Practice Area : Seatbelt Defects
The law offices of Gillin, Jacobson, Ellis, Larsen & Lucey has over thirty years’ experience handling cases involving vehicle accidents and seatbelt related defects and injuries.
A defective seatbelt can result in serious injuries during a car accident. Seatbelts are designed to act as a restraint in accidents or sudden stops, and a correctly manufactured seatbelt should slow the restrained person’s body down to a complete halt during any sudden stop or crash. Unfortunately, even vehicles designed to the highest standards have been manufactured with defective seatbelts, which can result in serious injury and death for the car’s passengers. Our Northern California seatbelt defect lawyers can help in cases involving a suspected seatbelt injury.
Several recent seatbelt lawsuits have resulted in the recall of thousands of vehicles made in the United States and in Japan. Many of these seatbelts were defective in their design. The defective seatbelts were found to have several faults causing them to unbuckle during a crash or sudden stop. Many deaths and serious injuries have been attributed to these defective seatbelts, and defective seatbelt settlements have awarded many millions of dollars to victims of seatbelt injury nationwide.
Defective seatbelts may be a small but significant part of your auto accident case. Because a faulty seatbelt may be only one element in a larger case, our Oakland – based seatbelt defect lawyers will thoroughly investigate every possibility in your case. By retaining competent and experienced legal assistance, victims of seatbelt defects can ensure that their rights are protected.
It is important to contact an experienced defective seatbelt lawyer as soon as possible. Several California statutes of limitation are in effect, which makes it important to file a claim as soon after the accident as possible. Once these important deadlines have passed, your claim cannot be filed.
