How Can Back-Up Cameras Reduce Car Accident Injuries?
Posted on December 19th, 2014 by Admin
There are many different types of car accidents. Consequently, the approach and strategy for handling a Georgia auto accident for one person may be very different than how an attorney handles a car accident for someone else.
In addition, Congress is frequently changing or creating new laws, which affect case strategies and case rulings. In 2007, Congress passed the Cameron Gulbransen Kids Transportation Safety Act. Cameron Bulbransen was a two-year-old boy who died in a car accident when his father backed the car out of the driveway and did not see that his son was behind the car. The law includes provisions for expanding rearward visibility that would involve equipping vehicles with technology that uses mirrors, sensors, cameras or other devices. The National Highway Transportation Safety Administration (NHTSA) is still in the process of gathering information to propose its final rules that will require manufacturers to install back-up camera devices in all cars. Final standards should be in place by the end of 2012. NHTSA estimates that 292 deaths and 18,000 injuries occur every year because of back-over auto incidents. Those who are the most at risk are children and the elderly.
Just as car accidents differ greatly, so do lawsuits in pursuing damages. How a law firm approaches a back-over incident is different than how it holds a party liable in a drunken driving accident.
