DEFECTIVE SEATBELT LAWYER IN TAMPA
Did You Suffer A Serious Injury?
Car crashes are often the most dangerous event in someone’s life, and the implementation and advancement of safety features has saved countless lives over the years when they work as intended. Unfortunately, these features we trust to keep ourselves safe, like seatbelts, can still fail due to poor design, maintenance and/or manufacturing, putting the lives of the driver and their passengers at risk of suffering a serious and potentially fatal injury. If you were seriously injured after your seatbelt failed to provide the protection it’s supposed to, you may be able to file a product liability lawsuit and fight for the compensation you need to cover any damages or medical expenses incurred.
At Robert Sparks Attorneys, our Tampa product liability lawyers are passionate about providing injured victims with the experienced representation they require to fight for the compensation they deserve. Through our tireless efforts, we have successfully recovered millions of dollars in verdicts and settlements for our clients, and will continue to work with those in need for as long as someone needs our help. Contact our firm today to discuss your auto defect case with one of our lawyers and begin planning out what to do next.
Dangers Of Defective Seatbelts
Approximately 12,000 lives are saved by seatbelts every single year according to data provided by federal agencies. In most cases, these lives are saved when their seatbelt prevents what’s known as the “second collision”, which occurs after the initial collision of your vehicle into the oncoming object. This second collision occurs between the occupant of the vehicle and the vehicle itself. Seatbelts prevent this from occurring by automatically locking in place, effectively pinning the occupant to their seat. Some common issues that can lead to seatbelt failure include:
- Faulty locking retractors
- Unlatching when tugged on or pulled at
- Providing an inadequate amount of tension during a crash
- Appearing to be securely latched when it is not
