I am wondering if there is something that can be done. I have researched the internet an it seems that I was able to find similar cases but nothing close enough.
Just to put in short for the moment I was in a accident due to road conditions. (Black Ice) I had rolled my car a few times in the air with my seat belt engaged. Then all of a sudden I woke up outside the car 25ft from where it stopped I was thrown out the passenger window. My seat belt was on an I have cuts and bruises from the seat belt. It had broke while in the roll of the car.
God was on my side the car, an the area I shouldn't of been as lucky as I am !
I hope someone could help me out I feel that if a safety device fails why is it a safety device in the first place an it could of been someone else or myself an died
I forgot to add the car was not rolled over on top it missed the top, the seat belt was caused to fail by the force of the turn. It should still hold its own, If it wasn't for the fact I had been thrown into the open road I would of been killed by something else. to what they said I would of had less injury as the inside of the driver area was fine, the door was hit but was not in my way from sitting still, the belt snapped causing me to be thrown out. So accident didnt cause the belt the belt should of held alot longer then the accident, (witness said less then 30 sec)
Ok, I am sorry about blabber I had put up! I appreciate all the great answers. I have contacted a Lawyer and its actually a case under the "Product Liability Act of OHIO" I have a case because the fact of the nature is, Careless if I HAD NO CONTROL the seat belt should of stayed in tact through the whole accident.
Again thanks everyone! This happen DEC 15th 2009 at 9pm So I am still a bit out of it,
