Defective Seat Belts
There is a particular sense of injustice when a device that was intended to keep drivers and passengers safe fails or causes injury. Seat belts have saved the lives of thousands of people since their invention and people have come to rely on them to keep them safe in the event of a serious car wreck. But seat belts occasionally malfunction, often during a wreck when they are needed the most.
A seatbelt can often be the difference between life and death in cases of severe accidents. If you or someone you love has been seriously injured as a result of a defective seat belt, contact the Green Bay car accident lawyers of Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. ® today at 800-242-2874.
Types of Seat Belt Failure
Some of the most unfortunately common examples of seat belt defects include:
- The seat belt unlatching randomly without warning
- The seat belt latch coming undone under pressure, such as when a person flies forward during a wreck
- The fabric part of the seat belt splintering or breaking completely in half. This may be the result of improperly woven fibers or just the structural design of the seat belt itself.
It would be an understatement to say that seat belts are important. There are now a number of laws requiring the use of seat belts for drivers and passengers. When seat belt manufacturers fail to provide consumers with safe and reliable products, they should be held accountable for their mistakes.
