Aggressive Seatbelt & Seatback Failure Attorneys

Header Line

Drivers shouldn’t have to worry about seats with weak seatbacks and seatbelts that are defective and dangerous.

There are two major components in a vehicle that are designed to keep the occupants safely in their seat during an accident: the seatbelt and the seatback. If one of these two components fails to perform as intended, then the occupant is far more likely to sustain a serious injury.

Seatbelt failures can include:

  • False Latching – This occurs when the seatbelt looks and feels like it has been latched properly, but is not.
  • Inertial Unlatching – This occurs when the force from an accident causes the seatbelt latch plate to slip out of the buckle.
  • Failure of the Seatbelt Retractor to Lock – This occurs when the seatbelt doesn’t lock and the impact from an accident causes the passenger to be thrown forward.
  • Webbing Failure – This occurs when the seatbelt webbing/material rips during an accident.

Seatback failures typically occur in rear-end collisions. These types of accidents create a lot of force with the passenger’s body against the seatback. When a seatback isn’t designed strong enough, it collapses backwards causing the passenger to be thrown rearward in the vehicle. This can lead to serious injuries for the passenger being thrown backwards and for any occupants sitting in the backseat of the vehicle.

The consequences of a seatbelt or seatback failure can be severe and can cause serious injuries or even death to the occupants of a vehicle. Our product liability lawyers have represented many who have been injured due to a defective product, and will continue to offer their experience and knowledge to make sure each client receives the compensatory damages they deserve.
