Oklahoma Seat Belt Injury Lawyers

Since the first vehicle with seat belts was made available to the public in the 1800s, car manufacturers have made considerable advancements in automotive safety features and technology. All vehicles are now given an overall safety rating, which is made available for consumers to consider prior to purchase. Airbags, seat belts, anti-lock brakes and power steering all contribute to the safety of a particular car, and each serves an important safety function. However, if any one of these safety systems malfunctions, accidents and serious injuries may occur.

If you or someone you know has been injured in a car accident that was caused by a defective or malfunctioning seat belt, contact the Oklahoma seat belt injury attorneys of the Abel Law Firm, as you may be eligible to receive compensation for your losses. Call (405) 239-7046 today to schedule a free initial consultation with a legal professional.

Common Seat Belt Injuries

While the National Highway Traffic and Safety Administration (NHTSA) estimates that seat belts save approximately 9,500 lives per year, a defective or malfunctioning seat belt can cause injuries to occupants. If a seat belt fails to engage in the event of a collision, occupants could suffer from injuries such as:

  • Bone fractures or breaks
  • Brain injury
  • Concussions
  • Contusions
  • Head injury
  • Internal organ damage and/or bleeding
  • Paralysis
  • Paraplegia
  • Spinal cord injury
  • Death

If you have been the victim of a defective or malfunctioning seat belt, you may be eligible to receive compensation for your losses, including medical expenses, property damages, lost wages, pain and suffering, or the wrongful death of a loved one.
