Seat Back Defects
Seat Back Defects Attorney
Have you been injured in a motor vehicle accident because of defective car seat back? It is not an uncommon injury. In fact, this injury occurs more often than most motorists realize because of poorly constructed seat back and design malfunctions in their operating mechanisms. These defective car seat back occur because car manufacturers continue to ignore the warning signs and their engineers when constructing the seatbacks that they use in their vehicles.
The safety of seat back are brought into question in any motor vehicle accident but are especially brought into question during a rear end collision. The majority of cars on the road today have seating systems that directly cause injuries or exacerbate preexisting injuries. If a car is hit from behind, the vehicle is thrust forward as well as the passengers. But once the vehicle comes to a stop the passengers are then thrust backward into their seats. A properly constructed seatback should be able to stand tall and take the force from the body hitting it. Defective car seatbacks will collapse when a body hits it and cause injuries to the passenger. If the seatback stays upright during the collision then it will protect the occupant’s body from injury.

If a seat back is defective and collapses when a body is forced against it, the end result can be a passenger being ejected from the car or having the driver lose control of the car, causing another accident. Most commonly the passengers will be thrown around in the car, hitting the steering wheel or the dashboard before the airbag is deployed. Injuries that can be sustained are:
- Brain trauma
- Head trauma
- Loss of limb
- Severe blood loss
