Boca Raton Airbag Injury Lawyer
Sometimes, devices meant to keep us safe cause more damage than the harm they’re meant to prevent. If an airbag has harmed you, contact a Boca Raton airbag injury attorney.
When a safety device fails to protect you, the result can be painful and traumatizing. When that device failed because of someone else’s negligence, it can be especially frustrating to feel that you’ve suffered because of someone else’s actions.
Airbags are life-saving devices in most cases, but sometimes, they’re not enough to protect you from injury or they may simply fail to work. When this happens, a Boca Raton airbag injury lawyer can help you investigate the cause and find the person or company responsible.
We understand how much you’ve suffered, and we want to help you maximize the value of your personal injury claim. No matter what, we’re determined to get you the compensation you need to move forward with your life.
Your Airbag Injuries and Damages
While your airbags might save your life, they’re not always completely safe. When the airbag fails to protect you or fails to deploy at all in an auto accident, you could end up with serious injuries, such as the following:
- Eye injuries from the deploying airbag
- Broken bones, especially facial bones
- Head trauma
These injuries and more can leave you suffering long after the crash is over. Airbags are there to minimize the amount your body moves during the crash to prevent internal bleeding and traumatic brain injuries during the accident. When the device fails to deploy, the results can be fatal.
If your airbag does deploy, however, the injuries the airbag causes may still warrant compensation. Airbags can be poorly manufactured and deploy with far too much force. Or, as has been the case recently, they may explode and send shrapnel throughout the vehicle. Your airbag injury lawyer in Boca Raton can investigate what caused your airbag to malfunction so you know who to name in your claim.
Liability for Your Injuries
Generally, serious airbag injuries stem from one of two causes: The airbag deployed with too much or too little force, or it failed to deploy at all.
In cases where the airbag didn’t deploy, you may have the right to sue the manufacturer for your injuries. A defective product can lead to severe consequences, and if a manufacturer allowed a malfunctioning product to be released, you can take legal action.
In some cases, however, the airbag might deploy properly during your accident, but you still end up badly injured. When this happens, you might need to pursue compensation for your airbag injuries from the driver who caused the crash.
After all, the at-fault driver’s negligence caused the accident, which in turn caused your airbag-related injuries. In addition to the costs associated with your airbag injuries, you’ll need to include all the costs and hardships the accident caused if you’re suing the at-fault driver. Your airbag injury attorney in Boca Raton can help you assess the full value of your claim.
