Q: Who could be responsible for my Atlanta truck accident injuries if the crash was caused by a truck tire blowout?
A:When a tire blows out on a big rig, the truck may lose control and end up colliding with a car. Such a collision can cause significant injuries or death, but who is responsible for the tire blowout?
Typically, an investigation will need to be conducted by your Atlanta auto accident lawyer, and others, to determine the cause of the crash. In some cases, the tire manufacturer may be responsible because the tire was defective. In other cases, the trucking company may be responsible for failing to provide the tractor trailer with a safe tire, for failing to maintain the tires, or failing to inspect the tires prior to the blowout. Finally, it is possible that the truck driver is responsible for the crash. For example, if the driver knew there was a problem with the tire and kept driving, or if the driver was speeding or not driving safely in some other way at the time of the crash, then the driver could be responsible for the resulting crash.
