Seatbelts and Car Accidents

Posted on 06/28/2013Back

There is no question that seatbelts save lives in car accidents. However, even when used appropriately, seatbelts can actually cause harm in accidents as well. What’s more, seatbelts can malfunction, resulting in catastrophic injury and even death.

If you or a loved one has suffered injury from a seatbelt in an accident anywhere in Minnesota, please call 612-436-5026 today to schedule a free consultation with one of our Minnesota car accident lawyers.

Seatbelt Injuries

Seatbelts can keep you from hitting a headrest or windshield, but may in the process result in injuries such as:

  • Broken or fractured bones
  • Hip and pelvis injuries
  • Internal organ damage
  • Cracked or broken ribs
  • Chest, shoulder, and neck injury

If you sustain one of these injuries, you may have recourse against the manufacturer of the automobile in addition to claims against other drivers involved in the accident. This is something that is best determined by one of our Minnesota car accident lawyers during a thorough investigation.

Even if an accident was your fault, if a defective seatbelt played a part in your injury, you may be entitled to compensation. We would be happy to discuss this with you in greater detail during your free initial consultation.

If you have been injured by a seatbelt during an accident that took place anywhere in Minnesota, our car accident lawyers can help. Please contact GoldenbergLaw, PLLC today to schedule a free consultation.
