What Constitutes Defective Tire Auto Accidents?
Unfortunately, there are many car accidents in California caused by defective tires. These car accidents are not like most other auto accidents because in most cases, the drivers involved in the accident are not to blame for the accident. Under California tort law, however, the party responsible for the accident can be any of the following parties: The vehicle’s mechanic, The tire repair shop, The business that sold the consumer the defective tire, The company that manufactured the flawed tire, or The company that designed the flawed tire.
It is important to note that in some cases, the motorist whose vehicle had the flawed tire can still face liability for the accident and ensuing damages. When the driver negligently maintained the vehicle and/or did nothing to address the signs of a defective tire, the driver can face liability for the resulting collision.
Recourse Available Following an Accident
A person who has been injured in an accident caused by a flawed tire can pursue a personal injury claim or even a products liability case. When the accident resulted in the death of the victim, a wrongful death lawsuit can be filed on behalf of the victim.
Depending on the type of case filed and the facts of each individual claim, the following forms of compensation may be available: Loss of income and benefits, Medical costs, including future costs, Permanent disability, Loss of relationship, Pain and suffering, Loss of quality of life, Funeral and burial expenses, and Damages to property.
