Design flaws and poor installation have resulted in latches failing during accidents
While any vehicle accident can be dangerous, even the smallest wreck greatly increases in risk if the vehicle door latches fail to operate properly and keep the doors closed. When an accident occurs and door latches fail, occupants are often thrown from the vehicle, sustaining injuries far worse than those which would have happened had the victim remained in the vehicle.
Victims who are flung from a vehicle during a wreck face certain injuries from hitting the road and other surfaces, and even greater risk – including the possibility of death – if they are struck by other vehicles.
The simple fact is that manufacturers must take every step possible to ensure that vehicle doors remain latched during a wreck. Cases throughout the nation have shown that design flaws or poor installation techniques have resulted in vehicle latches failing during accidents.
