In many Suv Rollover cases the seat belts can come open during a rollover. A seatbelt buckle during a rollover can unlatch or unbuckle due to false latching or inertial unlatching. If you believe that you or your child were belted before the rollover occurred and were later ejected or partially ejected, then the seatbelt buckle may have opened and defective.
