(813) 254-7119 Seat Back Failure

Seat Back Failure Injury Lawyer

You may not realize how important your vehicle’s seats are to your safety until they fail during an auto accident. Seat back failure has caused many serious injuries during vehicle accidents, injuries that may have been avoided with improved design by the manufacturer. At Ligori & Sanders Attorneys at Law, we invite victims that have been injured due to manufacturer design flaws and auto product defects to contact us to explore their legal options for compensation.

Seat backs should be designed to withstand an impact to a vehicle. This is one of the standards that is important in the overall crashworthiness of a vehicle. If the seat back collapses during an accident, the occupants can sustain serious head, neck and spine injuries as they are thrown forward or backward. This is most common with the front seats during a rear-end collision, causing the driver and front passengers to be thrown backward.

Dangers of Seat Back Failure

Not only can drivers and front-seat passengers be injured if seat backs fail during an accident, it can also pose a risk to other occupants in the vehicle. If children or other passengers are in the back seat, they can be impacted by the front seat and occupants flying backward. In addition, if a driver’s seat back collapses when the vehicle is rear-ended, the driver may not be able to control the vehicle. This can cause a greater risk to everyone in the vehicle and others in front of the vehicle.

Seat back failures have been reported in many different types of vehicles, causing serious injuries. If it is determined the seats were not designed properly or there was a manufacturing defect that caused the failure, the manufacturer may be liable for injuries. If you or a loved one were injured due to a seat back failure during an accident, contact our legal team at Ligori & Sanders Attorneys at Law today. We would be happy to schedule a free consultation to discuss your claim and whether you may be eligible to pursue an auto product liability lawsuit.

I just wanted to take a quick time out to say something nice about Mr. Tim Sanders. This man spent an entire year handling my affairs like he was my personal friend. He went to bat for me, and I could tell he cared a great deal about me, my case directly, and he clearly takes a great deal of pride and integrity into his work. You hear a lot of negative about lawyers in this world. Tim, was a tireless worker to get me what I deserved. This guy does his living from the heart. I made a really great choice when I called Tim. My wife and I are so thankful we did.

My experience with Ligori & Sanders was excellent. Their attention to detail and genuine concern for my situation showed that they truly cared about me as a client. The staff was professional, knowledgeable, and kept me informed throughout the entire process. I would highly recommend Ligori & Sanders to anyone needing help and direction after an auto accident.

Ligori & Sanders is an amazing law firm. The employees take time with you to make sure that you truly understand the details of your case and why things are done a certain way to produce the best results. When calling, I always spoke to a person and on the off chance that a message was left, I received a return call promptly. I highly recommend Ligori & Sanders.

Michael J.

Mr. Ligori's firm took the time to explain the legal process and find another attorney in another county. If this law firm can go the extra distance for not even their client, imagine the dedication and expertise if you were their client.

Angela K.

I got into an auto accident and hired Mr. Sanders to represent me a couple weeks later after my insurance company’s lackluster performance to help get me back to normal. I was nervous, this was my first accident with injury and I had never hired a lawyer before. Well let me say, my expectations were met and exceeded, every step of the way. Ligori and Sanders were focused on me and my health. They were polite, prompt, and went to bat for me when the insurance company was not. Not only would I recommend Ligori and Sanders to anyone who needs them, I would insist.
