Study Highlights Greater Risks for Front-Seat SUV Passengers

The New York Times reports that tests by the nonprofit Insurance Institute for Highway Safety found that front-seat passengers in SUVs may face higher risks in a crash than in other vehicles. The Times points out that the findings of this study are important “because more than 1,600 passengers in the right front seats of vehicles of all types died in frontal crashes in 2014, according to the federal government’s fatality data.” The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety explained that it is “aware that automakers were focusing their initial safety improvement efforts on the driver’s side of vehicles – given that there is always a driver in the car, but not necessarily a front-seat passenger.” Several car companies covered in the study responded noting that they would look into the details of the study.

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...)
