Is Your Vehicle Safe? The Rothenberg Law Firm LLP Explains New Crashworthiness Test
Date:8/27/2013

ess, in 2012, the IIHS introduced the small overlap frontal test. This new small overlap frontal test is “Designed to replicate what happens when the front corner of a vehicle collides with another vehicle or an object like a tree or a utility pole.” In other words, this new crash test provides a greater challenge for certain seat belt, airbag and structural systems.

When it comes to this recently introduced small overlap frontal test, disturbingly, modern vehicles may not provide as much protection as one would like to think. Small overlap frontal crashes mostly affect the outer edges of a vehicle, and these are not well protected by the crush-zone structures. In fact, these studies show that crash forces can “go directly into the front wheel, suspension system and firewall,” which can cause significant intrusion into a vehicle’s occupant compartment. Simply put, the small overlap frontal test shows that vehicle occupants can sustain serious leg and foot injuries at even relatively low crash speeds.

It is important for consumers to understand “crashworthiness” testing. The results of “crashworthiness” testing can provide an understanding of the potential injuries that vehicle occupants may sustain during accidents while seated in certain vehicles. Therefore, the injury advocates at the Rothenberg Law Firm LLP hope that consumers will pay more attention to their vehicle’s safety rating before purchasing, leasing or even riding in certain vehicles.

Individuals injured in a car accident may be eligible for damages based on one’s vehicle’s crashworthiness. In some cases, the crashworthiness of a vehicle may allow an injured person to file a claim against the vehicle manufacturer for injuries sustained in an accident. When considering crashworthiness, it is important to think about whether a vehicle manufacturer designed that car and its features to be safe under the force of an auto crash.
