Consumer-Friendly Language in National Highway Traffic Safety Regulation

Lawyers USA reported that the American Association for Justice “praised language in a new regulation published by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration that departs from the stance on federal preemption of state law asserted under the Bush administration.” While “NHTSA noted that express or implied preemption of state laws exists in limited circumstances under federal law and under Supreme Court precedent, it went on to state that it does ‘not currently foresee any potential state requirements that might conflict with [the regulation].'” Gerie Voss, director for regulatory affairs at the AAJ, said, “The language in the new regulation is much better for consumers.” Voss said, “‘The agency, under the Obama administration, is stating that it does not foresee any potential state requirement that would conflict with it’ and create a preemption issue. ‘This is a complete change from the previous administration.'”

About This Blog

The title of this blog reflects my attitude toward those government agencies and insurance companies that routinely mistreat injured or disabled people. As a Dallas, Texas lawyer, I've spent more than 45 years trying to help those poor folk, and I have been frustrated daily by the actions of the people on the other side of their claims. (Sorry if I offended you...)
