Defective Seatbelts and Cars that Are Not Crash Worthy May Lead to Serious Injuries in Auto Accidents

In what has become an all too common occurrence, people are killed, or maimed, in auto accidents because the motor vehicle they were driving, or riding in was not crash worthy.

Consumers may be able to safeguard themselves by ensuring their automobile is crash worthy. An important element in determining a vehicle’s crash worthiness is the design of its roof and passenger cabin. To be crash worthy, the vehicle’s roof must be strong enough to withstand the possibility of a rollover without succumbing to a roof collapse over the driver’s seat or passenger cabin.

If the occupant restraint system or seatbelt is defective, the occupants of a vehicle can also be placed at increased risk. In the event of an auto accident, the defective seatbelt will not be able to adequately keep the driver or passenger in their seat. This raises the likelihood of the vehicle’s occupants sustaining life threatening neck, head, and spinal injuries. Devices such as a friction lock latch plate system, a rollover activated belt pretensioner or a harness device seatbelt can help to save lives during an auto accident.

If you have sustained serious injuries because you were in a BMW 325i, Chrysler Minivan, Audi 5000 station wagon, Mitsubishi Montero Sport, Honda Prelude, Chevrolet S10 Blazer, Ford Bronco, Honda Night Hawk Motorcycle, Chevrolet Astro Van, Chevrolet Silverado pickup truck, Ford Taurus, Chevrolet Sprint, Chevrolet S-10 pick-up, Ford F-800 truck, Suzuki Samurai, Jeep Grand Wagoneer, or another vehicle that did not stand up in an auto accident, you may wish to speak with an attorney about a defective product liability lawsuit. Levy Konigsberg LLP auto accident lawyers has offices in New York, New Jersey, California, Georgia, Washington, and Maryland, and has provided legal assistance to the victims of serious accidents for over two decades.
