If a tire issue has led to your traffic collision, there may be multiple liable parties, including:
1) The manufacturer of the tires. Sometimes, manufacturers introduce unsafe tires into the marketplace. This can mean that tires have design flaws or manufacturing flaws that cause them to leak, lose tread quickly, or rupture. In these cases, the manufacturer may be held liable for any injuries that result from their negligence.
2) The mechanic or company responsible for maintaining the tires. In some cases, the truck carrier or the owner of the commercial truck that has caused the accident have hired a company or mechanic in order to install and maintain the tires. If a mechanic has failed to replace recalled tires or has installed tires incorrectly, they may be held liable for any damages caused by injuries.
3) The truck carrier or owner of the truck. Ultimately, the truck carrier or owner of the truck is responsible for maintaining the truck safely. If they have failed to do so and this negligence caused your collision, you may have a claim against these liable parties.
4) The truck driver. Under federal guidelines, truck drivers are expected to check tires before each trip and to keep a written record of their visual inspections. If they fail to do this, they can be help partly liable if as a result of their rule violations a collision has resulted.What Are Your Rights After a Traffic Collision?
