Complaint - Air Bags

WE WERE INVOLVED IN AN AUTO ACCIDENT ON JULY 5, 2001 IN A HEAD-ON COLLISION WHICH KILLED MY HUSBAND IMMEDIATELY AND MY SON DIED TWO DAYS LATER DUE TO HEAD INJURIES. I WAS INJURED WITH RIB FRACTURES/ LOW BACK SPINAL FRACTURES AND MY LEFT LEG REQUIRED SURGERY. I AM UNABLE TO BEAR WEIGHT ON MY LEFT LEG FOR APPROXIMATELY SIX MONTHS. A CAR WAS GOING EAST ON I-40 AND I WAS GOING WEST. IT CROSSED THE MEDIAN TRYING TO MISS A LADDER THAT HAD FALLEN OUT OF ANOTHER VECHICLE AND IT HIT US HEAD-ON. AIRBAGS DID NOT INFLATE UPON IMPACT. FRONT PASSENGER DID INFLATE AFTER WE WERE REMOVED, AND VAN CAUGHT ON FIRE. MY SON MIGHT HAVE BEEN SAVED IF THE AIRBAGS HAD INFLATED SINCE THE CAR WENT DOWN THE SIDE OF MY VAN. WE ALL HAD OUR SEATBELTS ON. MY SON WAS ONLY SEVEN YEARS OLD.
