The Dangers Of Defective Air Bags
Recent recalls of Takata air bags were related to defective air bag inflaters. The devices can rupture when the air bag is deployed, causing metal fragments to fly out and potentially strike vehicle occupants. Additional types of air bag problems include:
- Failure of an air bag to deploy in crash
- Unwanted deployment of an air bag while driving
- Failure of an air bag to fully inflate
- Deployment of an air bag with too much force
- Untethered air bags
- Faulty replacement of air bags following an accident
Air bag defects can cause serious or fatal injuries to passengers. Our lawyers help the injured recover compensation from negligent manufacturers and suppliers. We also represent the families in cases of wrongful death. We have recovered millions of dollars in compensation for our clients.
