Liability When New Tires Blow Out
Car Accidents that Result in Injures
When automobile accidents result in injuries, the person responsible for causing the accident may be liable for damages. Sometimes a defect on the vehicle itself is the cause of an accident. In these situations, there is nothing the driver could have done to prevent the accident, so the driver should not be held responsible. Tire blow outs often occur based upon defects in the tire itself or negligent installation by an auto mechanic. If you have driven a motor vehicle and experienced a tire blow out which caused an accident resulting in personal injury or property damage, it is important to contact an attorney immediately to protect your rights.
An attorney can help defend you against claims brought by the other drivers injured by the accident and their insurance providers. Insurance companies are typically only concerned about having their clients reimbursed by the other driver and they will not take the time to pursue a claim against a manufacturer. An attorney will be able to show that you are not at fault, but the tire manufacturer or mechanic is to blame for the incident. Not only can an attorney protect you from claims brought by the other drivers, but an attorney can help you pursue your own claim against the manufacturer.
In order to hold the tire manufacturer liable for the damages, certain elements must be proven. These elements are complex and often require extensive evidence and witnesses. An attorney will know how to gather important evidence and will be able to identify witnesses who will be able to show that the tire was defective. Certain professional expert witnesses are often essential to these types of cases, because identifying a defect can be difficult and proving the defect as the cause of the accident often requires scientific analysis. An attorney will know the important rules of evidence and procedure to better ensure that your case in not thrown own on a technicality.
