Defective Airbag Recalls
When A Protective Device Becomes Perilous
Airbags are supposed to protect drivers and passengers from injury in the event of a crash. But what if these very airbags proved to be the cause of injury? Unfortunately, this is not such an outlandish scenario. Airbags that deploy incorrectly can and have caused serious injury and even death. In some cases, airbags have deployed without warning, or not deployed when they should have. In a recent case, airbags have deployed so forcefully that they sent shrapnel through the interior of the car.
Manufacturers can initiate an airbag recall by offering to repair or replace a defective product for free. But a free repair or replacement airbag won’t pay for your medical bills, lost income and other costs associated with a defective airbag-related injury. If you’ve been injured by a defective airbag, an experienced attorney can advocate on your behalf to get the compensation you need to pay your bills while you focus on healing.

How Can An Airbag Injure You?
Deployed airbags have the look of a big, soft pillow. But that’s not how they feel if you get in a crash. Injuries linked to defective airbags are varied and can be severe, including:
- Broken bones
- Eye injuries
- Traumatic brain injury
- Internal bleeding
