Rollover Crash on Fair Oaks Boulevard Results in Injury
A single-vehicle rollover crash in Carmichael involving a pickup on March 21 resulted in the hospitalization of one person with moderate injuries. The accident happened along Fair Oaks Boulevard, close to El Camino Avenue, around 2:00 a.m. An initial investigation of the incident by the California Highway Patrol (CHP) stated that one of the pickup’s tires was lost, which caused the motorist to lose control.
Pickup Demolished by Rollover Crash
The pickup struck a street light and then rolled over a number of times before ending up in a liquor store parking lot. One person inside the vehicle had to be extricated from the vehicle. No information was provided on the extent of injuries to the driver. An investigation by the CHP into the incident will determine exactly what happened.
Accidents Involving a Defective Tire Can Cause a Rollover Crash
There are a number of factors that can contribute to a single-vehicle crash, including defective tire manufacturing, which can lead to a rollover. Weak spots in the tire can cause a blowout, resulting in the driver losing control of the vehicle. Tires can be assessed by an expert in manufacturing mistakes to look for defects. Although drivers are responsible for maintaining their tires, those that are poorly designed or that have defects are the manufacturer’s responsibility. In addition to the manufacturer, retailers and anyone else involved in the sale of the tire, an auto product liability lawsuit can be filed against them as well.
Personal Injury Damages in a Product Liability Case
In a product liability case, a plaintiff has the right to recover personal injury damages due to the rollover crash. Personal injury damages are designed to compensate the injured party for any physical and emotional harm from the defective product. These damages can include medical bills, pain and suffering, lost wages, emotional distress and other losses associated with the injury.
