Case in Point

Defective reclining seat renders seat belt ineffective, allows passenger ejection

The deceased passenger’s parents sued the SUV’s manufacturer, alleging that the front passenger seat was defective in that it could be reclined 80 degrees. The plaintiffs contended that reclining a seat more than 45 degrees renders the seat restraint ineffective because it changes the geometry of the lap belt and essentially removes the seat back as a restraint. Goodner v. Hyundai Motor Co.
