Cincinnati Airbag Defects Lawyers
Airbags are now a standard safety feature in all vehicles sold in the United States. In addition to a driver airbag, vehicle manufacturers have started including airbags for the front passenger seat, as well as side airbags to cushion drivers and passengers involved in a crash. While airbags have helped to cushion the impact of many collisions and save lives, they can also be a danger if they do not operate properly. Airbag defects can cause severe injury to drivers and passengers alike.
If you or someone you know has been hurt by a defective airbag, you may have grounds for legal action. Contact the experienced Cincinnati injury attorney at Stepleton Dugan, LLC today at 513-321-7733.
Causes of Airbag Injuries
- Airbag inflates too early or too late
- Airbag fails to fully inflate
- A defective sensor causes the bag to not deploy upon collision
- The bag deploys with too much or too little force
- A defective mechanism causes the bag to deploy when there has been no collision
Any of these defects can be a dangerous error that causes severe injury. A bag that deploys at the wrong time is especially dangerous, because it could startle a driver and obstruct his or her view, possibly causing an accident itself. A severe accident can lead to painful injuries, high medical bills, lost wages from time off of work, recovery costs, and pain and suffering.
If your injuries were caused by an airbag defect, you have the right to pursue a civil lawsuit against the manufacturer to recover compensation for your injuries and damages. Our Cincinnati airbag defect attorneys may be able to help.
