Terry McCartney, acting as local counsel for Oregon attorney Larry Baron, participated in a successful mediation here in New York for a small-statured young woman who suffered severe eye injuries after being involved in a relatively minor collision in a 1994 Nissan Altima in which the air bags deployed. She was in the right front passenger seat with her seat belt on. We claimed that the passenger side air bag deployed too aggressively and too far into the occupant survival space. Subsequent to our client's accident, Nissan recalled this model vehicle to correct the problem. This was our second settlement with Nissan for this defect. Veronica Kheyfets v. Nissan.
