Seatback Failure

Consult a Fort Lauderdale Seatback Failure Attorney

A seatback failure occurs when the seatback or the back of a vehicle chair or seat collapses and falls backwards. Seatbacks are meant to stay rigid and upright. When a seatback failure occurs, the back of the vehicle chair or seat becomes loose and falls backwards or ends up in a horizontal, reclined position (rather than vertical).

Should you be injured due to a defective seatback anywhere in the State of Florida, contact Mr. Quackenbush at 786-294-7711 for a free, no obligation consultation. Should you hire Mr. Quackenbush on your case, he will not get paid until you’ve received compensation from your case – so there is no risk to you.

Fort Lauderdale Seatback Failure Lawyer Anthony Quackenbush Advises Clients on the Harms Caused by Defective Seatbacks

Seatback failures typically occur when a vehicle is rear-ended. This is true because the forward momentum of the rear-ended vehicle (as well as the consequent backwards forces on the seatback of the vehicle chair or seat) can cause the seatbelt to collapse or fall backwards.

Other types of accidents do not have near the propensity to cause seatback failures. For example, t-bone accidents do not cause seatback failures nearly as often as rear-end accidents because the forces on the vehicle seatbacks caused by t-bone accidents are typically to the side – rather than towards the back of the vehicle. Therefore, seatbacks in t-bone accidents do not fail as often as they do in rear-end car accidents.

All different types of injuries can be caused by a seatback failure. When defective seatbacks fail, vehicle occupants may become loose and move towards the back of the vehicle. This is true because seatbelts cannot hold vehicle occupants in place if the seatback has moved into a reclined position. In that situation, vehicle occupants typically simply slide out of the seatbelt and towards the back of the vehicle. As a result, in the case of a defective seatbelt, vehicle occupants may end up flying around the vehicle.

This can cause all sorts of injuries to the occupants of the vehicle. These include catastrophic injuries, traumatic brain injuries (TBI’s) and closed head injuries, brain damage, paralysis, paraplegia and quadriplegia, cerebral palsy, comas and vegetative states. They also include orthopedic injuries such as fractured and broken bones - including fractured ankles and ankle injuries, fractured knee caps, fractured hips (including hip replacement surgeries and operations), fractured pelvis (including pelvic repair surgeries and operations), fractured tail bones, fractured ribs, fractured clavicles and collarbones, fractured elbows (including elbow surgeries and operations), fractured wrists (including wrist surgeries and operations), finger injuries (including finger amputations), maxillofacial injuries including fractures to the nose, jaw and other bones in the face, fractured femurs and broken legs, fractured tibias and shins, and fractured fibulas

In a typical seatback failure case, the statute of limitations is generally four years. However, this may be different if the accident involved a death or in certain other circumstances. It is therefore crucial that you contact Mr. Quackenbush as soon as possible to begin your case.
