Airbags are supplemental safety devices that are installed in cars, trucks and SUVs to increase passenger safety in the event of an accident. They compliment primary restraint devices such as seatbelts and are intended to prevent your head and upper body from striking the windshield or interior during a crash. Airbags are often installed in the front and side of vehicles.
Airbag systems are usually designed to deploy in moderate to severe front impacts of more than 20 to 25 mph, or in some cases, side impacts. However, airbag system defects can cause them to deploy with too much force, to deploy too slowly, or to fail altogether. Airbag failures are often caused by a failed airbag control module, which only an expert can detect by examining your vehicle’s fault codes.
These types of airbag failures can lead to serious injuries or even death. Those injured or killed by these defects don’t receive the safety benefits they expected when purchasing a vehicle or when they relied on the safety claims of the manufacturer.
Dealing with the pain, loss of function, medical bills and lost wages associated with a car accident can be traumatic. If that accident was further worsened by the failure of an important safety device, it can be even more frustrating. During this difficult time you must make important decisions that will affect your future health and well being, as well as your ability to take care of your family.
Before you trust a Toyota Airbag Failure Lawsuit to just anyone, make sure they are qualified to handle the circumstances of your case, have the resources to fight large corporations, and can commit the time necessary to your case. Thousands of lawsuits are filed every day for defective products. Many of these will not be pursued to their fullest potential or clients will be left with less than they could have recovered because their attorneys did not have the expertise or dedication to maximize the results.
Ask if an attorney or case manager will handle your lawsuit from start to finish. Ask any potential attorney if he or she has been rated by their peers in their particular area of practice. If other people in the legal community won’t recommend their services, they shouldn’t be handling your case.
