Occupant Restraint System Lawsuit Claims Lawyer

There is no doubt that a seat belt, or occupant restraint system, can save your life during a vehicle accident. Using seat belts, the occupant restraint system in your vehicle, can greatly reduce injuries during collisions and other types of auto wrecks. However, this is only true when the seat belts are correctly designed for safety and work as intended. It is an unfortunate fact that manufacturer design flaws and defects can cause occupant restraint systems to fail or cause injuries, defeating the purpose of these important safety features.

Occupant restraint systems are vital in minimizing injuries during a vehicle crash. When they perform as intended, they lock and prevent the occupant from injuries that can be sustained from slamming into the dashboard, windshield or ejection from the vehicle. While minor injuries can be caused by seat belts during an accident, they are usually much less severe than injuries without a seat belt, often preventing fatalities. However, this is only if they perform as intended.

Injuries from Seat Belt Failure

Seat belts should be designed to withstand the weight of a vehicle occupant when a collision, rollover or other type of accident occurs. If any of the seat belt components fail, the occupant can be thrown throughout the interior of the vehicle or be ejected during the crash. Head trauma, lacerations, spine/back injuries, broken bones and internal injuries can occur, especially when the occupant is thrown from the vehicle.

If a seat belt tears, unlatches or releases during use, causing injuries to the user, it may be due to a manufacturing design flaw or defect. The manufacturer may be liable for any injuries caused due to an occupant restraint system failure. If you or a family member have been injured due to a faulty seat belt, contact Ligori & Ligori Attorneys at Law today. You may be entitled to compensation for your injuries.
