Backover Accidents Attorney
Unfortunately, backover accidents are far more common than many people realize. These types of accidents are as one might imagine – an incident where a motorist backs a car over another person. In most cases, this other person is a bicyclist or a pedestrian, oftentimes a child. Backover accidents typically involve low rates of speed and happen while exiting a parking spot or backing down a driveway. Tragically, every year thousands of people are killed or seriously injured as a result of a backover accident. In fact, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reported that more than 2,500 children are treated in emergency rooms or hospitals for injuries related to backover or rollover accidents. This means that roughly 50 children are backed over every week in the United States. Here at Rad Law Firm, we understand how tragic and emotionally challenging these types of accidents can be. If you or your child was involved in a backover accident and suffered injuries, please contact our law firm. We have offices conveniently located in Beverly Hills, CA as well as Austin, Houston, Dallas, Fort Worth, and Brownsville, TX and we are available to talk today for free.
Backover Accident Injuries and Statistics
A backover accident occurs when a pedestrian or biker is hit by car going in reverse. Interestingly, SUVs and pickup trucks are most often involved in these accidents. These vehicles have larger “blind spots”, making it difficult for the driver to see anything that is close behind them. They also have bigger rear pillars and smaller rear windows. Some of the most common types of injuries suffered in backover accidents include the following:
- Head, neck and facial injuries
- Injuries to the legs and arms
- Bruises and scratches
- Fractures and internal injuries
Even though every driver has the responsibility to exercise reasonable care when backing up a vehicle, this doesn’t always happen. If a driver is negligent, distracted, or acts in a reckless manner, it could result in tragedy.
