Inertia Buckle Release
When someone buckles up, they are taking the appropriate measures to protect themselves as much as possible in the event of a car accident. Seat belts are meant to hold a person in place when they are in a collision or a rollover accident. Without a properly working seat belt, a person can easily be thrown from the vehicle, resulting in even more devastating injuries. Sadly, seat belts are not always reliable. With some seat belts, defects cause what is known as inertia seat buckle release, causing the buckle to release at a crucial time.
If you or a loved one was injured in a rollover accident due to a defective seat belt, the experienced legal team at the Willis Law Firm is prepared to potentially represent you against the vehicle’s manufacturer in a court of law. For more information on how you can possibly obtain compensation for a defective seat belt, contact our offices today at 800-883-9858.
Consequences of Inertia Buckle Release
The consequences of a seat belt failure can be devastating. When someone’s seat belt fails to do its job at the critical moment, potential consequences include:
- Being thrown against the interior of the vehicle
- Being thrown completely from the vehicle
- Contact with the roof, causing spine and head injuries
Of the two types of seat buckles – side release and end release – both are capable of suddenly releasing if they are defective, causing a person to lose the protection a seat belt is supposed to offer.
