Fox 2 News: Tires falling off trucks causing deaths and serious truck accident injuries

November 9, 2010 by Steven M. Gursten

Truck accident attorney says crashes caused by loose tires are almost always completely preventable

Truck accident attorney Steve Gursten was interviewed by Roop Raj from Fox 2 Detroit WJBK News, after a tire flew off of an unmaintained truck, causing a fatal truck crash in metro Detroit. This wrongful death was the latest in a series of similar accidents stemming from tires coming loose from trucks and injuring Michigan drivers.

Gursten told Fox 2 that truck accidents caused by tires falling off trucks are almost always completely preventable.”Several people have lost their lives in recent weeks around Detroit from these truck accidents, but a tire falling off a truck and killing innocent people in traffic is no unforeseen “Act of God” type of event,” Gursten said.  “An accident is when it is no one’s fault. But if a trucking company has a proper maintenance and mechanical inspection program in place, and if a truck driver is doing a proper pre-trip inspection before getting behind the wheel, it’s difficult to imagine how this type of serious truck accident can happen.”

The full story, which appeared on television news, will be posted soon.
