An airbag can save the life of the driver or passengers in a motor vehicle. However, defective airbags can do greater harm than good. If you think an airbag defect contributed to your injuries in a motor vehicle accident, you need a lawyer who understands motor vehicle product liability.

Defective airbags and injuries from airbags can be the result of:

  • Tearing of airbag fabric
  • Electrical and wiring issues
  • Too few or poor sensor placement
  • Poor deployment threshold
  • Inadequate consumer warnings, or failure to warn of known dangers
  • Airbag fabric catching on surrounding equipment and not deploying fully
  • Failing to reinstall airbags in a vehicle that had previously deployed airbags
  • Failing to use tethers to make sure airbags do no reach too far
  • Venting and folding defect (mistakes in the number, location and size of gas vents and patterns used to fold airbags).
