Dear Care for Crash Victims Community Members:
Legal Reader has kindly published an article I submitted (pro bono) that tells a brief story on how just months after I retired from NHTSA to work on improving care for crash victims, I learned an important insight on rollover deaths, injuries, and the corporatized legal system.
Please see how I learned an important lesson.
Rollover crashes kill thousands of Americans every year.
The latest published NHTSA data is for the year 2018.
Table 115 attached shows that in that year 6,514 Americans died in Rollover crashes. Data is also available there for occupants of cars, trucks and vans by State and Vehicle Type.
Rollover crashes also result in many thousands more serious injuries each year such as spinal cord and traumatic brain injuries,
Hopefully publishing this story will help build a Safer America.
