What is a Park to Reverse Accident?
Park to reverse is a term that describes an accident where a driver of a car believes that they have shifted their vehicle’s transmission into the park position, and trusting that this is the case, removes their foot from the brake. There are many situations where drivers do this every day: they get out of the car to get mail out of the mailbox, to speak to a neighbor, to pick up a child from school and help to seatbelt them into the car or strap them into a car seat.
Unfortunately, as a result of a manufacturers’ defect on many cars, the vehicle is not actually in park. Instead, the gear shift is positioned between gears and the car can move into a powered reverse and suddenly shifts backward, or a hydraulic neutral where it can roll either forwards or backward. In either case, severe injuries can occur.
The driver, bystanders, and innocent children have been seriously injured or killed as a result. It has been well established that in many cases this is a result of a defect in the mechanism that shifts and locks gear into place.
