Wisconsin Seat Belt Defect Lawyers
Wearing a seat belt greatly increases your chances of avoiding serious injury when in an accident, and in Wisconsin, state law dictates that all passengers must wear seatbelts. Unfortunately, seat belts do not always work correctly and, thus, may not prevent the occupant from harm or could actually cause further harm. Because car manufacturers are responsible for the safety of their products, they should be held accountable for any negligence that leads to injuries from defective seat belts.
If you or someone close to you was injured because their seat belt was defective, the car manufacturer may be liable for your losses and injuries. Our Wisconsin seat belt defect lawyers of Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. fight to protect our client’s rights when they’ve unduly suffered.

Common Seat Belt Defects
A properly working seat belt will restrain the occupant and keep them from dangerously impacting objects in front of them or being thrown from the vehicle. Unfortunately, a seat belt may not function properly in important ways, such as:
- Seat belt fabric tears
- Impaired latch which unbuckles the occupant
- Locking mechanism failure, letting the belt stretch in an accident
When seat belts malfunction, the vehicle’s occupants could suffer severe physical and emotional trauma, in addition to being saddled with expensive medical bills. These repercussions resulting from accidents involving defective seat belts should be the responsibility of the manufacturer.
If you or a loved one was injured in an accident because of a defective seat belt, you may want to seek legal representation to pursue compensation for your injuries and expenses.
