(813) 254-7119 Seat Belt Or Occupant Restraint System Failure

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.

What Our Happy Clients say

Based on 21 reviews

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 & Ligori 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 & Ligori to anyone needing help and direction after an auto accident.

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 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.
