Seatbelts are one of the most important inventions of the 20th century. Today, when we routinely drive in excess of speeds of 50 mph—when our own inertia is fatal past 30mph, seatbelts are one of the few things that can save our lives in a serious car accident. In fact, seatbelts make it more than 50% more likely a passenger will survive a major crash.
Auto manufacturers have an obligation to hold their cars to the highest safety standards possible. That means ensuring their seatbelts are safe and capable of saving a passenger’s life in a collision. The law firm of Clark, Fountain, La Vista, Littky-Rubin & Whitman fights to make sure manufacturers know the cost of their actions by holding them accountable on behalf of injured clients.
If you or a loved one were harmed in a car accident, our investigations can uncover the main cause of your injuries—and we can fight for justice and compensation if a seatbelt defect was the cause. Because we cover the cost of litigation and refuse to charge a fee unless our clients receive financial compensation, countless Florida residents have been able to receive top-quality representation—without worrying about the cost.
One of Our Most Important Cases—Laliberte vs. Mitsubishi
When it comes to seatbelt safety, Clark Fountain is well aware of the costs that poor manufacturing can incur. Our lawyers had the privilege of representing a family who tragically lost their 25-year-old son in a rollover car crash. In our investigation, we found that his vehicle had a seatbelt built with extra slack—a dangerous flaw that Mitsubishi quietly corrected mid-year, but never recalled for the sake of their consumers.

While a case like this might seem clear, what was unclear was whether the Florida court would be able to hold an internationally-known Japanese corporation accountable in Palm Beach County. Our firm is no stranger to obstacles, however, and we wouldn’t let distance or size get in the way of justice for the Laliberte family. Thanks to our work, we took Mitsubishi to task in front of a Florida jury and secured $11 million for the wrongful death of a young man on behalf of his family.
