It’s an unfortunate truth that across the country, people are injured or even killed in motor vehicle crashes due to a problem with their vehicle’s airbags. What is considered a safety feature can sometimes cause serious harm or death, and consumers need to be aware of this hazard. Consumer Justice Attorney Edward M. Ricci has a long history of litigating cases involving failed or defective airbags.
Airbags cause injury in several ways:
When these various types of airbag failure occur, the potential results include serious internal injuries, head trauma and brain damage, blindness, broken necks, and in some cases, decapitation. Women of small stature and children under 16 are especially at risk.
Drivers don’t have the chance to test the airbags in their vehicle until the airbag’s functionality becomes a matter of life or death. Unfortunately, as the need for airbags has increased, the overall quality has decreased and this is seen in the sharp increase of recalls by manufacturers.
