Cedar Rapids Seat Belt Injury Lawyers
To compensate for the hazards inherent in the operation of a motor vehicle, the manufacturers of cars and trucks have been engaged in constant efforts to develop new technologies to protect drivers and passengers. Although there have been numerous safety features introduced which have indeed made crashes more survivable and reduced the severity of injuries sustained, those same safety features can cause serious problems if they are defective or malfunction.
Seat belt defects and malfunctions are particularly troubling because a seat belt constitutes the primary means of protection for a vehicle’s occupants. If you or a loved one has sustained injuries due to such a failure, then it may be possible to pursue a legal action against the manufacturer. Contact the Leehey Olson Law, P.C. to learn more.
