Will Not Wearing A Seat Belt Affect My Car Accident Case?

Not wearing a seat belt can affect the amount of damages you can recover in a car accident case. If you have injuries that would’ve been prevented by wearing a seat belt, then an insurance company or the adverse party is not responsible for those injuries. You would be responsible for those yourself, and you cannot recover for those, so it definitely affects the value of your car accident case.
