Dallas Crashworthiness Lawyers

There are two aspects of your car, truck, SUV or other vehicle that influence your chance of suffering serious injury in a collision: the likelihood that your vehicle will crash and the design features that are supposed to protect you in the event of an accident. In auto industry terms, crashworthiness is your vehicle's ability to protect you and the other occupants in the event of an accident.

The Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards (FMVSS) set benchmarks for automobile crashworthiness. Unfortunately, the American auto industry has successfully diverted or delayed any effort to update crashworthiness standards in a substantial way since the 1970s.

The skilled trial lawyers of Miller Weisbrod, LLP, can help you hold negligent auto manufacturers such as Ford, General Motors, DaimlerChrysler and others to account for their failure to provide safe vehicles.

How Crashworthiness Is Tested

Auto industry tests crashworthiness in rollover and roof crush accidents by turning a vehicle upside down in a laboratory setting and gently setting the vehicle on its roof. Hardly a real-world scenario. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has long advocated raising the standards for crashworthiness in rollover and roof crush accidents in real-world situations, but the automakers have resisted all such attempts thus far.
