A seat belt is defective if it does not protect a passenger, during an accident, from injuries sustained inside the vehicle. According to the U.S. Department of Transportation’s National Highway Safety Administration (NHSTA), in 2002, over 2.9 million people were injured by seat belts, and seat belt injuries caused 43,000 deaths. Seat belts can be defective because of an automobile manufacturer and their failure to properly install the belt, because of faulty design of the belt or a malfunction in the creation of the belt. Faulty seat belts can become unlatched during an accident or they may become loose or tear apart, leaving the driver or passenger without proper security or safety.
