What is Your Experience in Cases Involving Defective Seat Belts?

One of the cases attorney Kenneth Rothweiler has worked on involved a 23-year-old young man whose car flipped over. Car manufacturers have to make sure cars are what’s called crash worthy, being able to withstand a crash. In this case the man’s elbow hit the housing where the seat belt buckle was, the seat belt came off, and he sustained serious injuries. The car manufacturer of the car knew that the seat belt was defective and didn’t do anything to replace the seat belt. Contact an attorney so that they can help you out in cases like these involving defective seat belts and car manufacturers who might be vested in their own interests instead of yours.

One of the cases I’m handling right now is of a 23 year old young man who was a first responder, he was a fireman and also did some medical training. And what he was doing was he was responding to a call one night, got into his car, went down the road. His car went off the road and it actually flipped over, and when a car flips over, car manufacturers have to make cars so that they’re what’s called crash worthy in other words, they can withstand a crash. His elbow hit the housing where the seat belt buckle was, the seat belt came off and he sustained serious injuries. He’s a quadriplegic right now. The case is about the manufacturer of the car knew that the seat belt was defective and didn’t do anything to replace the seat belt. And the reason they didn’t do anything to replace the seat belt is because there were 14 million other cars on the road with that type of seat belt. It was all about money, it was never about safety, and we sued the car manufacturer to rectify that situation. For more information about myself and our law firm please go to ERLegal.com.
