Litigation: How Our Cars Got Safer

On April 15, 2011, the Washington Post published an op-ed by American Association for Justice President Gibson Vance entitled “How Our Cars Got Safer.” The op-ed is tied to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s (NHTSA) report that traffic deaths have dropped to the lowest levels since 1949, even as people rack up more miles on the road. Cars are safer now because of personal injury litigation, which led to countless safety innovations. Read AAJ’s report on auto safety and litigation at: www.justice.org/autosafety.

“After my car was totaled in an accident, the other driver gave a false name, left the scene, and left me alone on the side of the road with a concussion. Afterwards, insurance companies were contacting me with confusing information that I knew was not right, but I had no idea how to deal with them on my own. I was so fortunate to be directed to Maria Diamond. She made a personal visit to see me and learn what happened. Maria agreed to take my case and kept me informed and prepared for every step through the arbitration process and a successful outcome. My family is so grateful to Maria for her expertise, professionalism, and support during a very confusing and hurtful time. I would recommend her to anyone.” Sue Byron
