Defective Seat Belt

As a product liability law firm with a proven nationwide record of success, Lowe Eklund Wakefield Co., LPA has been at the forefront of the fight against greedy companies that put profits before safety.  Seat belts are not a place to cut corners or pinch pennies, and when automotive manufacturers release defective seat belts they must be held responsible.

You count on your seat belt to protect you, your children, and anyone else in a motor vehicle.  When car and truck makers do not take the reasonable care required, defective or malfunctioning seatbelts can lead to serious bodily harm and wrongful death.

The product liability lawyers of Lowe Eklund Wakefield Co., LPA can help you and your family pursue justice when a seat belt is defective for any reason, including:

  • Design defect
  • Manufacturing defect
  • Malfunction due to negligent maintenance
  • Cheap/shoddy component parts

Seat Belt Recalls

In 2017, Ford recalled over 100,000 Fusions because a cheap seat belt component could break, causing injuries or death.  That same year Hyundai recalled over 400,000 Sonata and Sonata Hybrids because of a defective seat belt.

Seat belt recalls occur routinely, and these recalls show just how easy it is for a greedy manufacturer to release hundreds of thousands of faulty products and defective seat belts into the market.

If you or a loved one were injured by a defective seatbelt, whether or not the seat belt or vehicle were subject to a product recall, you have the right to seek damages.

With law office locations in Ohio, Lowe Eklund Wakefield Co., LPA has a track record of success representing clients throughout the country in their product liability claims.  Contact us now to discuss your potential seat belt lawsuit and learn how we can help you hold greedy and negligent manufacturers accountable.
