Malfunctioning Seat Belts

Everyone who drives a car should be aware of the vital role that seat belts play in driver safety. That small strip of material is often the only thing between life and death in the event of a serious car crash. But despite being aware of the necessity for seat belts and even being a safety conscious driver who always wears a seat belt, sometimes the efficacy of seat belt is out of your hands.

Even if you hear a click, certain seat belts have malfunctions or faulty designs that can cause them to break or click open upon strong force such as when a car hits something. If you or someone you love has been severely injured due to a seat belt malfunction, contact the Phoenix personal injury lawyers of Haralson, Miller, Pitt, Feldman & McAnally, P.L.C. at 800-763-0964.

The Various Types of Seat Belt Malfunction

There are two main ways that seat belts break down. A seat belt malfunction may be the result of:

  • Faulty design – If a belt was poorly designed it may click open just as you need it most.
  • The belt fabric – In certain situations the fibers in the belt are woven badly and the belt itself can splinter or break in the event of a wreck.

When an auto manufacturer allows faulty seatbelts to be sold, they can be held responsible for people’s resulting injuries. Our Phoenix seat belt defect lawyers can help you fight for the compensation you need to cover medical bills, property repairs, and other expenses.
