Air bags are an important safety device in motor vehicles. Almost every car manufactured today is equipped with airbags. Airbags are often installed in different parts of the car and designed to provide protection to different parts of the body. For example, front airbags are meant to keep drivers and passengers from hitting their heads on the dashboard, steering wheel or windshield during an accident. Side airbags aim to keep passengers inside the motor vehicle in an accident that results in the vehicle rolling over or during a side-impact collision.
However, despite these promises, airbags don’t always function properly, resulting in serious injuries to motorists and their passengers. Moreover, even if an airbag properly functions in the event of a collision, the instantaneous and very forceful manner in which it deploys can seriously injure the passengers and driver. Some common air bag injuries include:
In addition to causing serious injuries, a defective air bag design can also complicate rescue efforts in the event of a crash, posing serious risk to both the victim and the rescue workers. Moreover, air bags are especially dangerous to young children and individuals shorter than 5’2”.

I can't possibly say enough good things about my experience with this law firm. It's difficult to imagine going through this trial without Gersowitz, Libo, & Korek and in particular, Jeff Korek. Articulate, intelligent, kind, and direct were my first impressions of him and until I saw him in the courtroom, I had no idea that these qualities would make him unstoppable at trial. In a lawsuit that spanned almost 7 years, I put myself in his hands and wouldn't hesitate to do it again. Difficult at times but Jeff and his team were sensitive to those difficulties and made me understand that they would help and protect me during the process. I came to trust them implicitly. Jeff and his team not only secured my ability to pay for future medical treatments and chemotherapy, but he made sure that my children's future was secure. At Gersowitz, Libo, & Korek, they fight for you like you're family and treat you as such. Thank you, Jeff, for fighting for my future and helping me stay in the fight with you!
