Wausau Seat Belt Defects Lawyers

When collisions occur, the safety features of your vehicle may be the only thing to save you from suffering severe injuries. Seat belts, designed to hold you in place during a collision, have saved the lives of millions since their invention. Cars have become faster and more powerful over the years, making it incredibly important to have functional seat belts in your vehicle. The chances of surviving a collision at high speeds is very slim if a seat belt is not being used.

If you’ve been injured due to a defective seat belt, contact our attorneys today by calling 800-242-2974. We’ll walk you through your legal rights and options.

Despite national standards of safety, hundreds of defective automobiles are bought every year. Many times, the defect is not apparent until an accident has occurred and the seat belt has failed. If your seat belt is unable to protect you during a collision, your body may be tossed around the vehicle and could even be thrown from the vehicle if the impact is powerful enough. Without a functioning seat belt, you are put at serious risk for severe injuries and death.

Seat belt defects include:

  • Unlatching of seat belts mid collision leave the passenger unrestrained
  • False latching seat belts appear locked but are ineffective in restraining passengers in accidents
  • Lap belt only seat belts fail to properly restrain passengers in accidents
  • Shoulder belt only seat belts can strangle passengers during accidents
