Is your vehicle capable of keeping you safe?

Cars are much safer now than they used to be, and more people are living through serious car crashes than ever before, thanks in part to safer vehicles. Over the last few decades, regulations, research and technology have led to increased safety measures in newer vehicles.

Even a few decades ago, manufacturers designed vehicles in a way that made it more likely that the vehicle itself would survive a serious crash, not necessarily the driver or any passengers. Even though cars are safer than ever before, this does not mean that negligent Florida drivers cannot cause harm or that defective car parts won't bring serious injuries to innocent motorists.

The protections your car should provide

Over the years, manufacturers have put several safety measures in place that make it less likely that a driver or passenger will suffer serious injuries in the event of an accident. These safety features include some of the following:

  • Better safety belts
  • Frame built as part of car itself
  • Crush zones that displace the force of an impact
  • Features that can slow the speed of a crash
  • Technology that can detect hazards
  • Side and front airbags
  • Higher quality, safer tires

These features are great news for consumers and Tampa motorists, but it means that cars are now more expensive to repair than before. Even minor damage can result in repair bills amounting in the hundreds or thousands of dollars.

In some cases, mechanics may not replace parts appropriately or may use less-than-ideal parts in order to lower the overall cost of repairing vehicles. Whether it is a mechanic or the manufacturer, cutting corners is unacceptable. Anything that could compromise the safety of the people inside the vehicle could be considered negligence, and innocent drivers and passengers could suffer.

Fighting for your right to safety

Manufacturers are accountable for faulty car parts, poor design and malfunctioning equipment. With all of the safety features now available in vehicles across all price ranges, there is no reason for innocent motorists to suffer because of an issue with basic safety features. If you believe that you are the victim of an auto manufacturer's negligence, you have the right to know your legal options.

Additionally, you do not have to suffer because of the reckless actions of another driver. Regardless of the reason for your accident, you may find it beneficial to seek a full evaluation of your case. It may be appropriate for you to seek compensation through a personal injury claim.
