Can damages be recovered if the driver was not wearing a seat belt?

Posted under Uncategorized

Wearing a seat belt is an important precaution for all drivers and passengers. As studies have shown, when people wear seat belts, their risk of serious injuries in accident is significantly reduced. 

If a person is not wearing a seat belt and is injured in an accident, that person can still likely sue for damages. Some states, however, have laws that greatly reduce the amount of damages for people not wearing seat belts. 

If you have been injured in an accident and were not wearing a seat belt, contact the Kenosha car accident attorneys of Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. ®, at 800-242-2874.
