The easy entries aren't that flimsy but if you're unsure of your horse, don't use the seat provided. Instead use a plank or plywood. It's safer if you think you might have to bail out the back. The backrest on the seat prevents this. I did this as a precaution and sure enough my horse began to bold. I did bail out the back. Altho I got a few bruises I can only guess at what might have happened had I not. My mistake was using a blind bridle. He needed to know what was going on behind him. He was not a spooky horse until the blind bridle went on. I pay close enough attention.

You should never try and bail out of the cart, you need to stay with your horse and try and get contol and not let iot run away and wreak havok. It sounds like your mistake was lack of training.

I would never bail out of a cart oR wagon unless we were in an empty arena where if the horse started running scared you could catch it or if it is bad enough like no way in heck are you getting that horse calm with a cart or wagon attached cut traces and if needed shaft loops.
