Seat Failure/Collapse

Cleveland Auto Seat Failure Attorneys Representing Injury Victims Nationwide

Auto components including seats, seat belts, airbags, tires, brakes, transmissions, steering and roofs should be designed and constructed so as to protect occupants of the car in the event of a crash. When an auto defect such as collapse of the front seat in a rear-end collision causes injury to a client of Lowe Eklund Wakefield Co., LPA, we devote our full attention to getting to the bottom of why and how the injury occurred, and who is ultimately responsible.

Call or e-mail the ohio personal injury law offices of Lowe Eklund Wakefield Co., LPA, to schedule a no-obligation consultation after an injury caused by auto seat back failure.

Rear-end collisions at low speeds should normally be minor fender-benders. Auto manufacturers today have the opportunity to design and build cars with the benefit of 100 years of accumulated knowledge on car design, construction and safety. A crashworthy vehicle should be able to sustain an impact such as a typical rear-end collision.

Auto Seat Failure and Injury

However, in some models of cars, a rear-end collision may maim or kill the occupants due to defective design. Auto seat defects can nullify the effectiveness of safety features such as seatbelts and airbags.

Front seats with adjustable tilt mechanisms are put together with flimsy, substandard gears in some car models. If those gears strip upon impact, the front seat may collapse and fall into the back seat. The person sitting in the front seat is ejected to the back seat, with disastrous consequences for anyone in the back seat as well as for the person whose body slips through the seatbelts in such a case.

Auto seat back failure is unacceptable in our view both as compassionate human beings and as lawyers. We offer clients the benefit of our years of experience bringing successful lawsuits against car manufacturers who settled for poor design to cut costs.

Were you or was your close family member seriously injured in a car accident as a result of a front seat collapsing in a rear-end collision? Call or e-mail our law firm to schedule a consultation with a Cleveland auto seat failure attorney about personal injury and car seat defects.
