It costs nothing to speak to an attorney about how to join the Takata airbag lawsuit. Owners of vehicles with defective Takata airbags have suffered catastrophic injuries and even lost their lives. Takata and the automakers involved with this issue must be held accountable for the pain and suffering their negligence has caused, which is what the Takata airbag lawsuit is aiming to accomplish.

If you’ve been in an accident and your airbag has failed, and it ruptured and expelled shrapnel and you’ve been injured as a result, you should absolutely see a lawyer. In these types of cases, plaintiff’s lawyers will consult with potential clients for free. They’ll do an analysis of the case for free. And they’ll tell the client; you have a case, you don’t have a case, this is the type of case I can handle, this is not the type of case I can handle. So all that important advice you can get without spending any money. It does not cost the victim anything to pursue this type of lawsuit. Typically, these types of cases are handled by lawyers on what’s known as a contingency fee. In other words, if you don’t win, if you don’t succeed, if the lawyer doesn’t recover anything for you, the lawyer doesn’t get paid. If you do succeed and you do recover something through a judgement or a settlement, or after a trial, then the lawyer is paid a percentage of what’s recovered. The way we handle our litigation is on a contingency fee basis. And that’s very important. What that means is, you can come in and have the first meeting with us for free without a contract, and tell us what the problem is. We will decide whether or not we can handle that case for you. If we do, our contract is on a contingent basis. We only get paid if we win the case for you. And we get a percentage of what we recover. As far as the costs are concerned, like the cost of filing a case, the deposition, travel expenses, hiring engineers, all of that. We also get the best possible people to win your case and we advance that cost and if we don’t win the case and if we don’t make a recovery, we don’t ask you to pay anything. So there is no risk whatsoever to you in the way that we do business for you. We get paid back our cost if we’re successful in making a recovery and that’s when we get paid our attorneys fee and you get a balance; that’s the way we handle our cases, on a contingency fee basis. We call that the key to the courthouse for the people who can’t afford a lawyer. For more information, call Colson Hicks Eidson 305-476-7400 visit our website, Colson.com.
