Wrongful DeathIt is tragic that this woman lost her life in an auto accident. It is true that perhaps her life could have been saved if she had worn her seat belt. The problem, however, is that the vehicle failed to negotiate the turn, to begin with. It is not known at this point what caused the vehicle to fail to negotiate the turn. It could be due to tires being installed incorrectly. It may also be because the person that performed work on the car last did not properly tighten down the drivetrain or steering parts. It may even be faulty automotive parts led to the crash. Regardless, a woman lost her life for reasons that may have been out of her control.
