Three Things You Need to Do if a Defective Seat Belt Caused Your Missouri Accident Injury

It wasn’t just the actions of another driver that caused you to get hurt in a Missouri accident. Instead, your injuries were caused by, or compounded by, the failure of your seat belt to do what it was designed to do at the time of a crash. As you recover from your physical injuries, it is important to know what you have to do to protect your legal and financial rights after a defective seat belt accident.

Three Things You Need to Do if You Think the Buckle Was Broken

In some cases, a defective seat belt may be readily apparent at the time of the accident. However, other cases occur in which you might not know whether the seat belt was defective right away. If you have any suspicion that a defective seat belt might have caused or compounded your Missouri accident injuries, then it is important to:

  1. Maintain the seat belt. Do not get rid of the car or get the possibly defective seat belt fixed yet. Instead, make sure that you maintain the seat belt in the condition that it was in immediately after the accident.
  2. Understand what caused your injuries. You will need to know why you were hurt and whether your injuries were caused by a defective seat belt or someone else’s negligent or deliberate actions.
  3. Get help. It can be very difficult to figure all of this out on your own. An experienced Missouri defective product lawyer can help you understand your rights, investigate your case, and pursue fair damages for your injuries, as appropriate.

All of this may seem overwhelming immediately after your accident, but you don’t have to do it all alone.
