A California woman was recently released from the hospital after a motorcycle accident which caused injuries which resulted in the amputation of her leg. The accident occurred when a wheel came off a pick up truck owned by a business and struck her. The driver told investigating officers that the tire that came off was a spare that he had installed three days prior to the accident.As experienced Chicago personal injury lawyers, one thing that we do to investigate serious personal injury accidents is to identify all of the potential sources of recovery. In this case, the truck which the wheel came off of was a business vehicle and the tire was installed by a business employee. This means that the business will bear some liability for the accident and its insurance policy will be one source of compensation for the injured motorcycle rider. We would also recommend trying to recover the remains of the tire that came off the pick up and the lug nuts to determine whether there were defects in the design of the tire or the manufacture of it and its component parts.This woman suffered serious injuries which calls for the services of attorneys who are careful to identify all sources of recovery for their clients.
