Can Your Insurance Claim Be Denied from Lack of Seatbelt?

NHTSA found that nearly 50% of people who died in traffic-related accidents did not use seat belts. This is the type of statistics that will work against you when you try to file an insurance claim and you were not using a seat belt in the car accident. Generally, this doesn’t mean that you won’t receive any payout from your insurance. But, you will get less than you should have.
