What Should You Do After A Car Accident?

Jacksonville Seat Belt Injury Lawyer

Government agencies and private organizations have been working for years to remind all of us about the importance of wearing a seatbelt while traveling in a car. In 1983, seatbelts even became a legal requirement for people of all ages. Encouraging the use of this safety feature is an important job; the majority of people who have been killed in car accidents were not wearing seatbelts.

Unfortunately, the sense of security people feel when they buckle their seatbelts is not always justified. If a seatbelt is poorly designed or manufactured, the people who use it can be put in serious danger. If you or a loved one has been injured by such a defect, contact Jacksonville seatbelt injury attorney Don Guthrie, PA at 904-296-1088. We can help you determine the best plan of action.

Dangerous Defects

Seatbelts are designed to hold us in place when a car stops or starts suddenly, or even rolls over. When they malfunction, people can be thrown into the windshield or out of the car entirely, resulting in severe and often fatal injuries. You may want to consult a Jacksonville defective seatbelt attorney if you or a member of your family has been injured by defects like:

  • A defective spool that allows the seatbelt to remain lax when pulled
  • Buckles that come undone too easily
  • Belt fabric that tears when force is applied
  • Faulty designs, such as lap-only belts that fail to hold people in place
  • Defective shoulder belts that cause neck or spine injuries

Filing a Jacksonville seatbelt injury claim can help you win fair compensation for your medical expenses, lost wages, and suffering.
