A semi-truck was driving in front of me near Indianapolis when one of its tires blew out. The tire tread flew up and struck my windshield and caused me to run off the road and sustain injuries. Is the truck at fault?

This is a good example of the complexity of truck accidents. A number of different parties may be liable after a tire de-treads or blows out and causing injures to others. A truck accident lawyer will investigate to determine whether the trucking company has current records showing routine maintenance of the vehicle, including replacement of worn tires. If the tire was on the truck trailer and the trailer had a different owner, the trailer owner may be responsible. If the tire is found to be defective, the manufacturer of the tire may be liable as well. It is important to identify all the potentially responsible parties involved in a truck accident.
