Did a defective airbag cause you to sustain serious injuries in an auto collision? File a claim against a negligent manufacturer with the help of a Detroit airbag injury attorney at Christensen Law.
Every day that you get behind the wheel of your car, you know there’s a possibility of being in a vehicle collision. You likely also trust that if you are in an accident, your seat belt and airbags are going to keep you safe and hopefully protect you from serious harm.
But, what if one of those parts malfunctions and fails to protect you or even causes you harm instead? Your only option is to file a claim against the manufacturer of the product. When a manufacturer creates a product that malfunctions when you need it most, they are on the hook for your injuries and losses.
Ways That Airbags Can Malfunction and Cause Harm
Unfortunately, airbags and their functioning are complicated, and if everything doesn’t work perfectly, you could be injured as a result. One obvious way your airbag can hurt you is if it fails to deploy at all.
There are many other ways your airbag can injure you, as well. For instance, your airbag can deploy too slowly and won’t prevent you from coming into contact with the steering wheel, dashboard, etc.
Below are just a few of the ways your airbag could cause you injury. Your airbag could:
- Deploy and contain shrapnel that forcefully impacts your body
- Deploy at the wrong angle
- Deploy too slowly or too quickly
- Doesn’t deploy at all
- Deploys too forcefully
