Glendale, Arizona Airbag Injury Attorney
Airbags for cars, trucks, vans, and SUVs were designed to save lives and help lessen injuries during an accident. Despite the reason they were created, defective airbags still exist. These defective airbags can injure drivers and passengers or even result in loss of life. Every year, billions of dollars are spent by car manufacturers to fix auto defects such as faulty airbags. Regardless of the recalls, they might not be fast enough to prevent all injuries suffered. If you have been injured by a defective airbag in an accident, you might be able to recover damages because of the accident itself and additional damages if you suffered damages because of the faulty airbag in your car.
Causes of Faulty Airbags Might Be Caused By:
- Airbags that explode
- Airbags deploying with excessive force
- Airbags failing to deploy or deploying too slowly
- Improper deployment of the airbag or slow deployment
- Airbag deployment that is unexpected or unnecessary
- Shrapnel or foreign objects in deploying airbag
When you encounter a situation such as these, your car’s airbag defects could fall on product liability or the designer’s negligence, installer, or the manufacturer. Pursuing an airbag injury lawsuit can be challenging, so you need a lawyer experienced in handling such accident injury claims. Your case will require expert testimony accompanied by evidence from an in-depth investigation. Phoenix attorney Nathaniel B. Preston “Nate” has skills and experience in handling claims resulting from defective airbags.
Airbag Safety Precautions
Federal law requires all cars to come equipped with airbags. For added safety, make sure you are seated 10 inches or more away from the vehicle’s steering wheel. This might mean moving your seat back farther. You shouldn’t try to remove or modify your vehicle’s airbag because you would risk voiding insurance coverage and impact your odds of recovering any damages you suffer from an accident. Airbags are there for your protection, so don’t put yourself at greater risk by attempting to alter them.
