San Antonio Seatbelt Injury Lawyers
Seatbelts are a legally required safety feature for all passenger cars; in Texas and many other states, there are additional laws requiring adults and children to wear them. Despite the large degree of faith that consumers and lawmakers have placed in seatbelts, they are not always reliable safety devices. Sadly, serious injuries have been caused or exacerbated by seatbelts in motor vehicle accidents.

The San Antonio seatbelt defect attorneys of Chris Mayo Injury Lawyers have the knowledge, experience, and dedication to justice you need on your side. Call our offices today at (210) 999-9999.
Common Seatbelt Defects
When seatbelts function correctly, they can play a vital role in keeping people secure in the vehicle during a traffic accident. When they are poorly designed or built, however, they can pose significant dangers such as:
- Poorly fitting designs, which can cause spinal or organ damage in the event of a collision
- Defective spooling mechanisms, which can cause the belt to remain slack in a collision and fail to keep the passenger in place
- Defective locking mechanisms, which can come undone in a collision or be too difficult to undo in an emergency
- Belts made with low quality materials that tear when pressure is applied
The consequences of defects like these can be life-altering. If you are struggling with steep medical bills, lasting disability, lost wages, or other unfair losses caused by a negligent auto manufacturer, our San Antonio seatbelt injury attorneys will fight for the compensation you deserve.
At the offices of San Antonio seatbelt defect lawyers Chris Mayo Injury Lawyers, we believe that no one should have to suffer the consequences of a manufacturer’s negligence. To discuss how we can help you fight for justice, contact us at (210) 999-9999.
