Houston Defective Seat Belt Lawyers

Seat belts can be one of the most important safety features of passenger vehicles. In fact, when car accidents happen, being buckled up with a properly functioning seat belt can reduce the risk of fatal injuries by 45 percent – and the risk of moderate to critical injuries by about 50 percent.1

Tragically, however, not everyone who is diligent about buckling up will be protected by the seat belt. When seat belts are not properly designed, manufactured or installed, they can malfunction or fail. That, in turn, can put buckled up vehicle occupants at a serious risk of suffering life-threatening injuries in traffic crashes.
