Ford Focus Seat Back Failure Lawsuit Injury Lawyer

A rear-end collision can always be dangerous, throwing the passengers in the car forward, then backward. When this movement occurs, the seats in the front of the vehicle should stay upright to support the driver and front passenger during the accident. In some Ford Focus vehicles, the seat backs have failed. They throw the driver and passenger backward, causing serious injuries for them and other passengers in the vehicle.

Weak seat backs are a common issue, not just in the Ford Focus. A low safety standard industry-wide since 1967 has allowed many manufacturers to create poorly designed seat backs. These seats tend to collapse when involved in a rear-end crash and have caused hundreds of deaths and thousands of serious injuries. Spinal injuries are the most common, from whiplash to more serious issues with the spine. Victims of these crashes and seat back failures have sought compensation for their injuries through personal injury lawsuits against manufacturers.

Dangers of Weak Seat Backs

Not only can the motion of flying backward during a rear-end crash cause serious injuries, it can also increase the risk of a front collision. When the driver is thrown backward, they can lose their ability to control their Ford Focus. The vehicle is more likely to collide with other vehicles or stationary objects, increasing the risk of injury. Drivers and passengers are put in danger by these poorly designed seats, with a high chance of serious injuries or fatalities.
