Many modern vehicles have advanced restraint systems and high crashworthiness ratings, yet injuries and fatalities still occur in crashes involving these vehicles. Have advanced restraint systems reduced the rate of serious injuries? What factors are associated with fatalities that occur in highly rated vehicles? In fatal crashes involving fire, can the contributing role of crash forces be distinguished from thermal effects? How have knowledge and data increased to help answer important questions associated with a specific crash incident? What sort of claims arise with rapidly advancing driver assist technology?
