Cardonelawfirmairbagautoaccidentneworleans-300x200When we think of the main safety devices installed in vehicles which are designed for driver and passenger protection, the first thing which comes to many peoples’ minds is the airbag. Airbags are primarily used as a safety device for drivers and passengers. When a crash or any sort of notable impact occurs, there are certain sensors within vehicles which register these events. These sensors correspond directly with airbags installed in the vehicle which are contained in the airbag electronic controller unit, also known as the “ECU.”

Any new car you buy is required to be equipped with airbags according to federal regulations. But, airbags haven’t been around all that long. Airbags were first introduced in the 1970s with limited success and broad based commercial use of airbags didn’t start in the market until the late 1980s and early 1990s. Therefore, relatively speaking, airbags are somewhat modern technology.

Wearing your seat belt is required by law and has been since 1968 when the Motor Vehicle Safety Standard was passed, enforcing all car manufacturers to build seat belts into their vehicles. That being said, driving without one on is reckless and can lead to serious injuries.

At the Cardone Law Firm, it is not our aim to point the finger at anyone’s mistakes. Instead, we aim to share over 40 years of knowledge with you about car or truck accidents. Even if you weren’t wearing a seat belt at the time of the crash, that does not mean that you completely forfeit your right to compensation.

Our safety and the safety of others when we are on the road depends on being a responsible driver. The New Orleans car accidents attorneys at the Cardone Law Firm, know that vigilance needs to extend to every moment we are in the driver’s seat, even in places we might not typically think of as potentially dangerous – like a parking lot.

With their lower speeds, it’s easy to think that nothing can happen to us or our vehicle in a parking lot. However, the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety found in a study of over 500 vehicle collisions, 14% of them occurred in parking lots. Other projections show that as many as 20% of accidents occur in parking lots.
