There could be many possible parties that could be found liable for your Georgia crash and injuries including:
Tire manufacturer. Tires should be designed and manufactured so that tire defects do not occur. For example, ozone cracking shouldn’t occur. This causes cracking in the sidewall of the tire—weakening the tire and leading to a blowout. If something isn’t done correctly during manufacturing, a tire blowout can be the result. If a tire defect was the cause of your crash, you can hold the tire manufacturer liable.
Trucking company and/or truck driver. Truck drivers are supposed to inspect their tires frequently while on the road. Additionally, trucking companies are supposed to make sure their trucks are being maintained to reduce the chance of a Norcross trucking accident. When truck drivers and trucking companies fail to inspect tires routinely, inflate them properly, replace them when they get too old, or maintain the truck properly, they can be found liable for your crash and damages.
Storage Facility. When tires are sitting in a warehouse or yard for long periods of time, they are most likely not being properly cared for, and the storage facility might be liable.
