Can I Still Recover Damages If I Was Not Wearing a Seatbelt at the Time of the Accident?

Drivers and passengers are required by law to wear seatbelts at all times, but some individuals may not wear them for every single ride. If you were not wearing your seatbelt at the time of your accident, you can still seek recovery. Not wearing a seatbelt does not cause an accident, though it could make your injuries worse.
