Crash Data Collected by Various Car Manufacturers Has Made Cars Safer

The New York Times reports that in Sweden, Volvo has “dispatched its own crash-scene investigators since the early 1970s.” The automaker is “not alone in sending investigators to crash sites, but it pioneered the practice.” Today, several manufacturers “take a similar approach to glean valuable real-world information on what happens to vehicles and their occupants after a crash.” Volvo “occasionally takes possession of cars for further study and may ask occupants to complete confidential questionnaires or sit for interviews.” The Times highlights the fact that “the crash data collected by Volvo and other brands has made cars safer.” The NHTSA estimates that “there were 8.41 deaths per 100 million vehicle miles traveled in 1947.” That rate has “plummeted to 1.16 deaths, the latest figure available, by 2017.”

From the news release of the American Association for Justice.

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...)
