The basics of tire-blowout accidents

Many traffic accidents are caused by tire blowouts. In some cases, the tire blowout is a result of poor tire manufacturing, including design defects, road hazards and maintenance issues. 

In such cases, the tire manufacturer may be liable in the accident. However, if the tire blew because it was old and worn, then the tire manufacturer likely is not at fault because of natural wear-and-tear standards. 

When tires blow out, the car can swerve off the road, hit another vehicle, or even rollover. These tragic accidents often lead to severe injuries.

Because of the complexity and severity of tire-blowout accidents, people involved in these accidents should call the Iowa automobile accident lawyers at 877-327-2600.

Man's death in accident now a supsected suicide

Although Des Moines police officers initially believed a man was killed in a car accident Monday morning, they are now suspecting that the death was the result of a homicide. 

The accident occurred early Monday morning when an automobile struck a tree. But after investigating the scene, officers realized that the car was probably not traveling fast enough to kill the man. 

A neighbor told officers that she heard a gunshot. Des Moines police officials, however, declined to speculate that the victim was shot until an autopsy was performed.
