What Happens When Safety Belts Aren’t Safe?

Posted on Feb 25, 2013 By Mark Leeds

Oregon law requires drivers and passengers to be buckled up when in a motor vehicle. Portland residents trust that their seatbelts will keep them safe in the event of an auto accident, and for the most part, that trust is well founded. Research shows that victims of motor vehicle collisions fare much better when properly buckled, in most cases. However, there have been instances when seatbelts have become detached, unbuckled, or failed to lock properly when a wreck occurs. If you believe that your injuries were caused by or worsened because of a defective seatbelt, a personal injury attorney can review your case to ascertain the extent to which you may be due financial compensation.

Seatbelts are required for drivers to help ensure their safety. However, when a seatbelt malfunctions due to faulty design or flawed workmanship, a Portland auto accident attorney will investigate your case and aggressively pursue whatever means of remuneration might be available to you, whether from the auto manufacturer, the seatbelt maker, or some other third party.
