Seatback failure can be deadly; Beasley Allen principal Graham Esdale weighs in

“Beasley Allen Report” host Gibson Vance welcomes fellow principal Graham Esdale to discuss an alarming trend in automobile accidents – seatback failures. A seat back failure can interfere with the restraint system, allowing vehicle occupants to impact rear seat objects in a rear-impact collision because they are not properly restrained. Not only can a front seat collapse injure the occupant seated, but may also injure rear seat occupants trapped beneath the collapsed seatback.
