Deputy in Critical Condition After Rollover Accident
Posted By The Carlson Law Firm || 3-Dec-2013
A Bell County Sheriff’s Deputy was seriously injured in a rollover accident on Sunday evening when he lost control of his patrol car before it overturned on FM 1237 near Pendleton, officials said.
The injured deputy was identified as 36-year-old Adam Davis, who was recently listed in critical condition at Scott & White in Temple, Texas. Officials said Davis remains on a ventilator.
According to reports, Davis was responding to a call that evening in Pendleton when he lost control of the patrol car. As a result, the vehicle rolled. Authorities do not believe speed was tied to the accident.
Even accident situations involving company and vehicles utilized by professionals can present problems and fail to protect drivers and occupants should equipment fail or operate incorrectly. While we expect vehicles to be equipped with pieces and parts that protect us in the event of a crash, defective seatbelts, faulty airbags and inadequate glass can leave occupants vulnerable to serious injuries resulting from ejection and roof crush.
In some situations where equipment within a vehicle fails or leaves occupants at risk of serious injuries and death, problems and defects may have been realized. But despite the prevalence of recalls and standards governing automobiles and the equipment comprising vehicles, some vehicle recalls only occur after several reports of injuries, accidents and deaths are revealed.
