When driving, we tend to take our seats for granted. We get in the car, adjust the seat, and never think about it again. However, an alarming number of car crashes result in seat back failure, especially if the seat has the capacity to recline. What happens when seat back failure occurs is the seat collapses, or literally breaks off from where it is attached. This can result in the occupant of the seat being thrown backward, or thrown into the back seat, injuring the back seat passengers. Victims of seat back failure in Florida can even be ejected from the car.
Seat back failure generally occurs as a result of a rear end collision, when the velocity of the impact throws the vehicle forward and the occupants backward. This is when the seatback tends to fail, or break off, causing the inhabitant of the seat to be tossed in any number of directions…even out of the vehicle. Seat back failure can result in serious injury, especially spinal related injuries, which can lead to paralysis.
