How Can an Attorney Help Me Get Justice After a Naples Airbag Injury?
At Ged Lawyers, our team fights for the money and accountability our client deserves after a defective product injury.

These cases can be challenging to prove, but our airbag injury lawyer knows how to build a robust and compelling case.

Our Airbag Injury Attorney Can Build a Compelling Case
Our auto accident lawyers know how airbag injuries occur and who is liable for these incidents. We help clients build a compelling, evidence-supported case against the car or parts manufacturer. Some ways that airbag injuries occur include:
- Airbag sensor malfunctions that cause failed deployment
- Defective airbag propellant canisters that cause shrapnel injuries
- Airbags that deploy without a crash
Depending on what happened, the injuries in these cases can vary widely. Among the most catastrophic injuries are those caused by exploding, fracturing airbag propellant canisters. Many victims of the recalled Takata airbags, for example, died from penetrating shrapnel injuries.
Some common defective airbag injuries include:
- Excessive facial injuries from deployment or shrapnel
- Chest and torso injuries preventable if airbags deployed properly
- Burns on the face, chest, hands, and arms from a defective deployment
- Fractures of facial bones, skull, and arms
- Traumatic brain injuries that would not have occurred with airbag deployment
- Eye injuries from shrapnel or chemical burns
- Hearing loss
- Internal injuries and bleeding
Our lawyers know how to investigate what went wrong with the airbag. This process allows us to identify the liable party or parties, gather evidence, and build a compelling case to support our settlement negotiations.
Once we begin talking to the liable party and its lawyers, we can often reach a fair settlement through negotiation or an alternative dispute technique such as mediation. When this is not effective, or there is another reason to do so, we will prepare and file a lawsuit against the liable company or companies. This could improve our chances of a settlement or set the stage for a jury trial.
When Should I Contact an Airbag Injury Attorney About My Case?
Our Naples lawyers encourage injury victims to contact our team as early as possible about their case. If your injuries are stable and you can make the call, do it today. If your loved one has catastrophic injuries, reach out on their behalf. Evidence can disappear quickly, and we only have one chance to build a strong case.
There are also deadlines for filing a lawsuit in Florida. The statute of limitations in a product liability and personal injury case is usually two years from the date of the injury. This was reduced from a much longer period in 2023 under HB 837/SB236.
Failing to file a lawsuit before this deadline could mean losing the right to do so. You do not want to risk being unable to recover fair compensation and hold the manufacturer liable for the pain and suffering they caused.
