Seatbelts are supposed to help keep drivers and passengers safe in the event of a car accident. However, when seatbelts fail, serious injuries can occur. When seatbelts break during an accident, passengers or drivers can be thrown from the vehicle, suffer serious head injuries or be killed on impact. Unfortunately, seat belt latches often give out under pressure since they are often made from lower-quality materials.
While automobile manufacturers do understand that seatbelts can save lives, they often fail to properly test seatbelts in high-speed situations. As a result, belts can become unlatched during an accident; this is a seat belt failure. In addition, some seatbelts are not properly installed and can be too loose to prevent a driver or passenger from being thrown into the dashboard or windshield.
