You’ve probably heard this before: “Wait!  You can’t sue for your insured’s medical damages.  She wasn’t wearing a seat belt and that’s against the law!” All but one U.S. state have laws requiring occupants of motor vehicles to wear seat belts, and at least 15 of them recognize the seat belt defense.  In this episode, Rebecca sits down with Michael Markushewski, Chief Technical Officer at ARCCA, to talk about how you can use more than your insured’s statements to respond to this defense, what kinds of seat belts actually provide protection and in what types of collisions, and how this kind of research arose out of helicopter ejection seats and professional hockey players.
