Numerous deaths and serious or catastrophic injuries have resulted when a vehicle’s seat collapses, especially during rear-end collisions. Unfortunately, the U.S. Department of Transportation’s National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) does not have stringent rules on automobile seat design and, as a result, an automobile’s seats can be extremely dangerous.
There are many types of defective seat designs in cars and other vehicles, including faulty seat backs, seat tracks, and recliner devices. Faulty seat designs are most harmful during rear-end collisions when a seat may collapse on the occupant of the vehicle. Or, a defective seat may also fail to remain in place, causing the occupant to have unnecessary impact with the interior of the car or be ejected from the vehicle. Automobile injuries may include broken bones, head and neck damage, or even death. As a result, seat designs in rear-end collisions cause serious, and sometimes fatal, injuries.
