Defective Air Bag Recalls: When A Protective Device Becomes Perilous
Air bags are supposed to protect drivers and passengers from injury in the event of a crash. But what if these very air bags proved to be the cause of injury? Unfortunately, this is not such an outlandish scenario. Air bags that deploy incorrectly can and have caused serious injury and even death. In some cases, air bags have deployed without warning, or not deployed when they should have. In a recent case, air bags have deployed so forcefully that they sent shrapnel through the interior of the car.
Manufacturers can initiate an air bag recall by offering to repair or replace a defective product for free. But a free repair or replacement air bag won’t pay for your medical bills, lost income and other costs associated with a defective air bag-related injury. If you’ve been injured by a defective air bag, 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 Air Bag Injure You?
Deployed air bags 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 air bags are varied and can be severe, including:
- Broken bones
- Eye injuries
- Traumatic brain injury
- Internal bleeding
