Steps to Follow if You were Injured as a Result of a Defective Airbag
Nowadays, airbags are getting a lot of media attention due to the massive recall of these devices by Takata, one of the largest manufacturers in the world. With this in mind, there are several steps you can take should you be injured as a result of a defective airbag.*
These are as follows:
- Preserve evidence. Do not allow your car to be repaired until you have an attorney inspect the vehicle to help establish that the defective airbag caused your injuries. Make sure to advise your mechanic to not work on the steering column until your attorney gives you the green light.
- Gather evidence on the accident. Take photos and a video of your vehicle as well as the scene of the accident. Also be sure to include in your photos and video the deployed airbag. The information you gather is often vital to your case.
- Record your injuries. Record all of your injuries in the crash, as it helps to distinguish between the damage caused by the accident and the damages resulting from the defective airbag, a process of which can be challenging and complex. When you have proof of a defective airbag that led to your injuries, your attorney is in the best position to establish causation in your case.
- Contact a experienced defective airbag lawyer. Only an attorney can put you in the best position to prove your case as well as fight for the maximum amount of compensation allowable by law. Contact an attorney immediately to protect your legal rights and interests following your accident.
