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. We can discuss your legal options, and if we handle your auto product liability case, we will work tirelessly to obtain the most compensation possible for your injuries.
