Car Bumper Not Designed To Protect Occupants From Injury

Comments Off

Bob Kraft has posted an article featuring helpful information for rear end automobile accident claims for injuries.

NHTSA Automobile Bumper Information

Those of us who represent automobile collision victims deal daily with the insurance company argument that our client couldn’t have been hurt because there wasn’t extensive damage to the client’s vehicle. But now an official federal government Web site can help us counter that argument.

The car bumper is designed to prevent or reduce physical damage to the front and rear ends of passenger motor vehicles in low-speed collisions. Automobile bumpers are not typically designed to be structural components that would significantly contribute to vehicle crashworthiness or occupant protection during front or rear collisions. It is not a safety feature intended to prevent or mitigate injury severity to occupants in the passenger cars.
