Airbag Accident Lawyer San Antonio, TX
If you’ve been injured as a result of a malfunctioning airbag, it’s important to explore your options with the assistance of an experienced airbag accident lawyer San Antonio, TX residents trust. When accidents happen, the law generally doesn’t distinguish between an accident victim’s right to hold a person accountable for negligent, reckless, or intentionally dangerous behavior and a victim’s right to hold another legal entity (such as an airbag manufacturer, an auto manufacturer, a car rental agency, etc.) accountable for similarly unlawful behavior. As a result, if you’ve been injured as a result of a malfunctioning airbag, you likely have opportunities for legal recourse.
When you connect with the experienced Texas legal team at The Law Office of John W. Shaw, PLLC, our San Antonio, TX airbag accident lawyer team can evaluate the details of your situation and provide you with a personalized assessment of whether you likely have strong grounds to file legal action or not. Sometimes, auto accident cases require a little investigating before we can provide our clients with an objective assessment of their options. However, malfunctioning airbag cases can be somewhat straightforward, especially if there is a known issue with a particular brand and/or manufacturer of certain airbags.
Can I Sue if My Airbag Malfunctioned?
A defective products case tends to progress in much the same ways that any personal injury case would. First, we’ll need to gather evidence related to your accident and your injuries. Therefore, if you have a copy of the accident report (if one was filed), discharge papers from any emergency department care you received in the wake of the accident, photos from the accident scene, etc. please bring these documents along to your consultation. The more information we have access to, the more accurate our initial evaluation of your case’s relative strengths, weaknesses, and potential compensation value will be.
If we determine that you have strong grounds to file a case and you choose to move forward accordingly, we’ll identify the defendants in the case and begin preparing to file. Chances are high that the airbag manufacturer will be a defendant in your case, but the entity that sold you the car or rented you the car may be an appropriate defendant as well.
It’s worth noting that the vast majority of personal injury cases (some estimates approximate nine out of every 10) are settled before there is any need to progress to a trial phase. With that said, we prepare every case as if it may need to go to trial, so that your case is as strong as it can possibly be at every step along the way.
