My Wheel Came Off After My Car Was Serviced. Who is Responsible for the Accident?

After having her tires rotated on her SUV, the front wheel came off a viewer’s vehicle while driving. It caused her to crash, injuring her. Can the mechanic be held responsible? Car accident attorneys Greg Fellerman and Ed Ciarimboli explain.

Dave Kuharchik: Time again for “The Law & You” featuring the area’s premier attorneys Ed Ciarimboli and Greg Fellerman. Good to see you guys.

Ed Ciarimboli: Seven Days.

Dave: Seven days.

Ed: Seven days. Seven Days until…

Greg Fellerman: Can you wear a Christmas hat this year on “The Law & You?” Can we have three Christmas hats? I’m in the mood.

Ed: I’ll wear a Christmas hat, yeah. I’m telling you-

Dave: We have a couple in the newsroom.

Greg: I think we should do it.

Ed: I need some Christmas socks.

Dave: There you go. You’ve go the snowman socks?

Ed: No, I’ve got tacos on.

Dave: I saw red and green and thought Santa but nope, tacos. Here’s our question tonight on “The Law & You” as the holiday season approaches. Jeanette in Dushore says, “I recently had a basic service done on my SUV including a tire rotation. One day after the service, my front wheel came off the vehicle while driving down the road. I crashed my car and I was injured. Whose responsibility is it?” I think I know here, but what do you guys think?

Ed: Who do you think, Dave?

Dave: Well, you’ve got to go after the service. That’s why you’ve got to get your car professionally serviced.

Greg: We’ve had these cases.

Ed: This one’s a no brainier. Go after the service center. That’s it. It’s that simple. They’re going to be responsible. They didn’t do their job properly which then caused the tire to come off and cause you to get hurt. The shop should have liability insurance, this should be covered. This one’s pretty cut and dry.

Greg: I agree. Want to talk about your socks more?

Ed: They’re taco socks.

Dave: The red and green of taco on Ed’s socks today. In the event that something like that happens, luckily this woman doesn’t seem to be seriously injured -but it could’ve been worse- , if you need the help from an attorney; If you are injured in an accident, how can they reach you?

Greg: Give us a call 570-714-HURT. See us on the web at We have offices in Scranton, Wilkes Barre, Philadelphia. We’re around.

Ed: Pay attention next week, I’m going to have different Christmas socks on every day.

Dave: Won’t be tacos?

Ed: Won’t be tacos.

Dave: That’s good news.

Ed: Nut crackers, Santa Clause, Elves, all of the above.

Dave: Lots of options. Results matter with attorneys Greg Fellerman and Ed Ciarimboli. Guys thanks we’ll see you next time. and “The Law & You” hotline are there for you.
