Waxahachie, TX (Law Firm Newswire) May 30, 2012 - As many Americans try to save money, they often cut corners on maintaining their vehicles. However, avoiding repairs and common replacements can lead to car accidents and possibly injure others.
Car owners are familiar with standing in a lobby as their mechanic approaches with an assessment of their vehicle's health. That assessment often leads to expensive repairs, and according to Consumers Reports National Research Center, forty percent of consumers are postponing repairs like brakes, lights, and tires.
Dallas car accident attorney, John Hale of The Hale Law Firm said, “Drivers are responsible for making sure their vehicles are safe. If drivers are aware of a problem with their brakes and they cause an accident, they are responsible for a lot of property damage and may also take somebody's life.”
Another common cause of car accidents on the highways and interstates of Texas is tire problems. A blown out tire can cause a driver to lose control, veer into oncoming traffic, and cause a serious injury. Most tire blowouts are the result of tire pressure being too high or too low, or the tire needing to be replaced.
Truck tire blowouts have proven to be fatal as drivers struggle to maintain control of their 18 wheelers. After the truck or vehicle is safely stopped on the site of the road, the tire debris left on the road can also cause serious accidents.
“It may seem like an unnecessary expense, but the safety of your passengers, other motorists, and yourself is at risk if you do not maintain your vehicle's tires. If another motorist has failed to maintain his or her vehicle, and caused harm or injury to you or your family, talk to a lawyer that can help you get the compensation you deserve,” Hale said.
