Racine Defective Airbag Attorneys
Modern airbag systems are comparatively more complex than those from years past. Often including more precise meters to measure deceleration before deployment, side airbags, and reformulated powder to inflate the bag, these systems are significantly safer for drivers and passengers. With all of these innovations, however, airbags may still fail to deploy or deploy without the presence of an accident, resulting in serious injuries or even death.

Types of Airbag Injuries
There are several common types of airbag defects. Early deployment or inflating without an accident actually occurring can cause serious injuries such as fractures around the face and neck. In addition, airbags that fail to deploy altogether cause motorists to rely heavily on the restraint of a seat belt, which often does little to protect from whiplash or brain injuries. Finally, poor performance from a mechanic or factory worker can result in a badly built airbag or one that has not been properly installed. As a result, the following injuries can occur:
- Broken nose
- Lost or chipped teeth
- Neck or skull fractures
- Brain damage or concussions
- Damage to the eyes or ears
With a properly working airbag, many of these injuries can be avoided in the event of a car accident.
Being injured because of an auto defect can leave drivers without a sense of trust in their vehicles or those who maintain them. Contact the Racine defective airbag lawyers of Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. ® at 800-242-2874 to learn more about your legal options following an automotive malfunction.
