Car Accidents Involving Injury-Proof Cars

Volvo is leading the way to eliminate injury from car accidents by the year 2020. If all goes according to plan, its driver and passengers will escape even the most serious car crash without injury. And Volvo is far from the only player in what experts call the biggest revolution in the auto industry since the seatbelt.

With 1.2 million deaths and 50 million injuries caused by motor vehicle crashes each year, car makers, safety experts and designers want to make injury-proof cars. The Swedish carmaker, now owned by Ford, is the first to set a target date to eliminate car accident death and injury in its cars.

As recently as January, some 77 percent of U.S. consumers polled by Consumer Reports ranked Volvo as the safest car brand. According to Consumer Reports no other brand dominates a category the way safety is owned by Volvo. But other carmakers have learned safety sells and are putting out their own safe credentials. As Orlando car accident lawyers we think this can only improve car safety more quickly. That is a very good thing.

Prevention of needless injury and death from car accidents is an issue that deserves everyone’s attention. Taking the injury out of car accidents is one solid method to address occupant safety. The other is building car crash avoidance into new vehicles. We applaud these approaches by auto makers.
