That's why manufacturers have teams of ppl that are on call 24/7 & they go on location whenever serious accidents happened involving one of their products.
Sure. Maybe for an airplane accident or an accident worthy of involving the ntsb.

But no one is sending a team of people to see why you wrapped your new F30 around a tree.

Ever hear of statistics? That's what they use. They don't send out teams of people to crash sites.
