Research data, peer reviewed, shows that when an auto or light truck has an accident, the back portion of the seat on the driver’s side sometimes breaks. This can, and does, cause serious injuries. What was most noted by experts who compiled the data is that this is even true in cars, SUVs and light trucks which meet the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s (NHTSA) most current safety guidelines. This concern does not just involve the driver’s seat but also involves the front passenger’s seat back, according to qualified specialists. These specialists note that these problems are not limited to any particular car, truck or SUV manufacturer and are a dangerous condition which is well-known and has been ignored for far too much time.

These car seat failures often occur when there are rear-end, hit from behind type, accidents. The forces unleashed by this kind of crash are transferred from the impact to the back of the seat, which then cracks and buckles under that amount of force. The person sitting in the seat is then violently thrown and injured, even when wearing a seatbelt. Injuries which are common injuries after such accidents can include lacerated organs, leading to internal bleeding, paralysis and spinal injuries. Activists who are familiar with these seat back problems explain that any rear seat passengers in the vehicle, frequently small children, are also likely to suffer from serious wounds and injuries because of this defect. The child victims have suffered from disfiguring facial injuries, head injuries and have even died after they were struck by seat pieces. Claims and cases have been fully documented of headrests literally breaking off and hitting back seat passengers also.

Car safety associations and advocates have shown outrage over the federal government’s failure and car maker failure to properly require fixes or to just fix this dangerous hazard. These groups and people have shown that the applicable federal regulations need to be changed to actually force car and car component manufacturers to install reinforcing material and/or redesign the seats so that the seats don’t snap or collapse when the vehicle is in a high force auto or truck collision.
