Backing Accidents – Texas Car Accident Lawyers

Car Accident Injury Claims in Texas

Were you recently involved in a nonfault road traffic accident? If so, you may be eligible to make a car accident injury claim. Eligibility for car accident claims is simple, providing you were not at fault. This means that you may be entitled to make a claim if you suffered personal injury, psychological trauma, damage to your vehicle, or loss of earnings as a result of the accident. Our competent car accident solicitors can help you seek compensation and justice for injuries sustained – even for minor whiplash claims!

The most common car accident claims made following a road traffic accident are whiplash. Any impact that causes the neck to become misaligned or forcibly jolted from the front or behind can have painful repercussions. If you have sustained such an injury due to the fault of another driver, we are on hand to provide free impartial advice regarding access to car accident injury compensation. We can provide support, representation, and possibly, personal injury compensation if your accident occurred within the last three years at no cost to you.

Backing Car Accident Statistics

A reversing car accident occurs every 1.6 minutes in this country. In the U.S., every year, over 300,000 backing accidents are reported, which doesn’t include unreported accidents. More than 400 people die yearly from backing accidents (most young children.) Drivers must pay over 1.3 billion dollars a year for the damages. The highest number of accidents happen in densely populated cities. For example, Houston is responsible for 15% of all Texas car accident injuries. Even the simplest of backing safety systems could have prevented most of these accidents!

Kids and Cars, a nonprofit organization for increasing child auto safety, reports that in 2017, 91 children died from being backed into. Most (82%) of these deaths were small children under age four. This age group, though only a tiny 6% of the U.S. population, makes up 30% of all non-occupant victims of backing accidents. Also, the number of children killed in reversing accidents increased by 57% from 2016 to 2017. Why the dramatic increase? Most likely, it’s due to the large blind spots of SUVs, vans, and pickups, which have been increasing in popularity. Blind spots are areas the driver cannot see easily from her position.

Non-Fault Car Accidents

Car accidents are devastating at any time, regardless of age or experience. They are predominantly caused by human error, such as foregoing obvious warning signs at a junction or failing to adhere to imposed speed limits. No matter which factors contributed to your car accident, so long as you are not at fault, we can help you seek car accident injury compensation.

Accident Injury Cases

As explained by one Austin Car Accident lawyer, when a person is involved in a car wreck, two aspects of Texas law can create problems in recovering damages. Texas is a comparative fault state. That means a person cannot recover damages for the percentage of fault the jury assigns to him. So if a jury finds the injury victim to be 10% at fault, the jury’s verdict is reduced by 10%. For the sake of accuracy, it should be noted that an injury victim cannot recover any damages at all if the jury finds him to be 51% or more at fault. In other words, if a jury finds the injured person to be 51% at fault and also finds his damages to me $1 million, the injured person recovers nothing.

Rear Blind Spots: Be Aware!

Texas Car Accident Lawyers warn that Most backing-over accidents happen because a child or object is obscured from the driver’s view by the vehicle’s blind spot. The longer and taller the vehicle is, the bigger the blind spot may be, making it more difficult to see children or objects behind the vehicle.

We did our own investigation to demonstrate that principle. We measured the blind spots for several vehicles: sedans, minivans, SUVs, and pickup trucks. Using a 28-inch road cone and placing it at different distances behind different autos, we measured and compared the blind spots of these vehicles. Here is what we found:

  • Honda Accord Sedan: Blindspot is roughly 12 feet for an average-height driver (5’8″). A shorter driver (5’1″) would be closer to 17 feet.
  • Dodge Grand Caravan Minivan: Blindspot is 13 feet for the average-height driver and 23 feet for a shorter driver.
  • Toyota Sequoia SUV: Blindspot is 14.5 feet for an average-height driver and 24.5 feet for a shorter driver.
  • Chevrolet Avalanche Pickup: Blindspot is 30 feet for an average driver and 51 feet for a shorter driver. That’s a lot of obscured areas!

As you can see, as the bottom of the rear window rises, the car length increases, or the driver’s height decreases, and the length of the blind spot increases. Don’t risk your own financial security and the lives of small children! Invest in a backing safety system today!
