Inertia Buckle Release Lawyers
Seat belts are supposed to be a reliable way to prevent additional injuries in car accidents by preventing people from being thrown into the interior of the car or being ejected from the car completely. Unfortunately, there are multiple ways in which a seat belt can fail to protect the occupants of a vehicle. One of these ways is through inertia seat buckle release. When an accident occurs, particularly a rollover accident, the impact may cause the seat belt buckle to release the latch even when the button is not pushed. As one might assume, this is extremely dangerous and leads to much more severe injuries in rollover accidents than it would if seat belts did not fail.
Seat belts are one of the most important ways people protect themselves from harm. When this safety measure fails, it may be due to negligence on the part of the vehicle manufacturer.

Consequences of Inertia Buckle Release
Inertia seat buckle release is a serious problem in a large number of vehicles. The potential consequences of this defect include:
- Being thrown from the vehicle
- Crashing into the interior of the vehicle
- Head, neck, or spine injuries in rollovers due to roof contact
- Broken bones and lacerations
There are two different types of seat belt buckles. One group has a release button on the side, the other has a release button on the end. Unfortunately, both are capable of suddenly releasing in the midst of an accident.
