Rear-End Collision Airbag Injuries
PERAZZO LAW SERVES AIRBAG INJURIES FROM CAR ACCIDENTS IN MIAMI-DADE
Airbag accident victims and the injuries sustained from airbag deployment as a result of a motor vehicle accident or third party negligence such as faulty airbag software, design or manufacturing can lead to a number of physical, psychological, and financial difficulties which require profession legal advice. In Miami, the Perazzo Law Firm handles Personal Injury claims for those that have suffered physical trauma as a result of an accident that caused the deployment of an airbag. Though meant to save lives, airbags can lead to physical injuries to the face, head, neck, shoulder, chest, back, hips and legs. The force with which an airbag deploys upon impact can be devastating to fragile parts of the body such as the face and neck areas, as these areas receive much of the airbags force upon impact after a collision. Rear-end collisions that lead to the deployment of an airbag can cause the driver and passenger's heads to jerk forward and their shoulders back. When a motorist's head jerks forward it can lead to neck injury. The human neck is very sensitive to violent movement and once the neck area suffers injury from a car or truck accident, Perazzo Law knows from experience that the damage can be permanent. An airbag that deploys as a result of a rear-end collision can also cause bodily injury to the driver's face. As the head jerks forward, the airbag deploys into a person's facial area. If the driver of the vehicle that is involved in a rear-end collision is wearing glasses at the time of the accident, there could be extensive eye injury. An airbag that deploys into the face of a driver that is wearing glasses can lead to blindness, a broken eye socket, or loss of an eye. Shoulder injuries because of an airbag that deploys in a rear-end collision can include water in the shoulder area, a broken clavicle or collarbone. Perazzo Law knows that breaks and fractures from car accidents in Miami are quite common. However, rear-end collisions can result in serious injury to the shoulder area as the shoulders get pressed back by the seat belt as the airbag deploys into the driver's face. Side airbags can also cause shoulder injuries as a result of the force with which they deploy upon impact in a car accident. In Miami, Perazzo Law handles all types of motor vehicle accidents and has ample car accident experience handling personal injury cases that involve bodily harm from airbag related incidents. Rear-end collisions can also trigger multiple airbags to deploy within vehicle that have them. When multiple airbags deploy from a rear-end collision, injuries can include the hips and legs. An airbag that deploys can sometimes impact on a driver or passenger's knees, and result in lacerations, cuts, and even fractures. Fractures to the knee area can require surgical intervention and rehabilitation. Medical expenses to treat and cover bodily injury from an airbag related incident can run into the tens of thousands. That is why Perazzo Law recommends accident victims that have suffered personal injury or losses as a result of an airbag, to make sure they receive proper medical care from your family healthcare professional and legal advice from our experienced Personal Injury staff at our offices in Miami-Dade.
