At a very young age, our parents gave each of us rules and regulations that may have seemed unnecessary and overbearing. It is not until we get older that we realize their intent was not to limit our fun, but rather, it was to help us avoid personal injury.As personal injury attorneys we understand that when it comes to driving, safety should be a car driver’s first priority. We also realize that drivers are only human and tend to break the rules of the road. We also realize that when safety is compromised in an automobile, car accidents that cause personal injury, pain and suffering, and even wrongful death.
In recent national news the February 12, 2009 crash of Continental Connection Flight 3407 — which caused 50 wrongful deaths when it fell short of the runway in Buffalo, N.Y. — the central issue of the accident became the alleged safety gap between smaller regional carriers and the nation’s larger airlines. One issue investigators have keyed in on is whether the airline crew was adequately trained on emergency equipment because it seems as though the crew may have failed to follow proper stall-recovery procedures of pushing the nose of the plane down because “they didn’t anticipate the event at all,” said an NTSB board member.
No driver anticipates being involved in an auto accident, but at times — as in the plane crash — the unthinkable often becomes reality. That is why it is smart to have the best car insurance policy on your side.
When operating an automobile, much like piloting an aircraft, it is very important that safety precautions are taught in order to avoid fatalities. Driving school and traffic laws are designed to limit the number of car accidents, fatal car crashes, drunken driving accidents, personal injuries and wrongful deaths.
As car accident attorneys, we believe that drivers should obey the driving laws. We also understand that car crashes are often out of your control as other drivers at times break the laws of the road. If you are an attentive driver and take every safety precaution, you should be able to avoid personal injury and wrongful death in a car accident.
