Seatbelts are designed to work with airbags for front occupants. Many airbag injuries and fatalities occur because people are not wearing seatbelts. It is imperative that you inform your medical provider of the use of a seatbelt when you are treated. Seatbelts could cause many internal injuries and may need to be medically addressed.

Recent laws in Texas, have permitted insurance companies to introduce evidence at trial that a seatbelt was or was not used during a car accident.

Whether you were wearing a seatbelt or not during an accident, that should not deter you from seeking legal help. The lawyers at Funk & Associates are here to advise you of your rights and help you with your car accident.
