Commercial trucks can weigh up to 80,000 pounds when fully loaded. Thus,
if they cause an accident, serious injuries or death could result. Trucking
companies and truckers are responsible to inspect the truck before departure
to ensure all necessary components are safe and functional. If a tire
blows out, and you are injured as a result, you may pursue compensation
against a variety of parties.
You may file a claim against:
- The truck driver
- The trucking company
- The truck maintenance provider
- The tire manufacturer
If the truck driver or trucking company failed to perform adequate inspection
of the truck before the journey, they may be held liable in court. Some
trucking companies use outside maintenance companies to service their
trucks. If the maintenance crew failed to inspect the truck tires, or
they performed improper maintenance and caused the blowout, they may be
held liable for your injuries.
On the other hand, you may also be able to file a lawsuit against the tire
manufacturer. If the tire was defective or poorly designed, the manufacturer
must be held responsible your injuries. A thorough investigation is necessary
to determine who is liable for the accident, and our firm can provide
diligent representation for your case.
