The Pellerin Law Firm aggressively represents clients who were involved in tire, seatbelt and airbag failure accidents.

When your tires, seatbelt or airbag fails as a result of defective design, poor maintenance or bad installation, you deserve to hold the party at fault accountable. If you were seriously hurt or lost a loved one due to a car accident with safety equipment failure, we want to help you discuss your options. We can help you investigate the accident to understand what caused the accident and help get the proper information together for your case. We recommend that you contact an attorney immediately so that the proper information can be collected directly after your accident.

Airbag failures

An airbag can be a lifesaver, but when it fails to deploy when necessary, or when it deploys when it shouldn’t, an airbag can cause a major injury or even death. Children are especially vulnerable to airbag failure. The Pellerin Law Firm is happy to discuss your options in your airbag failure case. Airbag failures may cause any of the following injuries:

  • Back injuries
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Serious bruising
  • Abrasions
  • Fractures
  • Facial injuries
  • Eye damage

Tire failures

With so many cars on our roads every day, it’s important that all vehicles are equipped with tires that are safe. Tires need to be manufactured without any defects and installed properly to ensure that everyone on the road is in good hands. When a tire doesn’t meet the proper safety standards, not only is the driver of that vehicle in danger, so is everyone else on the road. Blowouts due to defective tires can be deadly.

Tire failures can cause drivers to lose control and potentially collide with other vehicles. Taller vehicles may roll over as a result of tire failures. Tire blowouts are commonly caused by negligence. Tire blowouts occur as a result of being manufactured with ineffective adhesion, which leads to poor bonding and possible tread separation. These defects can occur as a result of mechanical errors or employee negligence.

If you’re involved in a tire failure accident, we recommend that you keep the tire from the accident and contact an attorney immediately. We’re happy to offer you a complimentary consultation to discuss your options in your tire failure case.

Seatbelt failure

If you were seriously hurt in an accident as a result of a seatbelt or safety restraint failure, you can hold the installer or manufacturer accountable for the negligence. If the seatbelt was designed poorly, manufactured incorrectly or installed in the wrong manner, your life was at risk.

If you’ve suffered as a result of tire failure, seatbelt failure or airbag failure, contact the Pellerin Law Firm today for a complimentary consultation. We are happy to discuss your options with you.
