Seat Belt Injury Lawyer in Quincy, MA
Also Serving Clients throughout Norfolk County
There are laws in place that mandate the use of seat belts in the United States. They have been proven to save lives time and again; however, they can also inflict injuries. The benefits outweigh the costs of wearing one, but defective seat belts can cause serious damage. If a car manufacturer creates flawed seat belts that bring you harm, then you may be owed compensation.
An experienced car accident attorney from our firm may be able to prove that you were in fact injured, and that the seat belt was defective. We will have to work to prove that the defect directly caused your injury. To succeed in your auto product liability claim, you will need skilled legal representation on your side. We at Flanagan & Associates are ready to fight for you to receive what you deserve.
Seat Belt Injuries & Compensation
In the moment when you need you car's seat belt to work, spooling may keep your seat belt from stiffening and holding you back. If it does not do its job, then you can be slammed full force into the dashboard or steering wheel. A defect can also lead to seat belt whiplash, as the impact from the crash throws you into the seat belt. This can cause muscle tears, sprains and damage along your spinal cord. Lap belts and shoulder restraints can cause broken bones and other painful injuries that entail expensive medical treatment.
Even more serious, seat belts can cause internal bleeding and organ damage. Not only can it take some time for the injury to become apparent, but these injuries can quickly become life-threatening. In fact, it can take a full 24 hours before you are totally aware of a catastrophic injury. After an accident, it is advisable that you go to a doctor as soon as possible. The sooner you can treat a medical condition, the better your chances at full recovery are.
In the aftermath of a car accident, injuries can render you unable to work. As you are kept from earning wages, you may further be faced with extensive car bills and astronomical medical fees. If someone else is responsible for your injuries, then you should not have to face these consequences alone. All of these injuries can be due to poor design, faulty manufacture, or defective materials. If this is your case, then you may deserve compensation for your pain and suffering, damage to your car, medical treatment, lost wages, and perhaps more.
