In brief: Yes

Even though injuries such as fractures can occur the life saving aspects of the seatbelts still out weigh the risks of not using them even with osteoporosis.

Look at it this way.
Is a possible contusion from the seat belt restraining you in a crash better or worse than dying or breaking multiple bones (especially since you have osteoporosis). Everything has a risk but which is manageable and less severe?
