Seatbelt and Restraint Systems Failure Attorney
Unfortunately, there are millions of cars on the roads today that are poorly designed and manufactured. Not only is this an unfortunate trend that is costing Americans thousands of dollars, but also their lives. When cars are not made well, it increases the chances of accidents taking place that oftentimes result in serious injury or loss of life. The seatbelt is one of the most important components of any vehicle, as it is the system that keeps you safe in the event of an accident. When it is poorly made or does not work properly, it can cause serious injury and even death. Thanks in part to the numerous different public service campaigns encouraging people to “buckle up”, Americans are using their seatbelts in much higher numbers than ever before. However, when a seatbelt malfunctions or fails, it does no good. Attorneys at Rad Law Firm have experience with these types of cases and are prepared to fight for your rights. We are conveniently located in Beverly Hills, CA as well as Austin, Houston, Dallas, Fort Worth, and Brownsville, TX and are available to talk for free today about your case.
Ways Seatbelts Can Fail
What are the indications of restraint failure? If one restrained person in the vehicle is alright after an accident and another has serious injuries, the restraint may have failed. If a passenger is found unbelted after the accidents but says he was belted, the restraint may have failed. If a car suffers minimal damage but an occupant is severely injured, the restraint may have failed. Seatbelts can fail due to both poor design and faulty manufacturing. Some of the most common types of defects include the following:
- Inertial unlatching and false latching
- Torn or ripped webbing
- Retractor failure
- Poor seatbelt geometry
- Vehicle system failure
- Poorly designed systems
If you are involved in a car accident and notice that you are the only one of the people in the car that sustained unusually severe injuries while wearing your seatbelt, a defective component of your car’s restraint system may be to blame. An investigation will need to be conducted in order to determine what the problem was, which is where we come in.
