Car Airbag Injury Attorney Miami, Broward, Palm Beach
When the Intermodal Surface Transportation Efficiency Act went into effect in 1998, it required every light truck and car sold in the United States to include airbags for both front seats. The purpose of the legislation was to reduce the number of casualties resulting from motor vehicle accidents.
Unfortunately, car airbags don’t keep a person 100% safe. When a car airbag deploys, it can cause severe physical injuries and trauma to the driver and front passenger. For example, if an airbag deploys during a minor crash or deploys too late after a collision, it can leave you with severe injuries. If the crash sensor doesn’t time the airbag deployment correctly, it can lead to these kinds of incidents.
Car manufacturers are obligated to ensure their airbags deploy correctly for the safety of the passengers. If your airbags deployed incorrectly or failed to deploy at all, you have the right to seek compensation from the vehicle manufacturer if you were injured.

When Do You Need to Hire a Car Airbag Injury Attorney?
You need to hire a car airbag injury attorney whenever you have been injured from a car airbag deploying or failing to deploy at the right time. Several parts of your body can get injured from a car airbag, especially if you sit close to the dashboard. Some of the most common injuries include:
- Internal bleeding
- Eye damage
- Facial fractures
- Internal organ damage
- Brain injury
These injuries can leave permanent damage to your mind and body. If you or a loved one has experienced any of these injuries, you should at least contact a car airbag injury attorney for a free consultation. They can let you know whether you have a case or not and how much compensation you can expect to receive.
Car airbag injury claims can entitle victims to compensatory damages and punitive damages from the vehicle manufacturer and any other liable parties. Compensatory damages compensate you for the actual expenses you’ve incurred because of the airbag injuries. These expenses would include lost income, medical bills, emotional stress, inability to enjoy life, future earnings loss, and rehabilitation costs.
Punitive damages may also be sought if the vehicle manufacturer is found to have been significantly negligent in the case. Seeking punitive damages is meant to punish the manufacturer for gross negligence when designing or installing the car airbags. Not all car airbag injury claims result in punitive damages, though. It depends on the circumstances involved.

How do car airbag injury claims work?
If you have been injured from a car airbag after a vehicular collision or airbag system malfunction, you should gather as much evidence as possible. That means you need to retain possession of your car, even if it has been totaled. Otherwise, your insurance company could erase the data in the computer if they take possession of your vehicle.
The next step is to hire a car airbag injury attorney to investigate the incident and review the evidence. The attorney will inform you of your legal rights and the estimated compensation you deserve. If you wish to proceed with a personal injury claim against the liable parties, you can hire an attorney to proceed with your case.
The attorney will negotiate with the liable parties to seek a fair settlement amount for the total damages you incurred. If they refuse to settle, we will take the matter to civil court to seek compensation for you there.
