Understanding Auto Accidents Find Out If You May Be Entitled to Compensation

Defective Airbags Lead to Serious Injury

Since head-on and side impact crashes are two of the most common types of wrecks that occur in Georgia and throughout the U.S., it's no wonder why airbags were invented. Airbags—front airbags and side airbags—were designed to help protect people in the event of a crash.

Airbags should deploy immediately after impact, as they are meant to open when the vehicle is in forward motion and rapidly decelerating. However, what if they don't? If an airbag never deploys or deploys when it isn't supposed to, it may not prevent injuries or fatalities in a serious car accident. Airbags were added to cars to help save lives, but there are numerous instances of defective airbag systems.

Defective Airbags

If airbags fail to deploy after a car crash, or if they deploy when they are not supposed to, they may add to the severity of injuries. In fact, serious injuries or death could result from an airbag not opening when it should. Airbags that fail to deploy have been associated with an alarming increase in injuries and fatalities in crashes.

Defective airbags are in vehicles everywhere, with many innocent drivers assuming they have airbags that will protect them in the event of a crash.

Sadly, these drivers won't learn that their airbags are defective until it is too late. If you or a loved one has been seriously injured or killed in a car accident due to a defective airbag, you may be entitled to financial compensation.

Contact a skilled personal injury lawyer to find out your rights. An experienced accident attorney will have the resources available to have your airbag system inspected and will fight for your rights to medical costs, rehabilitation, lost wages, and more.
