As a personal injury law firm, many of our clients have been injured in a car accident that has occurred because a negligent driver failed to check his or her blind spot. Blind spots are clearly one of the most dangerous hazards of operating a motor vehicle. As reported by Sasha Lekach on, a teen girl recently came up with a simple innovative way to remove blind spots in cars. Alaina Gassler, a 14 year-old from Pennsylvania, has come up with an invention that displays live video feed from outside of the car onto the vehicle’s interior pillar, essentially allowing the driver to see directly through the area where their blind spot would typically be located.

In the U.S., there were roughly 40,000 deaths caused by motor vehicle accidents in 2017 alone. Hopefully, continued research and implementation of safety improvements such as the invention created by Alaina Gassler will continue to reduce the number of motor vehicle injuries and fatalities we see each year.
