However, seat belt defects or malfunctions can worsen accident injuries or cause seat belts to fail to do their job of preventing injuries from happening altogether.Due to their importance, many expect that the manufacturing and design processes for seat belts are always handled with great accuracy and precision. Unfortunately, this is not always the case and mistakes are made that put users at risk for injury. The consequences for being involved in an accident while wearing a defective or malfunctioning seatbelt can be devastating. Many individuals have experienced worse injuries than they would have if they were not wearing a seat belt during an accident. However, the relatively low incidence of seat belt malfunction related injuries should not cause individuals to choose to not follow safety regulations and not wear seat belts while operating or riding in a motor vehicle.
