This Fort Lauderdale Backover Car Accident Attorney Helps People Injured by Vehicles

Fort Lauderdale Backover Car Accident AttorneyShould you or a loved one be run over by a vehicle driving in reverse, contact this Fort Lauderdale Backover Car Accident Lawyer today. A backover car accident results when a vehicle driving in reverse either hits a pedestrian or another vehicle. Such a crash can cause severe injuries.

If a vehicle hits another vehicle while driving in reverse, that vehicle will typically be found to be at fault. This is especially true if the vehicle that was hit wasn’t moving.

Vehicles driving in reverse are at high risk to hit other vehicles or pedestrians because it may be difficult for the driver to see behind their vehicle. They may be looking in the rear-view mirror, which doesn’t always give the best view. Or they may be blocked by a blind-spot. Finally, they may be using a camera that shows the rear-view of the vehicle. However, these cameras aren’t always working and may malfunction.

Many back-over accidents happen in driveways. Unfortunately, many of these accidents involve children. This is because drivers of vehicles driving in reverse may not be able to see shorter children behind their vehicles. If this occurs, the vehicles may hit the children.

If your child was hit by a vehicle driving in reverse, you will typically pursue the case on behalf of your child (a child can’t technically sue or be sued in the State of Florida). If the case settles, the settlement may need to be approved by a Judge before any money can be disbursed.

If it can be proved that the backover car wreck occurred due to a defective vehicle camera, then you may be able to pursue an automobile products liability case. This case would be against either the manufacturer, distributor or entity that maintained the vehicle.

The case would be against the vehicle manufacturer if it could be shown that the vehicle (in particular the camera) remained unchanged from the time it left the manufacturer’s hands. On the other hand, if the vehicle/camera was changed after the time it left the manufacturer’s hands, then the case will be against either the distributor or entity responsible for maintenance of the vehicle (whichever entity made the change).

If a vehicle driving in reverse hits a pedestrian, it will typically be found that the driver of the vehicle was at fault (as opposed to the pedestrian). This is true unless the pedestrian was in a place that he or she wasn’t supposed to be (e.g., in the road outside of a crosswalk). If the pedestrian was in place that he or she was allowed to be and the vehicle backs into them, then the driver of the vehicle will typically be found to be at-fault.
