Were you hurt by your own airbag? If so, speak with a Spokane airbag injury attorney.

Airbags are designed to keep you safe. They are meant to deploy during a car accident and prevent you from crashing forward into the dash or windshield. In most cases, they work incredibly well and help prevent serious injuries.

However, as is the case with any vehicle part, airbags can be flawed. In this case, airbags can actually make accidents worse when they don’t work correctly. If this has happened to you, the manufacturer may be responsible for your injuries.

If a manufacturer made a faulty airbag or airbag components, it could be found negligent and therefore responsible for the injuries you suffered during your crash. That means you might be able to name the airbag manufacturer in a personal injury claim for compensation.

To give your claim the best chance of success, team up with a Spokane airbag injury lawyer at Craig Swapp & Associates.

What Happened in Your Accident?

We see many types of injuries caused by faulty airbags. These include broken bones, facial damage, burns, and brain trauma.

Some of the more common types of airbag accidents include the following:

  • Deploying too early or without proper cause
  • Failing to deploy
  • Catching on fire

If the cause of your Spokane airbag injury is not listed here, don’t worry. You can still pursue compensation if the airbag malfunctioned and injured you as a result.

Why You Need a Lawyer

Your Spokane airbag malfunction lawyer will help you prove that the airbag manufacturer was negligent and responsible for your injuries. Proving this can be very difficult on your own. To build your case, your attorney will do things like the following:

  • Conduct depositions to ask questions under oath
  • Request document production
  • Hire expert witnesses

Your attorney will do whatever is necessary to gather the evidence required to prove your case.

You Can Sue on Behalf of Your Child

Faulty airbags can injure both drivers and passengers, and that, unfortunately, includes children sitting in the front seat.

You can file a lawsuit either on behalf of yourself or your minor children who were injured in an accident due to a faulty airbag. Minors cannot hire a Spokane airbag accident lawyer on their own, so even if your teenager was the one injured, you will need to attend the appointment with him or her.
