Faulty Seat Belt Accidents Attorney in Fort Lauderdale
Helping You Seek the Compensation You Deserve
As a driver, you expect each time you get in a vehicle and put your seat belt on, the safety device will keep you somewhat protected from harm in the event of a collision. While seat belts by themselves cannot protect drivers and passengers from all injuries during an accident, it is known that seat belts enhance your safety and potential for avoiding serious injury or death. Unfortunately, many other car accident victims who were wearing their seatbelt at the time of an accident still suffer serious injuries or even die because of a defective seat belt.
Just like all other product liability cases, there are a massively wide array of different design and manufacturing problems that can cause a seat belt defect. Some defects result in the user not being properly restrained while others cause injuries to the user. If you or loved one was injured in a motor vehicle accident, it might have been a result of a defective seat belt. The laws surrounding defective products, personal injury and wrongful death actions are complex. They have strict time limitations and negligence must be proven, which can be troubling in defective seat belt cases.
Engineers, investigators, and other experts are needed to piece together the accident and determine what actually occurred and who was responsible. You will need a knowledgeable accident attorney with the necessary resources to bring the negligence parties to justice.
