When Seat Backs Fail

Try and imagine yourself driving along one of your city’s streets when you get rear-ended by a vehicle going 30 miles per hour. Impact forces from the crash push your total weight back, quite hard, against your seat back, which then collapses. You fall away backwards from your steering wheel, and go crashing into the rear seat. Even worse, imagine that your child is in the seat directly behind you, just sitting there.

Chrysler, GM and Ford— and all the large auto manufacturers are well aware of the bad problems potentially caused by seat backs which are unsafe. They often make the argument that the seat backs which they use meet all safety requirements. The main problem, however, is that these safety standards are not nearly strict enough to actually prevent deaths and injuries caused by these failures of seat backs. Carabin Shaw’s Seat Back Failure Attorneys in San Antonio know these inadequate safety standards all too well. We are ready to litigate on your behalf even against the “official” safety standards if they do not mandate enough protection for you and your passengers. Give us a call today.

Seat Backs do Collapse

Seat backs have a tendency to fail during rear-end collisions. These defective seat backs can also do fail while operating your vehicle under normal driving conditions. Failures of seat backs can cause both fatalities and injuries in two different ways. The first way involves an injury to the occupant of the seat which collapses.

When seat backs fail, any occupant can fall backwards from the seat back as it collapses and hit their shoulders or head on any hard surface which is behind them. This can result in severe spinal cord or head damage.

Catastrophic Injuries to Unsuspecting Passengers in the Rear Seats

The second unfortunate way people get injured when there are seat back failures is when the collapsed seat impacts the back seat passengers. These are frequently children. Such passengers can suffer catastrophic injuries to the chest and head and horrible brain injuries. Many of these people do not survive the accidents.
