Product Liability Lawsuits for Defective Seatbelts

Car seatbelt

Searching for a lawyer for a defective seatbelt case in Fort Myers, FL? Car manufacturers recall many cars every year due to seatbelt design flaws. One such flaw is known as inertial unlatching. At a certain forward force, the seatbelt simply unlatches and does not do its job of restraining the passenger or driver.

When a seatbelt fails, injuries may occur from drivers or passengers striking part of the car directly in front of them, such as the steering column, the dashboard or even the windshield. We have seen cases where passengers have been ejected from the vehicle through the windshield. Certain manufacturers have continued to ignore warnings from General Motors that a new safety feature needs to be incorporated into the latch design since 1982.

Car Accidents Caused by Tread Separation and Tire Blowouts

There have been several high-profile product recalls in recent years over defective tires which are prone to tread separation and blowouts. When this occurs, the driver suddenly loses one quarter of the vehicle's stability, and may be forced into a collision. The vehicle may even be thrown into a rollover as the driver overcorrects in an attempt to regain control of the vehicle, a terrifying type of accident which is capable of causing catastrophic injuries or death.
