Air bags are designed to protect us in case of a crash over 30 miles per hour. However, if they are not made properly, they can cause serious harm to passengers and drivers. An Airbag deploys or goes off with the same mechanism as a bullet from a gun. Just as with guns, improper use can lead to catastrophic injury or death.
Airbag Defects Can Affect Us All
- Millions of U.S. vehicles are subjects to recalls every year due to safety defects that often include serious airbag problems
- Counterfeit airbags have consistently failed, from non-deployment to the exploding shrapnel that hits passengers and drivers
Are you a victim and want to file a lawsuit?
Before claiming a defective airbag, keep in mind that air bags do not and should not deploy in every crash. An air bag SHOULD NOT go off if: 1) the crash may be moderate enough that an air bag is not needed to protect the occupant wearing a seat belt; or 2) the passenger does not weigh enough to justify the airbag’s use (child or no front passenger)
Gokal Law Group, Inc. will fight against airbag manufacturers who knowingly put faulty and harmful equipment out on the roads. Our goal is to prevent injury or harm from ever happening again. The best way to ensure large airbag companies are building proper airbags is to hold them accountable when they hurt someone.
