Are These Unsafe Seatbelts in Your Car?

Attorney Warns of Gen-3 Seatbelt Safety Risk

Video Transcript:

Rob Rosenthal:

What are Gen 3 Seatbelts and why are they unsafe? We ask Philadelphia attorney Stewart Eisenberg in this AskTheLawyers™ Quick Question.

Stewart Eisenberg:

A safe seatbelt has a buckle and a release button that's totally flat. There's no raised portion, there is no ability to have that seatbelt come off during an accident. So this particular seatbelt, the Gen 3 seatbelt, has a raised button and it can be inadvertently hit during a crash; it can be inadvertently hit by an object in the car, or someone's hand, so that's a very dangerous kind of seat belt and you shouldn't have it in your vehicle. If you do, you need to go into the dealership and get them to fix it and put in a safer seatbelt.
