Airbag Injury Lawsuit Lawyers


December 22, 2022

Airbags were developed to provide personal protection during car accidents. It is estimated that more than 50,000 lives have been saved from airbags over the past thirty years. However, several million defective airbags have been placed into vehicles throughout the United States. These airbags are causing life-threatening injuries to the face and neck of front-seat passengers and drivers.

The potentially deadly issues involve deployment with too much force, airbag malfunctions, or exploding shrapnel incidents that cause severe facial and neck injuries to vehicle occupants. At Montlick Injury Attorneys, our team of legal professionals fights hard to recover monetary compensation on behalf of our clients who have been harmed or lost a loved one due to a defective product, such as defective airbags.

Although the federal government has been working hard to pass better safety standards for automobiles, millions of defective Takata airbags were placed in dozens of makes and models of cars, trucks, SUVs, and vans. As a result, Takata announced the largest auto recall in U.S. history. Takata's faulty airbag systems have been linked to injuries, deaths, and severe scarring. If you or a member of your family were harmed due to a collision or an airbag malfunction, call Montlick Injury Attorneys for your free consultation with one of our airbag injury lawyers. Our firm may be able to help you hold the manufacturers financially responsible for your injuries and damages. 

Airbags malfunctions occur in many different ways, including:

  • Exploding airbags propel metal shrapnel into the face of occupants.
  • Airbags fail to deploy during an accident resulting in injuries.
  • Airbags suddenly deploy without any crash, causing injuries. 
  • Faulty sensors prevent the proper timing of deployment, causing injuries.
  • Airbags inflate with too much force.

The National Highway Transportation Safety Administration estimates that nearly 300 vehicle occupants were tragically killed by faulty airbags that were deployed during low-impact crashes. The Takata airbag recall involves approximately 67 million airbags. The National Highway Transportation Safety Administration stated that defective Takata airbag inflators could force airbags to deploy too slowly or rupture. When the airbag propellant causes the airbag's inflator to rupture, causing it to "explode," propelling shrapnel into the face of the driver and/or front seat passenger. Front seat occupants, particularly smaller adults and children, often experience life-threatening injuries or death caused by the exploding airbag's defective inflators.

If you or a member of your family suffered injury or the loss of a loved one due to an accident, our knowledgeable auto accident attorneys could explain your legal rights and the strategy to those rights.
