Seat Belt And Air Bag Failure
Have You Been Injured In A Seat Belt Or Air Bag Failure Accident?
People who drive vehicles place their trust in the safety features of seat belts and air bags to be operational when needed. During an impact, a seat belt is necessary for bodily restraint to avoid hitting the windshield or dashboard or from ejection. An air bag is designed to work with other restraints and protect from injury if deployed during an accident. During an accident, a seat belt or air bag may fail resulting in injury and death. If you or a loved one has been the victim of a seat belt/air bag failure, you should immediately contact a personal injury lawyer. Nguyen Lawyers has successfully represented many accident cases involving seat belt/air bag failure injuries.
About Air Bag And Seat Belt Failure Accidents
A design flaw or poor manufacturing of a seat belt or air bag can cause a failure to function properly during a vehicle accident. Each one has a specific purpose during a point of impact. Improper installation can be a factor leading to failures during a collision. If there is nothing to protect or restrain a driver or passenger during a traffic collision the injuries can be severe. Bodily injuries sustained may be as follows:
- Head and neck injuries or traumatic brain damage
- Spinal injuries resulting in paralysis
- Crushing injuries to internal organs
An experienced seat belt and air bag failure attorney can evaluate all details of the accident, including witness statements, police accident reports and photographs of the accident scene. There may be cause to file a suit against the seat belt and/or air bag manufacturer for a defective product. Depending on the circumstances of the accident and the severity of the injuries, you may be entitled to file a lawsuit for damages. A lawsuit enables recovery of medical costs incurred plus future medical costs, loss of wages and loss of future earning capacity, property damage, pain and suffering and loss of consortium. It is important that you speak to an attorney before you settle with an insurance company. Insurance companies usually want a quick settlement, while minimizing your injuries and suffering.
