Automobile / Seatbelt Defects & Failure

Seatbelts perform a central role in potecting the occupant of a vehicle which is in an accident from serious injury or death. Properly designed seatbelts restrain the occupant, and act to minimize the his or her violent movement within the vehicle during the crash. However, utilizing a seatbelt may not always ensure safety in the event of an accident. If a seatbelt is not properly designed, manufactured or installed, it can actually cause serious injuries and even death in the event of a collision.

To protect your rights following injury or death resulting from a seatbelt injury you should consult an experienced personal injury law firm.
