A tire blowout can lead to serious injuries and even wrongful death for any driver unlucky enough to be involved in an accident with a semi truck, but the danger does not stop there; the driver of the semi truck is also at risk.

In late August, an Ohio truck driver was airlifted to a hospital in critical condition after a tire blowout caused his truck to veer off the road and roll onto its side.

Who Is At Fault in Tire Blowout Accidents?

Tires can blow out for many reasons – debris in the road, over or underfilling them with air and, especially in the case of semi trucks, friction from speed. Not every one of these reasons is foreseeable, but there are cases where a tire failure could have been prevented.

If, for example, the people who loaded the truck put too much weight into it, tires that are not properly calibrated to handle the weight could fail. Additionally, there is potential for manufacturing defects that are impossible to notice during a routine truck inspection. Over the past decade it has become more common for commercial truck companies to outsource services such as tire mounting, tire repair, rim installation and more. It is very possible that the maintenance company is responsible for a tire blowout injury if they did something wrong.

If you have been injured after a tire blowout, it is important to consult a personal injury attorney about your case. An attorney could help you collect critical evidence proving that the tire blowout was the fault of a third party.

The Angry Orchard Cider Company has been experiencing major success in the alcoholic beverage market. It has been so popular that the company is expanding to the United Kingdom, and will start exporting in the fall. However, reports of exploding beer may slow the company's expansion. The FDA has posted a voluntary recall of Angry Orchard's Crisp Apple Hard Cider due to issues that could make opening the bottle unsafe. The issue is caused by a process called refermentation, which happens when a drink ferments for a second time. How Does Refermentation Happen? When making alcoholic beverages, brewers use yeast to break down sugars and turn them into alcohol. To get the flavor they want, brewers have to remove the yeast from the batch at a particular time. If some of that yeast manages to make it into a bottle, it can change the flavor of the beverage, increase alcohol...

A Wolcottville woman was injured in mid-August when the single-engine, two-seat plane she was riding in crashed into a field during the evening 35 miles northeast of Fort Wayne. The woman, a passenger in the plane, was hospitalized after the crash, while the pilot complained of neck pain but was released at the scene. It is miraculous that nobody was seriously hurt or killed in this aviation accident.

Plane Accident Injury Law

The laws regarding aviation accident injuries are split into three main areas: commercial airline accidents, international air disaster fatalities, and non-commercial aviation accidents. The accident listed above would fall into the latter category since the plane was privately owned.

Private plane crashes are governed by general aviation law at both the state and federal level. The federal organizations responsible for investigating these aviation accidents are the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and the National Transportation Safety Administration (NTSA).

When a private plane crashes and causes injuries or wrongful death, victims or their family members are able to file claims in state court against a number of potential defendants. Depending on the cause of the crash, you can seek damages from the owner or operator of the aircraft (in case of pilot negligence), the manufacturer of the airplane parts (in the case of a defective part), those responsible for the aircraft's maintenance or even the supplier of airplane parts.

If you are injured in a private plane crash or lose a loved one, you should speak to a personal injury and wrongful death attorney for a free consultation on your case.
