Ohio Attorneys Handling Airbag Injury Cases Nationwide
Airbags are intended to help protect occupants of a car or truck in an accident. Airbag injuries occur when the airbag is defective or does not work properly. In these cases, the airbag can become extremely hazardous and cause injury or even death.
Airbag Injury as a Result of Deployment Malfunctions
An airbag that deploys with excessive speed and force may cause fractures to the face of the person who is being "protected." Forceful deployment has even been known to cause airbag injuries as severe as blindness in some victims.
Conversely, when an airbag does not deploy properly, a driver's face may smash into the steering wheel or windshield, or a passenger may collide with the dashboard or the windshield.
The airbag injury attorneys of Lowe Eklund Wakefield & Mulvihill Co., LPA, have represented a number of people injured by faulty deployment of an airbag or failure of an airbag to deploy properly. Contact our Ohio law firm to schedule a free initial consultation.
Confidential Settlement: We obtained a confidential settlement for our clients in a wrongful death case of an adult driver when his airbag suddenly deployed while driving, but without any impact, causing him to lose control of the vehicle, leave the roadway and strike a grove of trees.
Confidential Settlement: We obtained a confidential settlement for a woman when she suffered severe facial fractures and the loss of one eye when her defectively designed air bag struck her in a minor collision.
Confidential Settlement: We obtained a confidential settlement for the family of a child who was struck and killed by an airbag which smashed into her head in a slow speed fender-bender.
Airbag Injury and Auto Defects: Negligence, Bad Design
When a serious injury results from defective or poorly designed airbags, it is important to question whether any negligence was involved on the part of the auto manufacturer. Technology exists involving strategically placed sensors that can protect rather than harm.
When a client of Lowe Eklund Wakefield & Mulvihill Co., LPA, has suffered a catastrophic injury related to airbag malfunction or poor design, our airbag injury attorneys demand an explanation -- and fair compensation for the victim.
Were you seriously injured in a car accident as a result of airbag malfunction or defective design? We are ready to investigate the accident to determine the cause, and make a case for maximum available compensation to cover your medical bills, lost wages and pain and suffering after an airbag injury.
Call or e-mail the personal injury attorneys of Lowe Eklund Wakefield & Mulvihill Co., LPA, to schedule a no-obligation consultation after an airbag injury.
