Attorneys for Injuries Caused by Defective Car Seatback Injuries and Death Civil Lawsuits
The seats in a motor vehicle are an integral component of the vehicle’s safety measures. Sturdy seats that withstand impact help protect the body from even more damage in the event of a crash. Headrests also help prevent whiplash or reduce the chances of suffering a whiplash injury if you are in a crash. However, design flaws and manufacturing defects in the seats of a vehicle can cause severe injuries or death if the seats fail during an accident.
Seats are designed to repel the forces in the event of an accident. However, the person sitting in a seat that fails if the vehicle is involved in a car accident could sustain life-threatening injuries, head injuries, and spinal cord injuries, as well as pelvic and leg injuries. Additionally, the person seated behind the failing seat could be hurt by the malfunctioning seat as well. Several children had died from blunt force injuries when seatbacks broke, and the person sitting in front of the child landed on them.
One of the greatest risks of a seat failure could occur in the event of a rear-end collision. A seat that collapses in a rear-end crash could pull the driver away from the steering wheel, resulting in a loss of control over the car and resulting in more substantial damage. This can happen in a rear-end crash when the victim is propelled by the crash into the seatbelt and then suddenly snapped back into the seat by the restraining belt. The force of the passenger being pulled back into the seat can snap the hinges at the bottom of the seat, causing the seat to fall down from its upright position.
The victim of a seatback failure or the family of a person killed when a seat back failed in an accident could have a legal claim for damages based on product liability against the manufacturer of the seats as well as the vehicle manufacturer.
