Sit down with an attorney that has successfully pursued products liability claims on behalf of folks in air bag cases. You may have missed your statute of limitations. In any case, air bag cases are tough and take plenty of resources to pursue successfully.
In no way am I offering you legal advice, and in no way has my comment created an attorney-client relationship. You are not to rely upon my note above in any way, but insted need to sit down with counsel and share all relevant facts before receiving fully-informed legal advice. If you want to be completely sure of your rights, you must sit down with an experienced criminal defense attorney to be fully aware of your rights.
Only a tiny handful of lawyers handle these cases, so Google "defective air bag lawyer" to find one.
The first question is how long has it been since the incident. If it has been too long the statute of limitations may have expired. I would search online for an experienced product liability attorney in Texas (if that is where the incident happened) and find someone who has litigated auto product liability cases, in particular airbag cases. They can best guide you as to whether you have a case, whether you still have time, and whether the case makes economic sense.
