Despite the many benefits of airbags, several things need to go right in order for them to be effective. From properly working sensors and inflators to ensuring that the bags inflate in a matter of a few milliseconds, these devices must be thoroughly tested and inspected to avoid inflicting injury to the people they are designed to protect. Short-circuits, tears in the bags themselves, poor installation, faulty sensors, or other design defects can cause airbags to deploy under the wrong circumstances or fail to deploy at all, putting innocent people at risk.
Faulty airbags have been known to cause a wide range of injuries, including:
No matter what the circumstances may be, a serious injury or death caused by defective airbag is completely avoidable. Unfortunately, many auto manufacturers still routinely include unsafe airbags in their new vehicles, negligently allowing millions to continue driving with a “safety feature” which could kill or maim them for life.
If a faulty airbag has caused you harm, our firm’s experienced product liability lawyers can examine your case and file a personal injury claim against those responsible in pursuit of fair financial recovery for your losses. Depending on the extent of your injuries, you may be entitled to recover compensation for a wide range of damages, including:
If a loved one should unfortunately pass away as a result of injuries caused by a faulty airbag, additional compensation for funeral expenses, loss of personal relationship, and lost income may also be recovered by filing a wrongful death claim. Our team of advocates can review the circumstances of your claim and determine the most appropriate course of action to pursue.
