Air Bag Malfunction Lawsuit Claims Lawyer

Air bags are designed to protect drivers and passengers when an impact auto accident occurs. Unfortunately, due to design and manufacturing defects, some air bags can cause serious harm and even death when deployed. Air bag malfunctions and defects have been the subject of news headlines in recent years, causing thousands of injuries to unsuspecting consumers. If you or a family member have been injured due to a malfunctioning or defective air bag, contact us at Ligori & Ligori Attorneys at Law. You may be eligible to seek compensation through an auto product liability claim.

Air bags can save lives, and that is an undisputed fact. Even if there are minor injuries caused by the deployment of an air bag, if it works correctly, it can minimize the injuries sustained in a vehicle crash. However, there are malfunctioning air bag issues that have plagued the auto industry. These defective components cause the air bag to deploy when not needed or cause unnecessary injuries due to manufacturing design or production flaws. When these occur, the manufacturer of the air bag may be liable for any injuries caused to consumers.

Injuries Caused by Defective Air Bags

Air bags can deploy at speeds near 200 MPH. Depending on the vehicle, air bags can be located in the steering wheel, dashboard and on the side panels of a vehicle. The speed and velocity of air bag deployment can cause burns and impact injuries, even when working correctly. Unfortunately, air bag defects can cause air bags to deploy when a collision does not occur, or they can explode, expelling shards of metal into occupants in the car. Injuries attributed to air bags include:

  • Fractured hands, wrists and arms
  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Head trauma, skull fractures and eye injuries
  • Lacerations, burns and contusions
  • Internal and external bleeding
  • Death

Unsafe air bags have been responsible for deaths and serious injuries. If you or a family member have been harmed by a malfunctioning or defective air bag, contact our team at Ligori & Ligori Attorneys at Law today.

Ligori & Ligori is an amazing law firm. The employees take time with you to make sure that you truly understand the details of your case and why things are done a certain way to produce the best results. When calling, I always spoke to a person and on the off chance that a message was left, I received a return call promptly. I highly recommend Ligori & Ligori.

Michael J.

Mr. Ligori's firm took the time to explain the legal process and find another attorney in another county. If this law firm can go the extra distance for not even their client, imagine the dedication and expertise if you were their client.

Angela K.

I had an amazing experience with Ligori & Ligori law firm. They handled my case with such professionalism. From the very beginning by sending someone to my home to get details and interview me after my accident, to my case manager Rochelle who was always a call away and explained every step and made sure there was always transparency and kept me updated with everything. I can be very tough and I called way too many times with millions of questions and my calls were never unanswered and my questions and concerns were always answered. Thanks to their amazing team, from the receptionist to John Castro the lawyer on my case who was always personal and relatable. Highly recommended!
