Car Accident ClaimWhile you may not consider it so, driving is a hazardous activity. If you are a seasoned driver, it is easy to forget how quickly one simple mistake can substantially harm you, your passengers, and the other motorists around you. When accidents occur, various factors affect the degree of injury and damage that results from that crash. One of the factors relating to the harm suffered in an accident is the location of your seat in the vehicle. In some cases, some seats are safer than others. This article will discuss which seats in a car are more dangerous or likely to result in harm to yourself or a passenger in the event of a collision.

Depending on the particular accident, it may be challenging to determine who is at fault and how to obtain compensation from those responsible for your damages.

The Most Dangerous Seats In A Car

As discussed above, many factors can affect whether you are injured in an auto accident. Some factors include speed, size, travel direction, collision area, and vehicle safety features. However, the insurance institute for highway safety (IIHS) performed a study in 2020 analyzing, among other factors, passenger occupant death deaths by seating position. In 2020, the majority of passengers killed in accidents were drivers. This means that those operating the vehicle were most likely to be killed in passenger vehicle accidents, amounting to 76%. 

While in 2020 drivers saw the most deaths in auto accidents, the causes of those accidents vary widely from year to year. The types of vehicles, the age, the size, and the location of impact during the accident can make a substantial difference in who is harmed during an accident. Additionally, the lack of safety features or failure to use safety features available, like seat belts, contributes substantially to the rate of incidents involved in accidents. As a general rule, no matter which seat you are sitting in, it is crucial that you always use your seat belt to mitigate or prevent serious injury or even death in the event of an accident.
