Vehicles’ seat belts are supposed to protect you and your loved ones in the event of an accident. Ideally, they will prevent you from being flung from your vehicle should the windows break and, if they perform as they are supposed to, should prevent you from hitting your head and body against dangerous objects in your vehicle. Unfortunately, sometimes we cannot rely on seat belts to perform these essential duties, since manufacturers of seat belts can act negligently by releasing vehicles to consumers with defective seat belts.
If you or someone you love has been the victim of a seat belt injury in a car accident, you could be entitled to financial compensation for the negligent manufacturer or designer.

Types of Injury
Seat belts can cause a number of injuries, but some are reported more often than others. Among the more commonly reported are:
- Neck injuries
- Back injuries
Generally, seat belt injuries stem from some kind of defect in the seat belt, like the belt not locking properly or it not sitting correctly on a passenger, particularly a child. In these cases, victims of a defective seat belt could be due compensation to help them cover any costs that they incur as a result of their injuries.
