Representing Clients Injured by Seatbelts and Airbags

In a vehicle, the seatbelt and airbag are in place to provide safety measures to drivers and passengers in the event of a car accident. However, these protective devices are also sometimes the cause of injuries. While a seatbelt or airbag-related injury is much better than an individual being ejected from the vehicle or hitting the windshield, the injury from the protective devices can still be severe.

If you have been injured by a seatbelt or airbag during the course of a car accident, turn to our legal team at theRobinette Legal Group. From our office in Morgantown, West Virginia, we handle airbag, seatbelt and other injury cases for clients throughout the surrounding communities.Contact us todayto schedule a free consultation with a seatbelt and airbag injury attorney at our firm.

West Virginia Seat Belt & Airbag Injury Lawyers

A range of defects may be the reason that the airbag or seatbelt caused injuries. There may have been installation, repair or workmanship errors. The seatbelt or airbag may have been designed or produced defectively, and therefore was defective from the time it was installed in the vehicle.

Types of Airbag Injuries and Seatbelt Injuries

Due to the force of an airbag deployment, or the force of a car accident that results in the seatbelt restraining a passenger, there are many different types of minor and severe injuries that may result from the devices, including:

  • Brain injuries
  • Head trauma
  • Concussion
  • Neck injuries
  • Back injuries
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Internal injuries
  • Facial lacerations and injuries
  • Broken bones
  • Soft tissue injuries

Seatbelts and airbags affect children differently than adults, due to their size and weight. We represent families whose children have been injured by improperly installed seatbelts and airbags, in addition to other defects in the protective equipment that may have resulted in the child’sseatbelt and airbag injuries.

Our Case Results

Brain Injury

While timbering in WV, a heavy equipment operator sustained a permanent brain injury while performing the duties of his job. What price can you put on the loss of a fully functioning, fully reasoning brain? Jeff Robinette was able to negotiate a settlement that was annuitized to provide for this man for the rest of his life.

Crushed Leg Injury

Imagine having your leg crushed so badly in an accident that you have to undergo two surgeries to insert multiple pins and have a rod hammered into the bone just to stabilize the femur. Unfortunately, the first rod inserted into the bone didn’t accomplish the desired effect, so the rod had to be removed and surgically reinserted. Imagine the great pain, the months of therapy and recovery, and the frustration of knowing you can never return to the type of work you have performed for decades.

Jeff Robinette was able to obtain a great enough settlement to pay this man’s medical bills in their entirety and money enough to start a new business so he could work and live a productive life even with his permanent impairment.

Crushed Foot Injury

While working in Morgantown, WV for a large national retailer, our client, a young woman in her early twenties, was ordered to use equipment that she was not properly trained to use. In the course of attempting to complete her task, she sustained a severe crush injury to her foot. Due to this incident, our client lost full use of this foot for the rest of her life and was living with chronic, persistent pain.

Our firm was able to obtain a sizable settlement which took care of all her medical bills and future treatment for her foot injury. The settlement was ample enough to allow this young woman to go back to college and retrain for employment which will accommodate her permanent disability.
