During a car accident, drivers and occupants rely upon the seats in their vehicle to remain intact. Studies have proven there are many seats that do not remain intact after impact. In most of these cases, the seat back (the portion that your back rests against) fails and moves forward or backwards, depending upon whether it was a frontal or rear collision.
When seat backs collapse in a car accident, the occupant is often ejected from the vehicle, even if they are utilizing a seat belt. In these cases, the injuries to the vehicle occupant are extreme.
Most often, people sustain back and neck injuries, which can often lead to herniated discs and even paralysis.
