When you have been injured, you want an attorney with experience fighting for you

Airbag injuries are caused by a number of design and manufacturing defects. Common occurrences include airbags that deploy when they should not, airbags that fail to inflate, or airbags that inflate too quickly or too slowly. All of these airbag problems lead to more severe injuries than would have happened had the airbag worked properly.

Seatbelt defects allow the driver or passenger of a car to hit the dashboard or windshield. Another type of belt failure results in the occupant of the car being thrown from the vehicle during an accident. Problems with design or manufacture include weak or inappropriate webbing material, a belt that appears latched when it is not, and retractor devices that allow the occupant to move forward during an accident.

Both of these equipment problems can lead to serious injuries and death. Our attorney has successfully obtained compensation for many people injured because of airbag malfunction and seatbelt failure. Some of our cases have led to jury trials in which substantial verdicts have been awarded.
