If you have been injured by a vehicle defect such as one listed above, you have the right to take legal action. Consulting a lawyer can help you better understand your legal rights regarding your specific situation.

Seat Belt Defects

Seat belts that are improperly designed, manufactured, or installed may fail in the event of a car accident and cause serious, life-threatening injuries. 

Common types of seat belt defects include:

  • Inertial unlatching: The force of the accident is stronger than the seat belt latch, causing it to become unbuckled
  • False latching: The buckle appears to be latched when in reality it is not
  • Faulty retractors: The retractor fails to hold the belt snugly against the body, leaving too much slack
  • Webbing failure: The fabric of the belt becomes torn or ripped and fails to protect the user during a collision

Seat belts are supposed to be life-saving devices, but did you know that there have been more than 1,000 seat belt recalls since 1996? These recalls have been issued over a number of failures caused by errors during the design or manufacture of the product.
