Huntsville Back-Up and Backover Accident Attorneys

A back over accident is a very serious type of auto accident, even at a lower speed. Back over accidents involve a car or truck backing up, typically out of a driveway or parking spot. A collision involving a vehicle backing up and colliding with or running over a child or adult directly behind the vehicle is a backup accident. Pedestrians, cyclists, joggers, skateboarders, young children and other bystanders are particularly vulnerable to accidents when other vehicles are backing up. These backup accidents often occur when the driver puts his or her vehicle into reverse without checking whether or not it is safe to back up. Back-up accidents do occur frequently and often result in serious injury or death, especially to children, pedestrians, cyclists and others not protected by another vehicle.

Back-up Accidents and Blind Spots

Back-up accidents occur most frequently because a driver does not confirm, by looking in the side or rearview mirror, it is safe to back-up before putting the car in reverse. All vehicles have blind spots, however, the presence of a blind spot does not excuse an accident. When backing up, the larger the car, truck, or SUV, the greater potential for blind spots. Small children, toys, and small objects often fall within a car or trucks blind spot. The driver of the car, truck or delivery van backing up is usually the at-fault party. If dangerous conditions on a property contributed to a backup accident, the property owner or occupant responsible for maintaining the property may also be liable.

Young Children and Backover Accidents

In Alabama, many children are seriously injured or killed each year in backover accidents. The most common victims are one-year-olds between 12-23 months. These young toddlers are independent enough to take off but have very limited understanding of the dangers of large vehicles. The majority of Decatur and Huntsville toddler backover accidents take place in a driveway or outside of a victims home, and often involve a family member. The use of a backup camera or simply getting out and looking behind a car before backing up can reduce back-up accidents.
