Who Would Be Liable In The Event Of A Seatbelt Failure?
A: If an injury accident occurred as the result of a defective seatbelt, you may have a case against the auto manufacturer of the seatbelt. There may be a design defect that caused the malfunction. Some of the common defects involve the seatbelt buckle that may unlatch after an impact. A shoulder harness or strap may have too much slack in it causing the shoulder belt retractors to fail. Also automatic or door mounted seatbelts can injure or kill a person if the door opens during a crash. In addition, a shoulder only belt can cause strangulations and neck injuries and equally dangerous are lap-only backseat belts.
