What type of people are less likely to wear a seat belt?

Most people have come to find that wearing a seat belt is important to remaining safe in the event of an accident. This is no guarantee that you won't suffer an injury, but a seat belt is meant to keep you safe.

Unfortunately, many people hit the road before they fasten their seat belt. As a result, they're putting themselves in a dangerous position in the event of an accident.

Some groups of people are less likely than others to wear a seat belt, including the following:

  • Young adults in the 18 to 24 age group
  • Men (as opposed to women)
  • Adults who reside in a nonmetropolitan area
  • States in which there are no seat belt laws in place or they are not strictly enforced

The nice thing about wearing a seat belt is that it's simple to do. It only takes a second to strap yourself in. Even better, once you get into the habit of wearing a seat belt, it will become second nature.

When you wear a seat belt, there is less chance of moving around the cabin during an accident. Instead, you'll stay where you are, thus giving yourself the best chance of avoiding injury.

Even with a seat belt, you could still suffer some type of injury, such as whiplash, broken bones or a concussion. With this in mind, you should never wait to receive medical attention.

Once you understand your injuries, you can then learn more about your legal rights, who was at fault and the steps you can take to seek compensation from the negligent party.
