    necessarily mean that your personal injury claim
    will be reduced or denied. However, the so-called
    seat belt defense may apply in limited
    circumstances. In other words, the value of your
    settlement may be reduced or your claim may be
    denied if the other partys attorney can prove
    the following elements
  • Any other person of ordinary prudence would have
    used the seat belt in similar circumstances
  • You did not exercise ordinary care by failure you
    use the seat belt
  • Your non-use of the seat belt at the time of the
    collision caused or aggravated your injury and
  • Your injury would have been less severe had you
    been buckled up at the time of the crash.
