A: I assume you mean you had a tire blowout. If so, so you still have the tire? You'll have to prove that your crash was the fault of someone other than you. There are tire defects sometimes but you would need to have the tire examined by an expert. Good luck.

A: TO WIN AN ACCIDENT CASE YOU HAVE TO PROVE THE NEGLIGENCE WAS THE FAULT OF SOMEONE ELSE AND THAT YOU WERE INJURED.

A: If it's someone else's vehicle you may have an easier claim but would still need the blow out. If the car is in a salvage yard and you have it's vin, pretty much any salvage yard may be able to find it.

Second you may have a "crashworthiness claim" depending on circumstances. You should be able to find the name of a "crashworthiness" member of CAOC. If not, give me a call and I'll dig up some names. However they ultimately would have to locate the vechicle so see if it can be found.
