Types of Injuries Caused by Seat Belts

Our auto defects attorney and senior partner, Brian Chase discusses the issues in the auto industry of putting profit before safety.


The following is a list of injuries most commonly associated with faulty or defective seat belt restraints suffered in automobile accidents.

  • Traumatic Brain Injury
  • Closed Head Trauma
  • Other types of Head and Brain Injuries
  • Spinal Cord Injuries
  • Paraplegia
  • Quadriplegia
  • Death

Many secondary injuries are also the result of the use of seat belts, such as:

  • Contusions
  • Cracked Sternum
  • Aneurysm
  • Burst Appendix
  • Ruptured Spleen
  • Vertebrae Injuries
  • Soft-Tissue Damage

Although the use of seat belts has been strongly promoted in the United States for years, many children and adults suffer from serious seat belt related injuries each year. Listed below are just a few of the injuries which may occur as the result of faulty or defective seat belts:

  • Concussions
  • Spinal cord injury
  • Brain or head injury
  • Paralysis

For over three decades, many of the restrain system manufacturers and major vehicle makers in the U.S have been aware that certain seat belt systems are poorly made, and have the ability to unlatch in the event of an accident, causing serious injury, and even death.
