A recreational vehicle (RV) was involved in a single vehicle accident this weekend as it was traveling south on I-95 in St. Johns County when the right front tire blew out. The driver lost control of the RV, which veered off the highway and crashed into several trees. Both the driver and a passenger sufferred personal injuries and the passenger was taken to Shands Jacksonville Medical Center.
Sometimes tires can fail due to excessive wear. Other times blow outs are the result of a manufacturing defect and can lead to a product liability case for personal injuries. Such cases are very expensive as one or more expert witnesses are needed to analyze the tire to determine the cause of its failure.
If you have a tire blowout or vehicle rollover case it is important to hire an attorney with the experience and financial ability to thoroughly pursue your case. It may be important that the attorney you hire be willing to front all costs of expert witnesses, as such expenses can easily exceed $25,000.00.
