There are actually a few good legal reasons and arguments to defend you in the case of a car accident where you weren’t wearing your seatbelt. One of these legal reasons is if you’re in someone else’s car and don’t have access to a working seatbelt and you’re injured in a car accident.
That said, these situations where failure to wear a seatbelt can be excused under the law are pretty rare. But it’s true that if this does happen to you, a jury is likely to be much more forgiving if you didn’t have access to a good working seatbelt, then if you just decided not to wear a seatbelt.
