and maintenance. Unfortunately, this is not always the case.
When a serious or fatal truck accident involves a tread separation or retread or new tire blowout, determining the actual cause of the truck tire failure allows us to pursue those responsible for your injury or loss.
