Birmingham Tire Defects Attorneys
Tire defects on an 18-wheeler truck may cause extremely dangerous accidents involving numerous other motorists. The suddenness of a tire blowout or loss of control can cause a truck to make sudden movements, such as pulling to the side or jackknifing, potentially striking another motorist or a pedestrian. Unfortunately, the injuries these collisions often cause may prove very severe in many cases due to the immense size of the truck.
As maintaining properly working tires or producing tires that function properly is the responsibility of the trucking company and the tire manufacturing company, respectively, the legal team at Yearout & Traylor, P.C., believes that these parties should be held liable when tire defects cause accidents in Birmingham. Through this legal process, victims of such accidents can receive the just compensation they need to recover.
The Hazards of Tire Defects
Accidents from tire defects are often particularly destructive due to the massive size and high speed at which an 18-wheeler is often traveling on the highway. In fact, tire defects can easily cause the following types of collisions:
- Side collisions
- Rear-ending accidents
- A jackknife accident
The injuries caused by these accidents are often extremely severe in nature and may prove fatal, for both the truck driver and other people involved. Those injured, or their household, may be burdened with heavy financial concerns due to medical costs and other expenses from these injuries. However, legal action may be available to pursue compensation for these costs.
