Massachusetts Tire Defects Attorneys
Commercial trucking companies have an obligation to maintain the safety systems on their vehicles in order to protect their drivers and other individuals on the roadways at all times. Because of the size and weight of these large trucks, the potential damage they can cause in an accident is much higher than collisions involving smaller vehicles. When individuals and companies fail to ensure high standards of quality and performance on the tires of semi-trucks, the consequences are often devastating.
At Crowe & Mulvey, LLP, our Massachusetts tire defect attorneys can help you identify the responsible parties whose actions led to your truck accident and take aggressive against them in order to seek compensation for your unnecessary suffering.
Liability for Tire Defects
Unfortunately, there are a number of potential defects that can affect the integrity of tires on 18-wheelers. Various parties will be responsible for ensuring that a truck’s tires are not over- or under-filled, are not too old, will not lose traction in certain conditions, are rotated regularly, and so on. Just a few of the different parties who could be responsible for ensuring and maintaining properly functioning tires are:
- The truck driver
- The trucking company
- The tire manufacturer
Every truck tire should be inspected by enough individuals and with enough regularity that no defect goes unnoticed. Sadly, there are still plenty of opportunities for oversight in the system, and accidents happen far too often as a result of faulty tires.
