Do Not Wait to Contact Counsel After Your Accident
If you were in an accident and your airbags did not deploy, then you may be the victim of a defective product and have a case for financial compensation.
There May Be a Time Limit on Your Ability to Bring a Claim
According to the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles, there were more than 402,000 accidents on Florida’s roads in 2017, and many of them resulted in serious injury. Some of these injuries may have been exacerbated by a defect in the vehicle. If you fall into this category of crash victims, you may be entitled to recoverable losses.
It is in your interest to contact a personal injury or defective product lawyer sooner rather than later, as the time you have to file your case is typically capped to two years from the date of the accident under FL § 95.11. We recommend that you contact a lawyer even if two years have passed, however, as you may still be eligible to bring legal action under extenuating circumstances.
