Dodge Minivan Seat Back Failure Lawsuit Injury Lawyer

Many vehicles have problems with weak seat backs, especially minivans. The Dodge minivan is no exception, creating a dangerous situation when these vehicles are involved in a rear-end collision. If the front seat backs fail, the passenger in the front seat and the driver can be flung backward, causing serious injuries to them and other passengers.

Seat back problems have been occurring for decades, yet most of the seats meet the minimum safety requirements. The standard for seat back performance has been set so low that it does little to protect drivers and passengers from injury. When a Dodge minivan seat back failure occurs, the driver can be thrown backward, limiting their control of the vehicle. The motion can cause serious injury to the spine and increase the chance of a more dangerous crash if the driver is unable to control the vehicle.

Poor Safety Standards for Seat Backs

The safety standards for seat backs were created in 1967, yet these only set a minimum level for safety. Due to these low standards, vehicle manufacturers like Dodge are not required to create seat backs that can withstand the impact of a rear end crash. There have been pushes by consumers, attorneys and even politicians to improve the safety of seat backs, imploring the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration to impose better regulations to protect those who buy and use these vehicles. Unfortunately, even if standards are improved, there are already millions of vehicles with weak seat backs on the road that pose a danger if they are involved in an accident.
