Detroit Seat Belt Injuries Attorney

Automobile designers and producers understand the need to reduce driving hazards and minimize injuries to passengers who are involved in accidents. One way in which they attempt to support this aim is by designing and implementing new and innovative automotive safety features. While these may be helpful, often the most basic methods of protecting passengers are still the most effective.

Seat belts have been a standard passenger safety feature on automobiles for decades and remain one of the most reliable. However, under some circumstances they can actually cause harm to an individual. If you have suffered injuries caused by your seat belt, you may be able to pursue financial compensation through a civil lawsuit.

Seat Belt Injuries

No one suspects that the device they are using to protect them may actually prove to be rather dangerous. While seat belts help to restrain passengers in the event of an accident, there are a number of different injuries which may result, including:

  • Severe bruising
  • Internal bleeding
  • Nerve damage
  • Bone fractures
  • Severe lacerations
  • Neck injury
  • Strangulation

You should be able to trust that the safety devices installed by the manufacturer of your automobile will not directly cause you to suffer physical injury. Regrettably, this is too frequently not the case, and it may be necessary to consider seeking legal action.
