Latch Failure on Seatbelts

Seat belts are meant to save lives, and during rollover accidents, they are extremely important. A person is much more likely to be injured or killed if they are not wearing a seat belt because it is easy for passengers to be thrown from the vehicle or to make contact with the interior of the vehicle at a high level of force. Unfortunately, this can also happen even if the passenger believes they are properly buckled up. There have been multiple instances during car accidents where it appears that although the person buckled up, the latch failed at the critical moment to stay engaged with the seat belt.

Rollover accidents can be devastating, and when seat belt latches are faulty, it can make matters all the worse. If you or a loved one was injured in a rollover accident due to a faulty seat belt latch, the Willis Law Firm may be able to help you seek compensation for your accident.

Injuries Caused by Seat Belt Latch Failure

When a seat belt has manufacturing defects that cause the latch to fail, the consequences during a rollover accident can be extremely harmful. Common injuries from rollover accidents involving a failed seat belt latch include:

  • Traumatic head injuries
  • Spinal cord and neck injuries
  • Being thrown from the vehicle
  • Lacerations and broken bones

Although there have been efforts to improve the safety of seat belts, the fact is that flawed seat belt latches still make it into motor vehicles, causing harm to people in the event of an accident.
