Commentary on Beatriz Moreno Car Accident in Houston
Something that stands out to me in accounts like this is when it seems only one person was seriously hurt, and it doesn't appear they were close to the point of impact, at least relative to others involved. Now, the disparity in injuries could simply be due to the victim's age or some other reasonable factor.
However, it's always important to consider things like defective seatbelts or airbags. Not only would it be important to hold someone responsible for those avoidable injuries, but it would also be important to address the issue before others suffered similar fates. Unfortunately, this isn't the sort of thing authorities tend to look into on their own. That's why it's important to understand these shortcomings and to take steps to make sure experienced professionals looked into all the facts.
