When seatbacks fail to remain upright during an accident and fall backwards, vehicle occupants may come out of their seatbelts and become loose inside of their vehicles.
When roofs “crush”-in on the occupants of their vehicles, serious brain, head and neck injuries can result.
Vehicles are meant to be “crashworthy.” That is, they are supposed to be built to withstand serious collisions and protect their occupants. After all, it is anticipated that unavoidably many vehicles will be involved in accidents after they are built. Car and truck manufacturers are aware of this and should build their vehicles to be prepared for this. If they don’t, they may be liable for any injuries that may result.This South Florida Accidents Caused by Manufacturing Defects Law Firm Gives Tips to those Involved in Collisions
For example, vehicle manufacturers should build their vehicles to protect the passenger compartment. That is, while the rest of a vehicle may “crumple” during an accident, the passenger compartment (the portion of the vehicle that holds people) should remain intact. Additionally, the rear or back of vehicles typically is made to crumple like an accordion in case of a rear-end car accident. If it doesn’t do this and the passenger compartment is affected instead, the vehicle manufacturer may be liable for any injuries that result.
Additionally vehicle roofs are designed to withstand roll-over car accidents. That is, when a vehicle “rolls over,” its roof should remain firm and not cave-in. If it does cave in, then it may make contact with occupants’ heads and cause catastrophic injuries. If a vehicle’s roof does cave in during a roll-over car crash, then the manufacturer of the vehicle may be liable because the vehicle failed the “crashworthiness” test.
If you’ve been injured in a car accident due to a vehicle’s defects, it will be important to determine when the defects were created. If they were created during the manufacturing of the vehicle, then it will typically be the vehicle manufacturer that will be responsible. On the other hand, if changes were made to the vehicle after it left the manufacturer’s hands, then the liable party will be whichever entity made the changes (e.g. a distributor, a mechanic, whoever maintained the vehicle, etc.).To Talk to this Broward County Accidents Caused by Manufacturing Defects Attorney/Lawyer, Dial 786-294-7711
