While airbags are intended to save lives, defective ones may end up doing more harm. On top of compensation from the automobile accident, you may be able to recover additional money for damages and injury caused by a defective airbag.
Automobile companies spend billions of dollars on recalls to fix such problems. Unfortunately, product recalls may not come soon enough to avoid injury.
Examples of Defective Airbags
- Deploys with too much force
- Does not deploy or is too slow
- Deploys improperly or at the wrong angle
- Unnecessarily deploys
- Contains foreign objects such as shrapnel when deploying
The product liability or negligence of the airbag defect may fall upon the designer, manufacturer, or installer of the airbag. These cases can be very complicated and require an in-depth investigation and even expert testimonies. Attorney Nathaniel B. Preston (“Nate”) is an experienced lawyer in handling defective airbag cases and will assist you at every step of the litigation process and help you determine who is liable.
It is federal law that all cars be equipped with airbags. Do not sit closer than 10 inches away from the steering wheel. Do not remove or modify an existing airbag or it may void insurance coverage and decrease the chances of recovering damages.
