Every year thousands of vehicle fatalities occur -- people are killed and hundreds of thousands more are injured as the result of serious vehicle accidents.
Motor vehicles must be designed to be safe in foreseeable auto accidents. Crashworthiness refers to the protection that a motor vehicle provides drivers and passengers in a car accident. While the laws may vary from state to state, a manufacturer has a legal duty to design its vehicle to be crashworthy. The manufacturer of a non-crashworthy vehicle is responsible for the extent to which a defect worsened a passenger's injuries. This means that manufacturers must design vehicles with the understanding that auto accidents do happen. In some instances, injuries would have been minimal or avoided entirely if the vehicle had been designed safely.
Innocent people suffer the most
from vehicles that were not properly designed.
