When a part or system on a car breaks down at highway speeds, or the seat belts or air bags fail to provide protection in an accident, the most serious injuries and death can occur. In most bus, car, truck, motorcycle or truck accidents, one or both drivers may be responsible for causing the accident.
When an auto defect is the cause, injuries can result despite every safety precaution taken by the drivers and passengers involved. These types of accidents and injuries just aren’t supposed to happen.

In injury claims related to motor vehicle crashes, there are extensive studies that can be used to determine the types and extent of injuries that often result from collisions. Certain types of injuries can reveal when a seat belt, an air bag or a seat back failed, resulting in more serious injuries (or death) than would otherwise have occurred.
