If you have suffered injuries caused by a defective airbag, contact our lawyers today and seek the compensation you deserve.
Airbags were first introduced as a safety feature in automobiles in the early 80’s, in an effort to reduce the risk of injuries resulting from auto accidents. In theory, an air bag creates a pillow-type effect between the vehicle occupant and the hard surfaces of a vehicle during a motor vehicle accident, thereby protecting drivers and passengers from major injuries. Airbags became a required component of vehicles sold in the United States in 1999 and have reduced wrongful deaths in frontal crashes by an estimated 30 percent. Unfortunately, serious injuries can result from the use of an airbag itself.
An airbag has three main components: an accident sensor, the airbag inflator and the airbag itself, and is meant to be used in conjunction with a seat belt, not on its own. However, this system is not without its defects. There have been faulty airbag lawsuits and defective airbag claims filed on behalf of injured individuals in the United States, claiming the failure of one or more components of the airbag system. Personal injuries sustained from airbag injuries range from soft tissue injuries, blindness and even wrongful deaths.
