Modern automobiles have many different features that are designed to protect a vehicle’s occupants in the event of an accident. Seat belts are critically important as they can prevent a driver or passenger from forcibly striking the dashboard or being ejected from the vehicle. Unfortunately, when a seatbelt is negligently designed, made, or installed, it can needlessly increase the likelihood that an individual will suffer serious injury.
