Exploring All Options In Accidents Involving Seat Belt Failures
For most of us, putting on a seat belt is a nearly automatic habit to which we give little thought. We rely heavily on these restraint systems to protect us in a collision, and research has suggested that confidence is well-placed in a large percentage of situations.
However, there are times when seat belt systems designed to save lives do indeed fail in some pivotal way, thus causing injuries or deaths that would otherwise not have happened. When the restraints on which we all rely fail in a discernible way, accident victims have the right to seek compensation from seat belt manufacturers and other responsible parties. The attorneys of Edelman, Krasin & Jaye, PLLC, stand prepared to fight for the rights of those harmed by defective seat belts and secure the resources to which they are entitled.
Who Is Liable For Seat Belt Car Accidents?
When it comes to seeking justice and accountability in the aftermath of a seat belt failure, victims must consider the full range of potential defendants that may share in liability. In addition to major carmakers themselves, it is often possible to pursue compensation from the original equipment manufacturers from whom those automakers purchased the restraint systems installed in their vehicles. Any entity involved in the design, manufacture and marketing of seat belt systems ultimately shown to be defective can be found to share liability.
The accident attorneys at Edelman, Krasin & Jaye, PLLC, understand the difficulties faced in the aftermath of a seat belt failure and stand prepared to conduct a comprehensive investigation of the facts, align with engineering and medical experts, and diligently fight for every available dollar of financial compensation.
