Louisville Seat Belt Defects Attorneys

The state of Kentucky has a “primary” seat belt law, which means that everyone in a vehicle is required to wear a seat belt at all times. Although seat belts are generally marketed as life-saving devices that keep both drivers and passengers safe in the event of an accident, not every seat belt is reliable. In fact, faulty or defective seat belts not only fail to keep you safe in an accident, but they can also cause life-altering injuries.

When a seat belt fails to protect you, the designer or manufacturer at fault should be held responsible for this negligence. If you or someone you know has suffered from a faulty seat belt, you may be eligible for financial compensation to help pay for medical bills and other damages. To learn more about your legal options for pursuing compensation, contact the Louisville seat belt defects lawyer of the Sampson Law Firm today at 502-584-5050.

Common Seat Belt Defects

Although seat belts are estimated to save thousands of lives every year, they can also cause serious harm when they aren’t properly designed or manufactured. Some of the most common seat belt defects that may leave you temporarily or permanently disabled in the event of an accident include:

  • Release buttons that stick
  • Malfunctioning buckles that come undone in an accident
  • Low-quality belt material that tears or rips easily
  • Faulty locking mechanisms

After an auto accident, you can be left facing costly medical bills and property repair costs, especially if your seat belt malfunctions. Take the first step toward securing financial compensation from the party at fault by calling a skilled and dedicated attorney today.
