Blume Donnelly partner Jeffrey Zenna settled a case for a 40-year-old woman who sustained a partial loss of hearing in one ear after an airbag in her car deployed unnecessarily. The airbag went off without the vehicle making any impact; and the blunt trauma of the airbag striking our client caused the hearing loss. Despite there being no claim for lost wages in this case, Jeffrey was still able to settle the matter for $345,000.
