46 Year Old Woman’s Estate Settles Airbag Defect Claim

February, 2011

Zajac & Arias represented the estate of a 46 year old wife and mother of four killed in a single-vehicle head-on crash. The woman was the front seat passenger. The estate claimed that the airbag should have deployed. Testimony of the on-scene first responders confirmed that the authorities were puzzled why the front passenger airbag had not deployed given the nature of the damage. The settlement was reached with the help of a neutral mediator. The terms of the settlement are confidential. The case was handled by Eric G. Zajac. The case was referred to Mr. Zajac by a law firm in upstate Pennsylvania.
