Car Accidents and Collision Avoidance Technologies

Automatic braking and other speed-limiting technologies may help drivers avoid rear-end collisions, while lane-departure warnings can help drivers avoid accidents while changing lanes. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, these technologies are not always standard in vehicles. In some cases, they are not even required to help a vehicle meet safety requirements.

The National Transportation Safety Board recommends that these technologies be mandated in as many vehicles as possible to help maximize their life-saving ability. Placing electronic stability systems in cars could reduce accidents caused by a driver’s loss of control by 40 percent for cars and 70 percent for SUVs. If installed in commercial vehicles, this technology could result in over 4,000 traffic accidents being avoided each year.

Drivers, passengers, or pedestrians who are hurt in a car accident may be able to take action against the driver who caused the accident. It may be possible to win compensation for expenses like medical bills and long-term care costs. An injured party may be able to pursue compensation with the help of a personal injury attorney. An attorney may be able to provide physical evidence that driver negligence caused an accident with injuries to occur.

Wonderful law firm that cares

I was injured in a terrible fall which left my foot, arm back and knee badly bruised. The Dozier Law Firm was awesome. Attorney Dustin Hamilton reviewed and accepted my case and within a few months he was able to settle my case for more than I ever imagine. The Dozier Law Firm is A+ in my book.
