Injured by an Airbag?
Call Our Los Angeles Product Liability Attorneys
We all expect that airbags in our cars will help protect us in an accident by deploying at the moment of impact. We also expect that they will not deploy until there is an actual accident. However, this is not always the case. Airbag defects are unfortunately far too common and can result in devastating injuries for those that haven't even been in an accident. In fact, there has been product recalls on one of the biggest airbag brands in the industry.

With our years of experience and insight, we are more than equipped to assist with your case. Our compassionate injury attorneys can carefully review your case, determine the cause of the defect, and fight to obtain the fair compensation you deserve.
Dangers of Malfunctioning Airbags
While product manufacturers all guarantee their parts are safe and ready for use, product recalls show us that is not always true. With so many airbag malfunctions occurring on a regular basis, it should be more of a concern for manufacturers, vehicle inspectors, and car sellers to ensure every aspect of an automobile is functioning correctly.
Airbags have been known to malfunction in the following ways:
- Airbag deploys too soon: This can jar the driver and cause them to lose control of the vehicle.
- Airbag opens up when there is no accident: This again can startle the driver, obscure their vision and cause an accident.
- Airbag fails to deploy at all: Faulty wiring can cause an air bag to fail to open when an accident occurs. This leaves the driver with only the seat belt for protection. They can go into the steering wheel and be injured.
- Airbags injures shorter people: The airbag is designed for people from 5'8" to 5'10." Shorter people have been injured in the face as the bag expands.
If you have been injured by any of the above mentioned defects, make sure you reach out to our firm right away. Even if you are unsure if an airbag defect caused your injuries, we can have an expert examine your case and determine what course of action you should take.
