Defective tire crash injury cases – Pop Quiz on Car on Truck Tire Safety

Ford_on_trailer.jpegDefective products, especially those that find their way into our cars and trucks, can cause devastating and permanent injuries.  While not all of us drive cars as old as the one shown to the left, even newer tires can separate, leave the manufacturing plant with defects or be unsafe for other reasons. So, here is a quiz I saw in the Florida Bar newspaper:

Question: Which of these tires can put you or your loved ones at risk for a tread separation due to their age ?

  1. The unused spare tire
  2. Tires over 6 years old
  3. Old tires with good treads
  4. All of the above

The correct answer is #4.  If you or someone you know has been injured in a car or truck crash and there defective automotive products, issues of product misuse and abuse or unsafe tires as a cause, please contact us at once at 703-796-9555.

    4. Skidsteers often do not have much reach when they are dumping their bucket so you can only load trucks from one side. Skid steers need to drive around the other side of the truck or trailer to load it. The centre of gravity of the load of skidsteers is often kept as close to the skidsteer as possible, this maximizes lift capacity which is particularly crucial when operating from a very short wheelbase, as it cannot handle much weight out the front. Articulated mini loaders can load trailers from one side as they REACH onto the opposite side saving time, diesel and in urban areas you don’t have to venture onto the road, which saves a lot time. This is possible as mini loaders often have more reach than skidsteers, allowing them to work much quicker at filling trailers.
