There are many types of car accident injuries that victims suffer. These injuries range in severity, and heavily influence the value of a car accident claim. More severe injuries can increase a victim’s losses, and have a long-term effect on his or her life. It’s important to be aware of the impact of car accident injuries and what kind of compensation those injuries qualify for when starting a claim. 
Car accident settlement amounts depend on factors such as the insurance coverage held by the motorists involved, liability, and the severity of the injuries and property damage. However, other factors may also play a role. For example, punitive damages may be calculated in a settlement if the other party was acting recklessly and in conscious disregard to others.
If you were injured in a trucking accident in Chicago, Berwyn, Oak Lawn, Cicero, or a nearby community, call the injury attorneys at Lloyd Miller Law for a free consultation.

Car Accidents: Is a Tire Blow-Out a Foreseeable Event or Not?

Posted By:

Car Accidents: Is a tire blow-out a foreseeable event or not? Manufacturers know that tire tread will wear with proper use and at some point fail if not serviced properly and replaced when the warranty and/or the intended period of use has expired. It is the duty of the tire owner to follow the manufacturers’ recommendations for maintenance, repair and replacement and personal injuries from car accidents resulting from owner neglect will not be compensable by the manufacturer of the tires.

But what is the tire blow-out was not foreseeable? Tire tread separation can certainly be the manufacturer’s fault when they are caused by bonding problems in the manufacturing process, contaminants introduced into the tire during the tire making process, under-vulcanized, old ingredients, improperly sized components or something as random as air trapped between the layers of the tire during the manufacturing process.

The results can be catastrophic resulting in collisions and in many cases, rollovers. In one case a rear tire tread separation caused the vehicle to go out of control. The vehicle rolled over resulting in the deaths of the two passengers who were killed despite being properly seat belted.
