Fort Myers Car Accident Attorney for Product Liability Lawsuits

Rear end accident

Even though airbags have been shown to save lives and are now legally required as vehicle components, every year many injuries are caused by defective airbags. In the same way, many children are injured every year as a result of defective child restraints.

Who is responsible for your injuries?

A manufacturer who produces a defective product such as an airbag or a child restraint can be held liable if this product causes the consumer to suffer injuries in a car accident. This means that you could receive monetary awards for injuries and suffering in a court of law or through settlement negotiations. Contact David and Kristin Pittman so that we can provide you with a friendly and in-depth consultation about your options. Drivers and passengers count on the vehicle's safety equipment for protection in the event of a collision, and you have a right to demand financial compensation if the manufacturer's negligence in designing or assembling the airbags or child car seat has caused your family to suffer.

Airbags or restraints can malfunction and cause injuries in a number of ways. Our firm has assisted countless clients in a wide variety of defective auto part claims including:

  • Airbags that deploy with too much force
  • Airbags that deploy at an incorrect angle
  • Airbags that launch at the wrong time

  • Child restraints that are improperly aligned

Looking for an attorney for a defective airbag case in Fort Myers?

It is the responsibility of the manufacturer to ensure that the air bag is installed and operated properly so that it can hopefully save a driver’s life in the event of an accident. When air bags have design flaws or aren’t properly tested, then the consequences could be catastrophic. On the same token, child restraint systems can cause injury if they fail to restrain the child during an accident. For example, if the latch is not able to withstand the forward force applied to it and comes undone, or if they are improperly aligned, it could cause the child to sustain serious injuries in a car accident. If you or a loved one has been injured as a result of a defective air bag or child restraint system, please do not hesitate to contact us here at Pittman Law Firm, P.L. for your free initial consultation.
