A properly protected driver or passenger will often suffer only minor injuries or no injuries in a fender-bender type accident. But when some car part malfunctions or is defective, an otherwise minor car accident can result in serious injuries. This is often the case when seatbelts are defective. A detailed investigation after a serious accident should include a close inspection of the vehicle. When failed seatbelts are discovered, the path to compensation may be through a lawsuit holding a manufacturer or installer responsible through a product liability claim.
Representing Clients Throughout Ohio, Injured Because Of Defective Seatbelts
Were your injuries or your loved one’s fatal injuries the result of a defective seatbelt accident? Ohio personal injury and wrongful death attorneys at Clark, Perdue & List Co, LPA, offer free initial consultations. We can explain how to get an investigation underway to determine whether defective seatbelts were the real cause of injury.
Defective product cases can be quite expensive to investigate. It is usually cost-effective to invest in this kind of inspection only when the value of the potential settlement or verdict is enough to cover those costs as well as medical bills, lost wage replacement, and pain and suffering. Typically, only catastrophic injury cases offer the prospect of bringing sufficient compensation to cover the costs of a product liability investigation and other costs. To learn whether your auto accident case falls in this category, request a free consultation with a lawyer at Clark, Perdue & List Co, LPA.
