If you have been involved in a car accident, but you were not wearing your seatbelt, your injuries may be more serious than if you’d had your seatbelt on. In order to receive compensation for your losses, it is a good idea to hire an experienced car accident lawyer.
Often times, a seatbelt injury claim will require reviewing past medical records to determine what injuries the seatbelt caused. This can be confusing for the average consumer.
A car accident lawyer will aid you in the claim process and help you review your medical records so that you can show what injuries and medical bills you sustained as a direct result from the seatbelt during your car accident.
An injury caused by a seatbelt may also be grounds for filing a product liability claim. An experienced car accident lawyer will evaluate your case and determine if your injuries were sustained from a defective product.
It has been shown that seat belts save lives, and it is important to buckle your seat belt every time you sit in a car. However, you do not deserve to be injured by the car you were driving in.
Your seatbelt injury claim may require lots of work and talking to many different people from the car manufacturer to the other people involved in the car accident.
