A Palm Beach Car Wreck Attorney Discusses Automobile Safety
The majority of car wrecks in Palm Beach and throughout Florida are caused by the carelessness or negligence of drivers. When drivers make bad decisions or are distracted at the wheel, they can cause serious accidents and injuries.
Automobile manufacturers have to try to minimize the harm caused to drivers and passengers involved in a car accident. This is the case even if the wreck was the cause of someone’s bad actions, such as:
- Falling asleep at the wheel
- Failure to obey traffic signals
- Participation in distracted driving and texting while driving
When a driver causes an accident due to one of those actions, it is the job of the automobile manufacturer to make sure the car is as safe as possible in the event of a side impact, rear-end crash, or head-on collision.
Automobile manufacturers have done a great job over the years improving crumple zones and introducing safety features like airbags and energy-absorbing materials. And automobile safety ratings over the last several years have shown a significant improvement. However, some Palm Beach accidents are caused by conditions beyond the control of the driver, as there are sometimes vehicle defects in manufacturing or design.
If you believe your car accident was the result of a defective tire or other mechanical defect, you may have a claim against the automobile manufacturer.
