Defective Seatbelts Attorneys
It is always safer to wear a seatbelt than to not wear a seatbelt. About 71% of the nation actually uses their seatbelts. Yet some people who have been involved in auto accidents suffer more severe injuries because of a defective seatbelt or in the design of the seatbelt.
If an injury occurs due to the defect, the injured person may have a products liability case against the manufacturer of the seatbelt. Even though the manufacturer of the vehicle did not cause or was not involved in the collision, they can still be held liable if a defective seatbelt increased the severity of the victim's injuries over and above those which would have otherwise resulted from the accident.
A seat belt may malfunction due to a defect in its design or construction. Most, if not all, vehicles are equipped with lap/shoulder belts. This design is important because outdated lap-belt-only restraints often caused the body to jack knife which resulted in severe abdominal injuries, fractures of the lumbar spine, and serious closed head injuries, and facial injuries. These injuries are prevented by the addition of an upper torso restraint.
