According to a new study, hybrids are safer than similar size vehicles. The Highway Loss Data Institute should be reported in national news media soon. As an attorney who represents people harmed by truck accidents, car crashes or other catastrophic life events, I am acutely aware of injuries which may differ based on the vehicle, or even the position of someone within the vehicle.
The study suggests hybrids shield their occupants from injuries in crashes with the odds of being injured being 25 percent lower for people in hybrids compared to nonhybrid twins.
“Weight is a big factor,” according to Matt Moore, author of the report. Hybrids on about 10 percent heavier than their counterparts. “This extra mass gives them an advantage in crashes that their conventional twins don’t have.”
You may thought about a hybrid to help the environment, you may also be helping yourself and your passengers in the event of a crash.
