Seat Belts

Modified on 2009/10/14 21:34 by admin
Seat belts, both the manual and automatic versions, can and do save lives. Unfortunately, some automobile manufacturers have developed seatbelt systems that do more harm than good. For instance, some automatic shoulder belts have been known to decapitate or otherwise seriously injure occupants when not used properly. Manufacturers of certain automatic seatbelt systems are to blame for these deaths and injuries as their designs were either too cumbersome or confusing for occupants to use properly. Some seat belts have even been known to separate from their base upon impact, thus providing no protection to the occupant. Carmakers are very familiar with proper seatbelt design and production; however, some manufacturers are reluctant to redesign their vehicles, as to do so would cost them money. Safety should not be compromised for the sake of a few dollars.

If you have been injured by a defective seatbelt, it may be important to contact an attorney who can help you protect your valuable legal rights. Please keep in mind that there may be time limits within which you must commence suit.
