Utah Truck Accident Lawyers
Tire blowouts are a common cause of truck accidents. Given the weight of semi trucks, passenger vans and other large commercial vehicles, the tires for such vehicles must be capable of withstanding tremendous pressure.
Tire blowouts may be the result of manufacturer defects or negligence on the part of a trucker or trucking company. The manufacturer is responsible for providing a safe product. The truck driver and truck company are responsible for the proper maintenance of their vehicle, including the maintenance of proper tire pressure and the replacement of tires with known dangers. Furthermore, truckers and truck companies have a responsibility to properly load cargo onto a truck to avoid overloading that may put undue pressure on the vehicle's tires.
Compensation for Tire Blowout Accidents
Depending on the facts of your case, you may be able to pursue compensation through a personal injury claim, product liability claim, or both. A product liability claim may form the basis for recovery if the tire blowout was caused by manufacturer negligence.
If the accident was caused by driver error or trucking company error, you may pursue compensation through a personal injury claim. Since multiple factors may have contributed to the cause of the accident, you may have a basis to pursue compensation through both a personal injury and product liability claim.
