Who is liable for an accident if my son's car passed a state inspection?

Question Details:

My son had an accident on 02/01/10 at approximately 5:30 AM and there were no other cars involved or injuries, but his car suffered about $7K in damages. The car lost control when his back tire blew out and he crashed into a barrier wall. Here's the thing that really bothers me about the whole situation he faces; the car was inspected on 01/23/10 at a car agency and passed both mechanical and emissions required by the state. However, upon examining the tires I found that the rear tires were dry rotted and as the collision adjuster stated was the probable cause of the accident.
