Seat Back Defects

Your car is designed to protect you from injury in the case of an accident. Seat belts are designed to prevent your body from flying out of the seat, however some cars are built with defective seats which in the event of an accident can collapse backwards, rendering the seat belt useless and often resulting in the ejection of the passenger from the seat or car.

Seat back defects can be extremely dangerous and in some cases, fatal. If you or a loved one has been injured in a car wreck as a result of a seat back defect, you could be entitled to financial compensation for your suffering and physical endangerment.
