What Should You Do After A Car Accident?

3 Ways to Avoid Accidents during Tire Blowouts

A driver who experiences a tire blowout may need to take quick action to prevent a serious collision. These incidents can occur for a variety of reasons, but are often due to a manufacturer’s shoddy construction or safety evaluations. Because of these mistakes, a motorist may face the threat of severe injuries from a collision. However, there are some ways to prevent a collision in this dangerous situation.

If your injuries are the result of a manufacturer’s negligence, you may be entitled to pursue legal compensation for your injury expenses. To learn more about your rights as an injured motorist, contact Jacksonville personal injury lawyer Donald Guthrie, P.A., today at 904-296-1088.

Safety Tips for Blowout Accidents

If a driver can make quick decisions to take control during a blowout, they may be able to prevent a collision. The following tips may be useful for someone in a blowout accident:

  1. Don’t immediately stop accelerating, but gradually bring the vehicle to a stop.
  2. Slamming on the brakes can make a blowout worse.
  3. Whenever possible, a driver should pull off of the road and stop their vehicle.

Unfortunately, these emergencies often leave drivers without the ability to react. When this happens, a driver can be left with substantial injuries that may require immediate medical help.
