We understand just how frustrating and, ultimately, devastating it can be to sustain a preventable injury, especially when it involves a seat belt not functioning as it should. A seat belt properly working can be the difference between life and death in an auto accident. Victims of defective seat belt accidents need a San Antonio, Texas defective product lawyer in their corner.

Causes & Examples of Defective Seat Belts

Unfortunately, there are a wide variety of ways in which seat belts can either inherently be defective or may become defective over time. Many of these defects are caused by negligent or unsafe seatbelt design, while others occur during the manufacturing process. Just some of the most common causes and types of defective seatbelts are as follows:

  • Weak webbing
  • Retractor failure
  • Unsafe seatbelt geometry
  • Inertial unlatching
  • Vehicle system failure
  • False latching
  • Inadequately-mounted systems

These are just some of the potential things that can go wrong with seat belts. This is why, no matter the specific cause of your injury, if you were harmed because a seat belt failed to work as it’s supposed to, you should have a valid claim, and our defective seat belts lawyer is here to help you file that claim.

Injuries Sustained Due to Defective Seat Belts

As you can imagine, many of the injuries sustained as a result of defective seat belts involve some sort of head trauma, as when a person collides with another vehicle or object, inertia swings their body forward, and without a properly working seat belt, their head may strike the steering wheel or go through the windshield. Some of the most common injuries sustained due to defective seat belts are as follows:

  • Brain bleeds
  • Internal hemorrhaging
  • Ruptured spleen
  • Abdominal aorta aneurysms
  • Pneumothorax
  • Lacerations
  • Permanent scarring/disfigurement
  • Death
