Commentary on Amber Denise Sheppard Car Accident in Bryan

Regardless of what caused this crash, it's important to shed some light on lesser known issues which also deserve attention in situations like this. It stands out to me that despite the similar sized vehicles, one person seems to be significantly injured while the other may not be. What could explain that disparity of injuries? It could be just dumb luck or something common like lack of seatbelt usage. However, it could also be a defect with the victim's vehicle.

A little-discussed issue in the motor vehicle industry is that some vehicles are woefully inept at deflecting off-center impacts. Some manufacturers found simple, relatively affordable ways to help with this, yet others neglect to make these changes, likely due to being more concerned about their bottom line than their customers.

If evidence shows that someone would be fine in a similar but safer vehicle, the manufacturer failing to adequately protect their customers can be liable for the resulting injuries. Maybe nothing like that happened here, but these are the kinds of issues more experienced professionals will want to look into.
