Alabama Defective Seat Back Attorneys
Car seats are designed to remain intact during an automobile accident in order to protect the passengers. When a seat back fails, it can lead to severe injuries including paralysis or spinal cord injuries. If a seat back fails and leads to your injury, you may have a product liability claim for your injury.

What are seat backs?
A seat back is the upright portion of an automobile seat. It should be able to keep the vehicle's passengers safe by reducing the momentum an individual experiences during a collision, preventing the occupant from impacting the interior or, even worse, being completely ejected from the vehicle.
What are the dangers associated with defective seat backs?
Lack of strength is the biggest danger posed by some seat back designs. A seat back failure can interfere with the restraint system, allowing vehicle occupants to impact rear seat objects in rear-impact collisions, because they are not properly restrained. In some instances, passengers can be completely ejected from the vehicle when they are able to slide out from under the safety restraints due to the seat back failure.
Also, a front row seat back collapse can injure the rear seat passengers during rear-impact collisions, because the rear seat occupants can become trapped underneath the collapsed seat back. Despite repeated requests from consumer groups and independent safety engineers, automobile manufacturers have done little to increase seat back strength over the past several decades.
What can I do if I have been injured by an defective seat back?
If you or a loved one has suffered a serious injury as the result of a seat back malfunction or failure, you may be entitled to monetary compensation.
