Confidential settlement for a man injured by a defective airbag

Our firm secured a confidential settlement for a man who lost sight in his right eye because of a defective airbag. On May 15, 2010 the plaintiff was a belted passenger in a 1997 Dodge Caravan that was being operated by Margarito Rivas Oscar Lopez. A vehicle driven by Alexis Lebron Roman crossed the median and collided with Plaintiff head-on at a high rate of speed. The front passenger-side airbag deployed, causing pieces of the vehicle, including, but not limited to, part of the dashboard, airbag, or airbag housing, to strike Plaintiff’s right eye, rupturing the globe and ultimately requiring removal of his eyeball.
