Airbags generally protect the occupants of a car in a crash. When an airbag is defective, it can cause more severe injuries. These injuries are preventable, and the victims have a right to recover compensation and ensure the at-fault parties are accountable for their negligence.
A product liability lawyer in Boca Raton from Ged Lawyers knows how to build a case and hold the car company, airbag manufacturer, or another liable party responsible. Our Boca Raton attorneys will help you get justice while you focus on healing. Contact us today to learn more during a free case consultation with our airbag injury team.
How Our Boca Raton Airbag Injury Attorneys Seek Compensation for Our Clients
When an airbag injury victim is hurt, they incur many types of expenses and losses. This begins at the incident scene, where they may require emergency transportation to the hospital, need to pay to have their vehicle towed and cover storage fees for the car. At the hospital, they require assessment, stabilization, and treatment. Many need inpatient care.
Those with the most serious injuries could remain hospitalized for several days or weeks. Some will require inpatient rehabilitation for their injuries, which could mean weeks or months in another facility. Throughout this process, additional bills are rolling in. At the same time, the victim is missing work. Those with catastrophic injuries may never return to their previous job. These losses affect the entire family.
Our airbag injury lawyers understand how stressful this is for injured individuals and their families. To this end, we believe the companies who made and marketed defective parts should pay these expenses and losses. This is why we demand fair compensation for our clients that could include:
- Pain and suffering damages
- Medical care costs, current and future
- Ongoing support and future care needs
- Income losses
- Diminished capacity to work and earn due to lasting injuries
- Property damage and repair
- Miscellaneous expenses with receipts
We also work with families whose loved ones died from airbag injuries. Our personal injury lawyer in Boca Raton handles product liability cases regularly and is ready to help your family get justice. Under Florida law, we work with the victim’s personal representative to file a lawsuit and recover compensation.

Our Airbag Injury Lawyers Know How to Build a Compelling Case in Boca Raton
When you work with a personal injury lawyer from Ged Lawyers, you get a knowledgeable, experienced lawyer who knows how to investigate your injuries and show why the accused party should be legally responsible for covering the costs. We understand how airbag injuries occur—airbags deploy incorrectly, fail to deploy, or deploy when they shouldn’t—and the injuries they cause.
Some of the injuries we often see in clients hurt by defective airbags include:
- Facial lacerations
- Facial fractures
- Chest and torso injuries, including fractures and internal injuries
- Burns and scarring on the face, neck, chest, hands, and arms
- Wrist and hand fractures
- Skull fractures and traumatic brain injuries
- Shrapnel injuries, often penetrating
- Eye injuries and loss of vision
- Hearing damage and loss
There are many ways that an airbag can be defective, and numerous issues that could occur to make it that way. Common defects affect airbag sensors, the airbag itself, or airbag propellant canisters. Defects can happen because of design, manufacturing, marketing, or installation issues.
However, we do not have to prove where the process went wrong. We only need to show there was a defect in the product, and that defect caused our client’s injuries. This is because Florida holds manufacturers strictly liable for defective and dangerous products.
Still, we must investigate what happened and show how the airbag’s defect caused our client’s injuries. This could require our Boca Raton airbag injury lawyer to identify, preserve, and analyze evidence that includes:
- The police accident report
- Evidence from the vehicle, including any onboard computer data, the airbag in question, and any sensors
- Eyewitness statements
- Video of the incident and photographs of the vehicle
- Industry expert’s testimony about the defect
- Medical expert’s input about future care and prognosis
- Relevant medical records
- Documentation of the client’s recoverable damages
Once our Boca Raton auto accident lawyer has the necessary evidence, we can take the next steps to seek fair compensation in the case. This often results in a negotiated settlement that provides the money our client needs and deserves.
However, a lawsuit may be necessary in some cases. Per the Florida statute of limitations, we usually have up to two years to file the paperwork to begin this process.
