Crash Avoidance System Failure in Phoenix, AZ

Were you injured because the manufacturer of your vehicle did not install crash avoidance tech? Crash avoidance systems have been added to many vehicles in recent years as technology has improved. But even cars that include this tech can malfunction, or a manufacturer may decide not to install it, resulting in a tragedy that could have been avoided with the use of a functioning, effective crash avoidance system.

Crash avoidance systems are not mandatory in vehicles in the United States. Specifically, automated emergency braking is not mandatory, but in 2016, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) persuaded twenty automobile manufacturers to include AEB in 99 percent of new cars car sold in the U.S. by September 1, 2022, according to The Honolulu Star-Advertiser.

But the inclusion of such a system is still not required by law in the United States, and if you have been involved in a car accident that involved vehicles without crash avoidance technology and were injured, you should seek legal representation.

If you or a loved one were involved in a crash that involved a car without a crash avoidance system, you may possibly have a claim that, if an auto manufacturer had included crash avoidance technology within the vehicle in question, the accident could have been avoided or the injuries or damages could have been less severe.
