Orange County Seat Belt Injury Lawyer
Sometimes, the device that’s meant to keep you safe during a car accident can be the cause of your injuries. For many victims, that’s the case with seat belts.
When you’re injured by your seat belt, you are no doubt left with a sense of injustice—on top of the physical pain and financial costs of your injuries. You shouldn’t have to pay for your medical bills and other damages when your injuries weren’t your fault.
If you file a personal injury claim, you may not have to. To increase your chance of receiving compensation for your injuries, team up with an Orange County seat belt injury lawyer with Dickson Kohan & Bablove, LLP.
We’re ready to evaluate your case, gather evidence, and fight for the compensation you deserve.
How Your Seat Belt Can Injure you
Although they save countless lives, seat belts can also cause injuries in vehicle accidents.
During accidents, passengers too often find their seat belts malfunctioning. When a faulty seat belt has injured you, you may be able to file a product liability lawsuit.
However, naming a major manufacturer or other company in your claim for compensation means you’re likely to face company lawyers who are trained to refute claims like yours. You won’t want to go up against opponents like these without an Orange County defective seat belt attorney backing you up.
Product liability cases involving seat belts can get technical quickly. Your attorney will work with experts to build you a strong claim that will maximize the compensation you stand to receive.
Your Seat Belt Injury Compensation
The damages you may suffer when you’re injured by a seat belt don’t stop at medical bills. You may face any of several additional financial damages after your Orange County accident, such as the following:
- Damage to your vehicle
- Wages lost because you’re unable to work while you’re recovering
- Lost future income because you are no longer able to work
- Physical or mental therapy
On top of your economic damages, you’re likely to suffer some intangible non-economic damages after your seat belt injury. These may include the following:
- Pain and suffering
- Scarring or disfigurement
- Damage to personal relationships because of your injuries
- Anxiety related to your accident
- Reduced quality of life overall

When you clicked your seat belt into place before you started your car, you were doing what you thought was best for your safety. Then, the seat belt itself caused your injuries.
