What Is Crashworthiness?

Crashworthiness is the ability of a vehicle to protect its occupants during an impact. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has several crashworthiness guidelines and standards.

Additionally, seat design may play a factor in the catastrophic injuries suffered during a crash. These injuries could result in paralysis. In other instances, the airbag may fail to deploy or may deploy too late failing to prevent injuries to the occupant.

Ultimately the automobile manufacturers are the ones who have to make the constructive choices that are going to protect the occupants from mishaps such as roof crush or rollovers, which with faulty designs and mechanisms cause horrible injuries that are life altering or even worse, life ending. Auto manufacturers may cut corners and install subpar materials to save money. These faulty materials could fail to meet the intended purpose of keeping you safe, and if the parts fail, you could be seriously injured.
