Car Seat Back Defect Attorney

You count on the safety features in your vehicle to protect you and your loved ones at the most critical times. When you are in an accident, nothing matters more than walking away whole and uninjured.

That is why defects and failures in the design of seatbelts, seats, and other safety equipment are so distressing. When faced with such a situation, you must make sure you get covered both legally and medically.

So after getting stabilized at the hospital, consulting a Los Angeles car accident attorney can mean all the difference in the world.

When Your Seatback Breaks is Your Seatbelt Useless?

Yes, the seatbelt becomes worthless in that case. Your seatbelt is the most basic safety instrument in your car. Most of all, it is meant to keep you from hitting the steering wheel, dashboard, or windshield. However, this safety a belt provides depends on multiple factors.

Sometimes the actual belt itself can withstand the severe stress of a crash. But even then, your seat can buckle or even break — causing the seat belt to become useless.

When such a situation occurs, the loss of a seat’s integrity can result in severe neck or spine injury. Also, this can cause the driver or passenger to collide with other people or parts of the car.

Last, broken seatbacks can create a multiplying in the number of potential injuries such as:

  • Brain injuries
  • Broken back
  • Broken or crushed skull
  • Crushed jaw
  • Broken teeth
  • Broken nose
  • Crushed sternum
  • Broken ribs
  • Broken clavicle

Also, when headrests break or snap off, there is a possibility of a catastrophic head or neck injury – potentially leading to death.

What are Your Legal Options?

Such an accident may not be avoidable. But you need to count on your car’s safety equipment. Faulty seats can turn what should be an accident without injury into a tragedy.

When you cannot rely upon the reasonable expectation that your seats were built strong enough not to snap, you need to seek legal counsel. So you must learn about breach of warranty, merchantability, and other legal theories of recovery. You need to go beyond just an ordinary products liability claim.
