In some car crashes, seatbacks can collapse and cause severe injury, including paralysis and death. Sadly, car manufacturers have known about this danger for decades and have not corrected the problem. Even cars with 5-star safety ratings may not be safe for you or the children sitting behind you.
Watch CBS This Morning’s investigative report on this hidden danger, which explains the danger to adults and children alike and tells the tragic stories of the survivors of these types of crashes.
Current safety testing standards are not adequate to prevent these car defects from entering the marketplace, and consumers have no way of knowing whether their car will keep them safe in rear-end collisions.
At The Gilbert Law Group®, our attorneys represent victims of accidents like these. We not only want to get the injured the compensation they need for recovery and care, but we also want our cases to change the industry’s safety standards to keep all families safe from these tragic and preventable injuries.
