Jacksonville Crashworthiness Attorneys

Vehicle Crashworthiness

To be crashworthy means a car has the ability to prevent injuries to the occupants inside the vehicle in the event of an auto accident.

Airbags, seatbelts, side curtains, and crumple zones are all examples of crashworthiness features that prevent or minimize the forces of a collision on the bodies of the passengers from a secondary collision when the person strikes the inside of a vehicle.

A vehicle with features that make it crashworthy may mean the difference between someone who stays safe inside a car during a collision or who is ejected, suffers a collision with the dashboard or the roof, or is burned in a fire that ensues.

Farah & Farah understands how to present a crashworthiness accident case in Florida. The defects present in the vehicle which led to the serious injuries can include a design defect, a manufacturing defect, or a failure to warn.

Manufacturing Defect

A design defect can include an airbag that does not inflate or is not included in the vehicle

Design Defect

This can include a roof that crushes into the occupant’s head or fuel tank that explodes in an accident

Failure to Warn

A manufacturer can be held liable if it fails to warn the purchasing public of some aspect of the vehicle it knew to be dangerous

A Jacksonville auto product liability lawyer can seek compensation for:

  • Past, current and future estimated medical expenses
  • Time lost from work
  • Time going to doctor appointments
  • Property damage, including your vehicle
  • The cost of hiring someone to help with household chores
  • Any permanent disfigurement or disability
  • Anxiety, depression, emotional distress and disrupted family relationships

What Do I Need to File a Jacksonville Crashworthiness Lawsuit?

Evidence needed to file a crashworthiness lawsuit would include a biochemical analysis on just how the occupants moved inside the vehicle during the crash. An attorney must determine how the interior of the vehicle made contact with the occupant, whether the dashboard, windshield, or pillars. What happened after the collision has a bearing on your case and the type of compensation we can pursue.

When a vehicle design or manufacturing is defective, the companies responsible are liable. In some cases, punitive damages can be sought in some cases. Occupants who have been hurt in vehicles, who thought the structure of the car would protect them and later found it was not crashworthy, should contact a personal injury attorney at Farah & Farah.
