As we always tell prospective clients, if you’ve been hurt in a car accident, seek medical treatment first and foremost. After you’ve done that, if the car accident wasn’t your fault, seek legal advice because you may be entitled to compensation.
To surely receive compensation in a car accident case, two qualifications must be met.
- There has to be someone at fault (the more clearly this can be determined, the quicker the case will go).
- The person at fault must have insurance.
However, what if you were driving and hit a parked car, but you were injured because the airbag didn’t deploy? Or, what if the airbag deployed wrong and caused injury?
These are two likely cases.
It’s important to consider, however, who you’re going to be taking on if you decide to lay fault on the airbag for your injury – the car manufacturer.
A car company has a lot of money and a lot of power. Because of that, to have a good case against them, your injury likely needs to be catastrophic. Otherwise, more times than not, you’ll be fighting a losing battle.
