Airbag Defects can Cause Serious Injuries

Millions of people are injured in car accidents each year, most of which are due to driver error. As a result, the vast majority of the compensation people recover after an auto accident comes from other drivers or their insurance policies. Sometimes, however, car accidents are caused by defective car equipment, or the equipment makes car accident injuries worse than they would have been had the equipment been free from defects.  In these situations, people who are injured can recover from the manufacturer of the equipment or the vehicle for their losses as well as others than may have been at fault. To determine whether you have a claim, you should discuss your situation with an experienced lawyer at Shane Smith Law as soon as possible.
