Holding Manufacturers Liable
Seat belts and airbags are meant to protect you when you are in a car accident. Unfortunately, there are many individuals whose car accident injuries are actually worsened because of seat belts or airbags. This occurs when the seat belt or airbag is defective, meaning that it does not actually work as it was intended to work.
Such defects are typically due to design or manufacturing flaws. Vehicle part manufacturers have an obligation to make products that function correctly—especially considering the fact that mistakes in the design or manufacturing of these products can end up harming large numbers of innocent drivers and passengers.

If you or a loved one was harmed because of a faulty seat belt or airbag, it is important that you take immediate action against the liable party.

Types of Seat Belt & Airbag Defects
There are many different ways in which a seat belt or airbag could malfunction. Here are a few examples:
- Seat belt unlatches when it is not supposed to (inertial unlatching)
- Seat belt makes the sound of being latched and appearing to be latched when it actually is not (false latching)
- Seat belt has too much slack during an accident (retractor failure)
- Airbag deploys prematurely
- Airbag deploys too late
- Airbag fails to deploy
- Airbag’s fails to fully inflate
When you are injured due to a vehicle safety component that was not made properly, you should not be responsible to pay for the damages. This is the responsibility of the manufacturer or any other party involved in creating the defect.
Our legal team can research whether there have been any previous recalls of or safety investigations into the product, and we can also explore whether the product actually met the industry’s safety standards.
Furthermore, we can help you gather the evidence that shows that you would not have been injured or would have been less severely injured had your seat belt or airbag worked correctly.
