Crashworthiness means the resistance, or safety elements, a vehicle has after it has been involved in a car accident. Automobiles that cause injury after an accident are not crashworthy and can be defective. If this defect caused the accident or injury, then the automobile’s manufacturer needs to be held accountable.
According to the U.S. Department of Trans-portation’s National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), there are 6.5 million auto accidents a year, 3 million of those causing injuries, and 40,000 of them fatal. Sadly, motor vehicle accidents cause a death every 15 minutes. Most at risk are the elderly or the new young drivers. The main causes of an injury incurred from inside the vehicle are from the steering wheel, instrument panel, doors, windshield, roof, and glove box.
