Vehicle designers and manufacturers are required to abide by certain safety
standards that are intended to protect vehicle occupants in the event
of a collision. Vehicle occupants are susceptible to a number of external
forces during an accident, including rapid acceleration, deceleration,
the angle of impact, and more. A vehicle's crashworthiness describes its
ability to prevent injuries caused by these forces during a collision.
The crashworthiness of a vehicle is something our skilled product liability
attorneys take into account when determining if manufacturing or design
defects are responsible for injuries you or your loved one sustained in
a car or truck accident. With decades of collective experience and relationships
with local and national experts in the fields of accident reconstruction,
engineering, and law enforcement, we're able to assist you in building
a strong case.

Proving Liability Based On Vehicle Crashworthiness
If a vehicle's crashworthiness is inadequate, it can lead to extensive
injuries and even death in the event of a collision. At Hare Wynn, our
product liability lawyers can determine if vehicle crashworthiness played
a role in your injuries.
In determining liability, we look at a variety of factors, including:
- If the vehicle was reasonably safe for users
- The design and manufacture of the vehicle
- If some aspect of the design was avoidable
- If the vehicle design was unreasonably dangerous
- The presence and extent of your injuries
- If the vehicle's crashworthiness contributed to your injuries
Automobile designers and manufacturers have a duty to create vehicles that
are as reasonably safe as possible, considering all aspects of design,
technology, and safety. When they fail to uphold this responsibility,
Hare Wynn is prepared to fight for you. Our product liability lawyers
have earned recognition from numerous national organizations and publications,
Super Lawyers® Magazine, the International Society of Barristers, the American Board of Trial
Advocates, the American College of Trial Lawyers, and many others. Regardless
of how difficult your case may be, our firm is ready to fight for the
fair compensation you are owed.
