A horrific car crash on US 75 North Central Expressway in Dallas left a promising young physician a quadriplegic.

The auto manufacturer settled after seeing the results of our own crash tests.
Todd Tracy, Dallas Car Accident Lawyer and Auto Safety Expert, uses a crash test dummy in The Tracy Law Firm’s Crash Lab in this video demonstration of how a rollover auto accident causes a spinal cord injury.
