Injuries from Defective Airbags
While the proliferation of airbags in the 1970s and 1980s greatly reduced the number and severity of injuries associated with car accidents, these devices have several inherent dangers that can lead to devastating accidents. Some of these incidents involve the improper installation of the airbag system, but the majority is the result of defects in the design or manufacturing of the system itself.
If you or someone you know has been hurt due to a defective airbag, you may be entitled to compensation to help with your medical bills and other damages. To discuss your case in more detail, contact a knowledgeable Racine auto accident attorney from Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. today at 800-242-2874.
Types of Injuries
Airbags must be carefully designed, manufactured, and installed so that they act as safety features rather than hazards in a vehicle. If there are mistakes made at any of these steps, it can result in unexpected or improper deployment, which can lead to injuries including the following:
- Internal organ damage
- Cuts and abrasions
- Broken bones
- Head trauma
Additionally, should the airbag fail to deploy in the event of an accident, a person can be left with injuries that he or she would have avoided if the airbag was free from defects.
If you have suffered an injury caused by a defective airbag, you should not be forced to bear the financial burden of another party’s negligence.
