Grieving Family Awarded Sizeable Settlement Following Airbag Failure
An injured couple was awarded a confidential 7-figure settlement following a serious auto accident, thanks to the hard work of a team of attorneys at The Carlson Law Firm.
In 2014, a husband and wife were travelling through an intersection on FM 3470 in Killeen, TX when a second vehicle failed to yield the right of way and struck the unsuspecting couple.
Despite the significant damage to the vehicle, their airbags failed to deploy. It was believed that the wife suffered no serious injuries, however, within two days, she was taken to the hospital where she succumbed to an initially undiagnosed brain bleed.
The Carlson Law Firm quickly sprang into action, investigating multiple angles of the case, from the auto accident, to medical malpractice, to product liability.
“Our firm is well-equipped to handle larger cases that may have a variety of claims because we have the experience and the man-power,” said Managing Partner, Craig Carlson. “We have an advantage that other firms don’t”.
“This was a case where a family lost a wife, a mother, a sister, an invaluable member of their family. While no amount of money can take away the pain they are feeling, being able to hold one of the responsible parties accountable is justice in action,” Carlson added.
