What are the dangers associated with a defective Chrysler Minivan?

We are currently representing clients who were involved in a crash with a 2001 Chrysler Voyager minivan. A young boy was killed, and his mother was rendered a paraplegic when they were ejected from the van during a rollover collision. During the rollover, the seat belt of the occupant inadvertently released, and the sliding door of the van popped open and fell off allowing the occupants to be ejected.

The failure of the seat belts and the sliding door to retain these occupants in the van led to their tragic death and injuries. Claims have been brought against Chrysler for the defective design of the doors and the seat belt system. The buckles inadvertently released in the crash due to a release button that protrudes too high and fails a simple safety test that all manufacturer’s seat belts pass. The defect in the release button is that it protrudes up sufficiently that it can be hit by an elbow, a child seat, or other object in a crash and release. Consumer groups around the country have asked that these buckles be recalled due to this design.
