Nationwide Defective Headrest Injury Attorneys

Some models of Chrysler, Dodge, and Jeep vehicles are equipped with Active Head Restraint (AHR) systems, a safety feature in the seats’ headrests that, in reaction to a rear-end collision, will split the headrest in two. This feature is designed to reduce the risk of injuries resulting from whiplash during an accident.

If you have been injured by an Active Head Restraint system, contact Kershaw, Cook & Talley. Call (916) 520-6639 or use our message form to schedule a free initial consultation with our nationwide defective headrest attorneys.

Although an AHR may be an effective injury-preventing system in the event of a crash, the headrests have been reported to malfunction and initiate the safety feature when the car is not in motion, or during driving time when an accident has not occurred. The action of the headrest splitting open and/or springing forward, unprompted by a rear-end collision, can cause concussions and other injuries. The shock of a headrest suddenly opening up and forcing toward the floor and steering wheel could potentially even lead to accidents for startled drivers.

The unintentional headrest activation is caused by issues with a plastic bracket inside the system. If this small piece snaps due to movement or general wear and tear, it can cause the Active Head Restraint to deploy. Headrest deployment needs to be reset by a Chrysler/Jeep/Dodge dealer, as specified in the vehicles’ manuals, but may require an expensive replacement in some cases.
