Georgia Couple Injured In Motorcycle Accident When Rear Tire Blew

Motorcycle riders are especially vulnerable to serious injury or death when involved in an accident with a careless driver. While many drivers fault the motorcyclist, we at the Finch McCranie firm know that most motorcycle operators are responsible, cautious individuals. Defective tires, or design problems with the motorcycle itself, can also cause a motorcyclist to crash. In such cases, the victims may have a viable products liabilty case against the manufacturer of the product.
Just last week a Georgia couple was injured in Tennessee when the rear tire of their motorcycle blew. Stephanie Rasmussen of Hoschton, Georgia, a passenger on the motorcycle was flown to Vanderbilt Medical Center and her husband, Kevin Rasmussen, was transported to Harton Regional Medical Center.
Whether the rear tire of the motorcycle was defective is unknown; however, given the injuries, an inspection of the tire by an expert may be warranted. In our experience, a qualified tire expert can determine the cause of the tire failure. For this reason, in all cases of suspected tire failure, the tire and rim assebly should be preserved.
