In cases involving accident victims who weren’t wearing seat belts, it is important to carefully examine the circumstances of the accident and the type of injury or injuries that the victim suffered. Usually, the standard defense in these cases is that the injuries would not have occurred if the victim had been wearing a seat belt.
Our lawyers counter these arguments with the testimony of nationally recognized experts in auto injuries. Depending on the circumstances of your accident, they may be able to testify that had you been wearing a seat belt:
- The injuries still would have occurred, or
- The injuries would not have been as severe as they were, though you still would have suffered injuries.
In either case, you would still be eligible for compensation. Our goal when representing you will be to obtain maximum compensation for you.
