Pursuing Justice For Accident Victims In Indiana

You deserve compensation if an airbag is defective

Airbags can potentially cause serious injuries. While they can save lives in the right circumstances, airbags that go off when they're not needed can put people in real danger.

Airbag injuries are most often caused by improper positioning, malfunctioning sensors, exposure to the chemicals inside the airbag and the failure to deflate. For example, imagine you're sitting too closely to the wheel of your vehicle. When the airbag inflates, it could cause crushing injuries due to the force of the crash throwing you forward and the force of the airbag inflating. This risk is why you should always sit as far away from the steering column as is comfortable.

Sometimes, airbags are defective. If they don't open during a crash, you could injure yourself badly. Without an airbag, you could end up hitting your head on the steering wheel or dashboard. If the airbag does inflate but explodes, it could leak dangerous chemicals and spray them on you. The high speed at which the airbag is released can also cause burns from friction.

Airbags are supposed to be there to protect you. In fact, cars are sold by the thousands with the preconception that the airbags will save lives. Many do, but those that are defective or that don't deploy may end up causing more harm than good. If you're suffering as a result of a defective airbag, it's important not to ignore the situation. You have a limited amount of time to file a lawsuit against the manufacturer and others who caused your injuries. Our site has more information.
