Orlando Car Accident Attorney Confronts Crashworthiness Defenses
We see horrific crash scenes involving our clients and their families. Individuals hire us because of our specialization and our resources to quickly and diligently pursue wrongdoers to obtain the justice they deserve. In Orlando auto accident cases where the injury is serious or death results, we evaluate the circumstances closely for potential enhancement of injury due to the vehicle’s design.
We recognize the importance of the crashworthiness doctrine depending on the circumstances of the crash. That is, the law places certain responsibilities on car, truck and SUV manufacturers to ensure that motor vehicles are reasonably safe. This standard also requires the design to consider the fact that people have collisions. So, a reasonable design will include certain safety features to provide a certain level of occupant protection.
Obviously, auto makers dislike being held accountable for injury and harm caused by poor design or lack of vehicular testing. Therefore, the defendants in these crashworthiness cases want to focus the juries’ attention on the at-fault driver rather than the poor design of its vehicles. If the defendant auto maker can focus on the other driver’s fault for causing the wreck, it may be able to limit its degree of responsibility for its unsafe vehicle design. That is why you need very experienced counsel in these cases.
If you or someone you know has been involved in a serious vehicular impact and suffered injury, we would like to help. Often there is inadequate insurance coverage for the most severe and permanent harm; and, it is important to have a specialist review your circumstances as soon as possible.
