Why This Case Matters
According to current safety standards, car manufacturers are tasked with creating safe vehicles for consumers. When a minor accident results in catastrophic injuries, the safety and crashworthiness of the vehicle becomes a legitimate concern. Crashworthiness cases involve the automobile manufacturer failing to take precautions that reduce the likelihood of injuries resulting from common traffic accidents. When the man’s family came to us, we took this case because a moderate rear impact like he experienced should not have resulted in such debilitating injuries.
