The Same Old Airbag Issues Could Leave You In Need Of An Attorney This Year

Airbags are safety devices that inflate upon impact to prevent a person's head from hitting the steering wheel or dash. Nobody ever really thinks about the equipment until it is needed, but when a failure occurs the consequences can be drastic. Substantial amounts of vehicles have been recalled over the past decade or so due to the canisters exploding and causing injuries. The fragmented pieces leave behind punctures, lacerations, and sometimes they even result in loss of life. Seatbelts, anti-lock brakes, and countless other items are supposed to keep vehicle operators and passengers safe. However, when a malfunction or defect is present, these devices tend to cause more harm than good.

Pay Particular Attention To This Recall Notice If You Are A Volkswagen Owner

Volkswagen Group of America began issuing recalls in February on a potential 97,440 affected units. This number is massive, so the probability of one or more of them being located in Florida is high. The excessive internal pressure in the driver's frontal airbag may cause the inflator to explode upon impact. This action increases an occupants risk of sustaining injury or death. Recalled models include...

• 2009-2012 Audi Q5
• 2010-2012 Audi A5 Cabriolet
• 2010-2012 S5 Cabriolet

The company is contacting owners directly, but concerned individuals can call the Volkswagen customer service department at 1-800-253-2834. Mention the numbers 69R6 and 16V-078 to get the most relevant and up-to-date info. Dealers are expected to replace the faulty piece with an alternative inflator free of charge. Don't leave anything to chance, and if you suspect a problem have it checked out.

Myers, and other surrounding locations that become injured in an accident should not hesitate to contact our firm for a free case review.

Settlement amounts are dependent upon various factors like the severity of the injury, how it affects one's daily life, medical expenses, missed work, along with pain and suffering.

Let our attorney take on these daunting tasks, as well as, get witness testimonies, purchase vital equipment when applicable, and help you obtain the deserved monetary sum.

Don't face the complicated Florida legal system alone, and instead, put a proven winner in your corner to achieve the results that you seek. It can seem nearly impossible to pay everyday expenses when you are injured. Medical bills and physical therapy costs also become factors that throw a wrench into a budget quickly. Time away from work means that no money is coming in unless a person is one of the lucky ones that was able to afford to take precautions for those just in case moments. However, most folks are working extended hours at one or more jobs to only pay for necessities. The firms representing these companies will attempt to prolong the proceedings to get the plaintiff to agree to a smaller settlement amount than is warranted. Being left with these damages is terrible enough, but getting stuck with the bills that follow is like receiving a slap in the face.
