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 & Sanders 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.

What Our Happy Clients say

I just wanted to take a quick time out to say something nice about Mr. Tim Sanders. This man spent an entire year handling my affairs like he was my personal friend. He went to bat for me, and I could tell he cared a great deal about me, my case directly, and he clearly takes a great deal of pride and integrity into his work. You hear a lot of negative about lawyers in this world. Tim, was a tireless worker to get me what I deserved. This guy does his living from the heart. I made a really great choice when I called Tim. My wife and I are so thankful we did.

My experience with Ligori & Sanders was excellent. Their attention to detail and genuine concern for my situation showed that they truly cared about me as a client. The staff was professional, knowledgeable, and kept me informed throughout the entire process. I would highly recommend Ligori & Sanders to anyone needing help and direction after an auto accident.

Ligori & Sanders 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 & Sanders.

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 got into an auto accident and hired Mr. Sanders to represent me a couple weeks later after my insurance company’s lackluster performance to help get me back to normal. I was nervous, this was my first accident with injury and I had never hired a lawyer before. Well let me say, my expectations were met and exceeded, every step of the way. Ligori and Sanders were focused on me and my health. They were polite, prompt, and went to bat for me when the insurance company was not. Not only would I recommend Ligori and Sanders to anyone who needs them, I would insist.
