How Do Car Accidents In Philadelphia Happen?

Many car accidents occur as a result of reckless or negligent driving. Nearly half of all serious injuries, such as traumatic brain and spinal cord injuries, occur during motor vehicle accidents. If this has happened to you, contact an experienced car accident attorney at Ross Feller Casey today for a free consultation about a car accident case.

Philadelphia County has the largest number of car accidents per capita in Pennsylvania, with about 10,000 car accidents each year and 128 fatalities. In the state overall, there are nearly 118,000 car accidents, with more than 1,200 fatalities annually. Many of the auto accidents result from negligent driving.

Manufacturing defects also can produce unsafe vehicles. SUVs and vans that are top-heavy are subject to rollovers. Commercial trucks may have malfunctioning brakes that result in catastrophic accidents. Car roofs sometimes fail to withstand a rollover without crushing. Some airbags don’t operate effectively and open unexpectedly, fail to open, or deploy with too much force.

Manufacturing defects led to one of the most extensive car recalls in history, involving airbag problems related to inflators produced by Takata of Japan. The airbags exploded, injuring or even killing occupants by spraying metal shards throughout the passenger cabin. Seat belts, such as lap belts, have been known to cause abdominal injuries, resulting in severe injuries for children. Problems like this are the leading factor behind many truck accident lawsuits.

Design flaws are also a cause of motor vehicle accidents. A design flaw resulted in Ford Motor Co. recalling nearly 1.4 million models from 2014 to 2018, Ford Fusions and Lincoln MKZs, because bolts that secured the steering wheels in those vehicles have been shown to come loose, causing accidents and injuries.

Another design flaw in 343,000 Audi cars and SUVs equipped with 2.0l Turbo FSI engines resulted in a massive recall. The vehicles had an electric coolant pump that could become blocked with cooling system debris, causing the pump to overheat and start a fire.
