Seatbelt laws are in place in most states, and many times the failure to wear a seatbelt is cited as the cause or contributing factor towards injury in a vehicular accident. But this is not always the case. Many injuries would have occurred whether the seatbelt was in place or not, and it is important that you get expert help to prove this. Insurance companies and defense lawyers will attempt to show that your injuries were the result of not wearing your seatbelt, when in fact the injuries would have been as bad or even worse if you had been belted.
