What are the standards in determining the crashworthiness of a vehicle?
Crashworthiness is the ability of a vehicle to prevent injuries to the occupants in the event of a collision. Crashworthiness deals primarily with the secondary collision in which the driver and passengers collide against the interior of the vehicle. The cause of the accident is usually considered irrelevant in crashworthiness cases.
Two important questions to consider when determining crashworthiness are:
- Could the vehicle occupants have fared better?
- Could some feature that was lacking in the vehicle have reduced the occupants' injuries?
Crashworthiness cases typically involve injuries that are sustained as a result of a defect in a vehicle. There are three types of product defects that can lead to injury:
- Manufacturing defects—where injury occurs when there is a flaw in the manufacturing process. For example, failure to include an airbag when the design calls for it is a manufacturing defect.
- Design defects—where injury occurs when a vehicle is unsafe because of the manufacturer's design. For example, a fuel tank placed in a location that makes it likely to explode upon impact is a design defect.
- Failure to warn—where injury occurs when the manufacturer is aware of a dangerous aspect of a vehicle but fails to warn or provide adequate warning to consumers.
Our crashworthiness attorneys can help recover for you
Parties hurt in car accidents where the automobile manufacturer has failed to produce a crashworthy vehicle by selling vehicles with defective or faulty components should contact an experienced crashworthiness attorney to evaluate the situation and determine if a lawsuit can be brought against negligent manufacturers.

My dad referred me to this office after he used him for an accident because of the positive experience that he had. Although the experience of my accident was less than thrilling, Davis and his office took very good care of me and got my case settled quickly. I would definitely recommend Davis Smith!
Davis Smith and associates are a blessing. If his office didn't pay for me to have my surgery (ACL replacement) I would still be waiting on it. This man strives to ensure that all his clients receive the best medical care on his dime. The office worked very hard for me. THANK YOU DAVIS W. SMITH FOR ALL THAT YOUVE DONE FOR THE COMMUNITY AND ME!
I called after hours to set up an initial consultation and if dealing with the office is as easy as dealing with the answering service I really look forward to the experience. Typically answering services are very difficult but the one that they have representing them is excellent
Staff was nice and made the process easy. I was also pleasantly surprised at the amount of my check. the wreck wasn't much fun, but if it happens again, I'll definitely go back.
My parents and I hired the gorilla and he worked hard on our case. He settled our case and it was the best experience. I would definitely recommend him.
I was in a head on collision and suffered a compound fracture. Not sure what to do and unable to walk I decided to contact the Gorilla law office. Davis graciously came to my home to visit me and assured me he would help me get everything taken care of. It was quite a process but Davis fought for me and my case did settle for a lump sum. Would definitely recommend.
Mr. Smith and his staff helped me when I was involved in my accident. He was able to settle my case quickly. Thanks.
This is my lawyer and his tactics are bad and he's got great customer service and a great staff and I would recommend them to anyone and I just signed him on as my lawyer
Can't say anything bad about this good man. He helped me out even though it took some time. Got what I deserved and was always keeping me updated on the case. 5 star to his secretaries and himself. Thanks Gorilla man.
