Seat Belts and Safety
In the event of a car accident, a properly functioning seat belt is one of the best defenses against catastrophic injury. When a moving car is stopped suddenly in a crash, inertia will cause the driver and any passengers to continue moving until something forces them stop. If a seat belt is worn, they will stay in their seats. If not, their bodies will keep moving until stopped by something else; unfortunately for victims, this often involves a violent collision with a dashboard, a windshield, or other objects outside of the vehicle. At high speeds, the human body is likely to sustain severe damage in a collision with almost any object. Wearing a seat belt is the best way to avoid such injuries.

The Defective Seat Belt Hazard
Unfortunately seat belts do not always work as they should. Any defective seat belt lawyer has seen numerous life-altering injuries and disabilities caused by obsolete or improperly manufactured seat belts. False latching, unlatching during a rollover accident, weak installation points, and retractor failures commonly lead to serious injuries. Your Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and New Jersey area defective seat belt lawyer will thoroughly investigate your accident to determine which factors contributed to your injuries.
Modern seat belt designs are effective and reliable, but some manufacturers choose to provide minimum safety in order to cut costs. If the use of more effective and available seat belt technology would have reduced or prevented injury in an accident, a manufacturer may be liable. A malfunctioning seatbelt in an automobile accident can be the cause of enhanced and unnecessary injuries. If a person suffers an enhanced injury he or she may have a meritorious product liability claim.
