Auto Defects • Seatbelt Failures • Defective Airbags • Defective Tires
Tires, brakes and safety equipment such as seat belts and air bags are intended to prevent accidents and protect car occupants in the event of a car accident. When an injury or death occurs because of auto defects such as tire failure or an air bag that did not deploy, we are understandably angered because this tragedy was preventable.

What Do You Know About Your Tires?
Few drivers know that tires deteriorate over time — even if the tread looks good, and even if the tire has never been used. Tires in the shop may have been in storage for several years, all the while degrading in quality. Tire shelf life is about 6 years. If tire separation or disintegration was a factor in your car accident, you may have a claim against the tire manufacturer or the shop that sold the old tire.
Airbags are a safety device that is supposed to deploy if a vehicle suddenly slows down as it would in a front-end collision. Your air bag should deploy if you were going 20 to 25 miles an hour during a collision. If you were in an accident and your airbag failed to inflate, you were not protected and may have suffered serious head injuries.
On the other hand, sometimes airbags themselves cause injury by deploying with such force that the driver is injured by being struck in the face by the airbag. People have suffered broken noses, cheekbones or other facial bones, or injured their eyes. Children have died from suffocation.
If your airbag caused a serious injury, it may have been defective The manufacturer may be responsible for compensating you financially. Contact our Dallas law office to speak to an attorney.
A seatbelt is only good if it holds at the time of impact. A seatbelt failure leaves the user vulnerable to injury. If you were injured by a defective seatbelt, the manufacturer is required to compensate you for your injuries.
