Accidents, Injuries Reported as a Result of False Activation of Emergency Automatic Braking Systems in Various Cars

CBS News reports, “Automatic emergency braking will be standard in most cars in 2022.” The technology is “expected to cut the number of rear-end crashes in half, but hundreds of drivers say sometimes the system slams on the brakes – apparently for no reason.” CBS News “found reports of several accidents and injuries that drivers blamed on false activations of emergency automatic braking systems.” Safety advocates and carmakers “say in the vast majority of cases it works, but it is not perfect.” According to CBS News, the NHTSA is “investigating the 2017 and 2018 [Nissan] Rogue after learning of nearly 850 complaints of false activation of the SUV’s automatic braking system.” Since 2015 “there have been seven recalls for auto-braking issues, affecting nearly 180,000 vehicles.” There are “more than half a million Nissan Rogues subject to the NHTSA investigation.”

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...)
