A: Your question remains open for a week, and it may be because this is something for a technical expert instead of an attorney. But even a technical expert can't offer a quick, direct response. They would want to know about the severity of the fire, damage to vehicle in terms of doors being jammed, the age, strength, injuries, or abilities of the trapped victim, type of seatbelt, etc. Short answer is that "yes," no seat belt would enable a quicker exit - but anyone on the street with no particular expertise could offer that kind of simple analysis. Good luck
