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 & Ligori 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 & Ligori 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.

Alisabeth S.

Ligori & Ligori 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 & Ligori.

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 had an amazing experience with Ligori & Ligori law firm. They handled my case with such professionalism. From the very beginning by sending someone to my home to get details and interview me after my accident, to my case manager Rochelle who was always a call away and explained every step and made sure there was always transparency and kept me updated with everything. I can be very tough and I called way too many times with millions of questions and my calls were never unanswered and my questions and concerns were always answered. Thanks to their amazing team, from the receptionist to John Castro the lawyer on my case who was always personal and relatable. Highly recommended!
