Some auto accidents involve defective or poorly repaired parts

Each part of a vehicle works with the others in order to keep it moving and operating properly. If certain parts of a vehicle are defective or poorly repaired or maintained, the delicate balance can be upset and lead to motorcycle, truck or auto accidents on Louisiana roadways. The results of these crashes could include severe or fatal injuries to the unsuspecting occupants of these vehicles.

This could be what happened in a recent single-vehicle crash involving a motorcycle. The crash took place on a recent Tuesday morning at around 10:41 a.m. Preliminary reports indicate that the rear tire on the motorcycle failed. When it did, its 56-year-old rider could not maintain control of the vehicle and crashed.

The Louisiana man was thrown off during the accident. He initially survived the wreck, but suffered serious injuries. He was taken to an area hospital for treatment, but his injuries were too great and he later succumbed to them. It could take some time before it becomes clear whether the tire was defective or if another issue caused it to fail.

This could prove to be a crucial part of any potential wrongful death claim that the man's family may choose to pursue. If the failure of the tire was due to the negligence of one or more parties, the family may be entitled to restitution. In order to determine whether such a claim is possible, it would be beneficial to consult with an attorney who handles wrongful death cases in connection with auto accidents.
