Orange County Airbag Injury Lawyer
When you’re in a serious car accident, your airbag can save your life. But when these safety devices malfunction, they can cause injuries as serious as any car accident.
Unfortunately, this is relatively common. From major corporations recalling countless defective—and deadly—airbags to simple airbag malfunctions, airbags are routinely injuring drivers in Orange County and almost everywhere else.
But here’s the good news: If you’ve suffered an airbag injury in a car wreck, a qualified injury lawyer can help you obtain the compensation you need to recover.
Product liability cases related to airbags have already won victims millions of dollars in compensation, and an Orange County airbag injury lawyer with Dickson Kohan & Bablove, LLP can win you the compensation you deserve, too.
You may already be aware of the massive Takata airbag deflator recall that occurred in recent years. Several deaths and many more injuries were tied to the devices deploying with far too much force and sending shrapnel throughout the car.
Many victims and their families filed successful airbag injury claims against Takata and various vehicle manufacturers. Although the Takata fiasco is a major example of how airbags can injure motorists, it’s not the only example.
Airbags can injure you in a number of ways. The following are a few examples:
- The airbag deploys with too much force, causing face, neck, or spine injuries.
- The airbag fails to deploy during a crash, sending your head smashing into the dashboard or steering wheel.
- The airbag deploys at random, injuring you and potentially causing a crash.
Your Orange County airbag injury attorney will examine the details of your accident and injuries to determine the cause, which will help you decide who to name in your claim for compensation.
Compensation for Airbag Injuries
In many cases, you’ll be able to name the airbag or vehicle manufacturer in your claim when you’ve been injured by a faulty airbag.
However, the circumstances surrounding airbag injuries can vary widely and implicate several other parties. For example, if a driver sped through a red light and crashed into you, causing your airbag to deploy, you could name both the driver and the airbag manufacturer in your claim if the airbag also caused some of your injuries.
After you and your Orange County defective airbag attorney have fully evaluated all the evidence and identified all the effects your injuries will have on your life, you may be able to seek compensation for any or all of the following damages:
- Medical expenses, including estimated future costs
- Lost wages during your recovery time
- Future lost wages if you’re unable to go back to work because of your injuries
- Damage to your vehicle or items inside of it
- Pain and suffering
- Scarring or disfigurement
- Reduced quality of life
- Wrongful death
