Types of Seat Belt Defects
A seat belt is a more complicated system than many individuals may realize. It consists of many parts, any of which could malfunction if it is not designed, manufactured, or repaired properly. In many cases, the defective parts of the seat belt are:
- The belt itself
- Locking mechanisms
If any of these parts does not work as intended, drivers or passengers may be at risk for suffering excessive restraint, which may break ribs and cause internal damage, or for suffering insufficient restraint, which may cause occupants to be ejected from vehicles or crash against blunt objects.
