Madison Defective Airbag Lawyers
Drivers rely on certain car safety features to work correctly without personally testing them. After all, no one wants to test the efficiency of their front crumple zone to see how well it reduces shock. Similarly, personally testing an airbag before an accident is simply not feasible. This lack of testing equates to an inherent trust in the manufacturers and car assemblers to have appropriately done their job. However, there are certain situations in which an airbag may be defective or malfunction, posing a significant threat to drivers.
If you or your family has suffered because of an airbag failure or unexpected deployment, another party’s negligence may be to blame. Contact the Madison defective airbag lawyers of Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. ® by calling 800-242-2874 to learn more about your legal options as an injury victim.
Types of Airbag Defects
Car owners have to face some uncertainties every time they get into their vehicles. However, the hope is that these issues will not become safety concerns. A defective airbag, if failing the driver or front-seat passenger, can cause injuries to the face, neck, or upper chest.
The following is a partial list of potential airbag defects:
- Failure to deploy
- Improper or early deployment
- Improper installation
- Poor manufacturing
These problems can lead to a wide range of injuries. Broken noses, arms, fingers, necks, and shoulders are commonly caused by defective airbags. In addition to these injuries, brain and head trauma can occur, whether from whiplash or from a concussion.
If you have been injured by a malfunctioning or poorly made airbag, you may be entitled to pursue legal action against the parties responsible for this negligence. Contact the auto defect attorneys of Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. ® at 800-242-2874 for more information.
