When Your Car Hits A Deer, Cow, Horse Or Any Animal — What To Do If You Should Not Suffer Traumatic Injury


One of the most dangerous head-on-collison accidents involves a car hitting a deer or any other animal. Collisions with animals are very common in rural areas and even occur in urban areas with a deer over population. The roof on your vehicle should protect occupants from serious injury when your car hits an animal, but our Crash Lab has documented case after case of defective roofs failing with catastrophic results. Here’s how the Tracy Law Firm uses Crash Tests to prove its cases against a carmaker for a defective roof design when a car hits deer or car hits animal case.

Hello! This is Todd Tracy with another Todd Talk. One of the most frequent accident occurrences that happen in rural areas are animal strikes where people driving down the road at night time actually strike an animal such as deer, horse, or cow. When that occurs, catastrophic injuries often definitely occur because when that large animal is struck, most of the time it ends up landing on the roof. If it doesn’t crush the roof down, it can literally tear the roof in half.

One of the technology advances that we view at my law firm is an impact simulator that we have one of our expert’s firm use to evaluate production vehicle strength roofs and then we incorporate safer alternative designs into those roof structures so that we can determine if that animal strike injury or death could have been avoided with stronger roof.

If you, a family member, or friend have suffered a traumatic car accident injury or they were killed in an auto accident, there may be grounds for a product liability lawsuit against the car maker. The victim’s or family members of the deceased person may be entitled to significantly more money in damages than just a negligence case about the cause of the accident.

The Tracy Law Firm focuses on “Who Caused The Traumatic Car Accident Injuries or Death” — not who caused the accident.

Whether you were at fault or not in the cause of the accident, car companies are required by federal motor vehicle safety standards to make vehicles that will protect the driver and passengers from catastrophic injuries or death.
