$2,400,000 Defective Seatbelt Design

Posted on Wednesday, March 18th, 2020

Two brothers were in the backseat of a pickup truck which had lap belts but no shoulder harness when it was involved in a collision. Owing to the design of the seat, the lap belt had a propensity to “creep up,” resulting in significant abdominal injuries to both brothers. One of the brothers died from the injuries sustained. Through aggressive discovery, OnderLaw, LLC discovered when the truck was sold in Europe, it was sold with shoulder harnesses, but the manufacturer did not install shoulder harnesses in the United States version to save $7.00 per belt.
