Representing Clients Injured by Seatbelts and Airbags
In a vehicle, the seatbelt and airbag are in place to provide safety measures to drivers and passengers in the event of a car accident. However, these protective devices are also sometimes the cause of injuries. While a seatbelt or airbag-related injury is much better than an individual being ejected from the vehicle or hitting the windshield, the injury from the protective devices can still be severe.

West Virginia Auto Defect Lawyers
A range of defects may be the reason that the airbag or seatbelt caused injuries. There may have been installation, repair or workmanship errors. The seatbelt or airbag may have been designed or produced defectively, and therefore was defective from the time it was installed in the vehicle.
Types of Airbag Injuries and Seatbelt Injuries
Due to the force of an airbag deployment, or the force of a car accident that results in the seatbelt restraining a passenger, there are many different types of minor and severe injuries that may result from the devices, including:
- Brain injuries
- Head trauma
- Neck injuries
- Back injuries
- Spinal cord injuries
- Internal injuries
- Facial lacerations and injuries
- Broken bones
- Soft tissue injuries
Seatbelts and airbags affect children differently than adults, due to their size and weight. We represent families whose children have been injured by improperly installed seatbelts and airbags, in addition to other defects in the protective equipment that may have resulted in the child’s seatbelt and airbag injuries.
