When a tire blowout causes a truck accident, an obvious and important question is whether the tire was defective. Numerous manufacture recalls of truck tires, including Chinese tires, have confirmed what many accident victims experienced firsthand: the tires did not do the job they were supposed to do. Injuries and deaths result from tire blowout accidents involving cars, trucks, towed trailers, SUVs and recreational vehicles.
The tire manufacturer may be liable in your truck accident case if it can be proven that a tire that blew out and caused the crash was defective. Other entities may be responsible as well, such as the truck driver or a maintenance service company if worn tire treads were not noted and tires were not replaced in a timely manner.
If your truck accident case is handled by the Law Offices of Wade E. Byrd, P.A., you can expect aggressive investigation into details such as whether the truck's tires were involved in a recall. This is one example of why early advocacy by a truck accident attorney is so important after a crash causes serious or catastrophic injury or death. Discovering a piece of evidence such as a driver's maintenance log or defective tires on the truck can be difficult or impossible months after an accident. Wreckage components, for example, may be disposed of, or driver's logs might be destroyed. After North Carolina tire blowout accidents, lawyer representation can make the difference between an unsatisfactory injury claim and a successful one.
