Los Angeles Defective Airbag Attorney
If You Were Injured by a Defective Airbag, Call Our Team Today
We all expect the airbags in our cars will protect us in case of an accident, deploying at the moment of impact to cushion us from the worst of the force. We also expect they will not deploy unless we are in a dangerous collision. However, these safety devices do not always live up to these promises.
Airbag defects are unfortunately far too common. In fact, one of the biggest airbag manufacturers in the industry published extensive product recalls after discovering deadly flaws in devices that made it out on the road. Faulty airbags can make collisions more dangerous for all passengers. They may even result in devastating injuries for those who haven't even been in an accident.
With our years of experience and insight, we are more than equipped to assist with your airbag injury case. Our compassionate attorneys can carefully review your claim, determine the cause of the defect, and fight for the compensation you deserve.
If you have suffered an injury like this, do not hesitate to contact one of our Los Angeles defective airbag lawyers right away.
Dangers of Malfunctioning Airbags
While product manufacturers guarantee their goods are safe, their claims are contradicted by the many recalls they are forced to publish. With the number of airbag errors that have come to light recently, manufacturers, vehicle inspectors, and car dealerships should be more concerned with ensuring every aspect of an automobile is functioning correctly.
Airbags have been known to malfunction in the following ways:
- Airbag deploys when there is no accident: This can startle the driver, obscure their vision, and cause an accident.
- Airbag deploys too soon: This can jar the driver and cause them to lose control of the vehicle during a crucial moment.
- Airbag fails to deploy: Faulty wiring can arrest an airbag’s operation when an accident occurs. This leaves the driver with only the seat belt for protection. They may hurtle into the steering wheel and dashboard, sustaining serious injury.
- Airbag may explode when deployed: Defective inflators may fail to shut off in time, causing airbags to burst and send shrapnel flying.
- Airbag injures shorter people: The airbag is designed for people between 5'8" and 5'10" in height. Head and face injuries are common among shorter passengers.
