Stevens Point Defective Airbags Attorney

Once, people did not wear seatbelts or have airbags in their vehicles. However, these safety devices have been proven to greatly increase survival rates in car accidents. In fact, airbags have decreased fatalities by an estimated 10% compared to seat belts alone. Unfortunately, if airbags malfunction, they can actually inflict or enable serious injuries to occur, even in the absence of a collision.

Airbags can cause injuries and even death if they fail to open, deploy randomly, or explode with too much force. If you have suffered due to this hazardous auto defect, you may be able to file a civil lawsuit against a negligent manufacturer. To discuss your case, contact an experienced Stevens Point defective airbag lawyer from Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. ®, at 800-242-2874.

Types of Airbag Defects

Because airbags are generally safe and effective, they are often installed in the steering wheel, dashboard, and even as “side curtains” along passenger windows. While these typically do help in an accident, there are three main airbag malfunctions which can cause harm to a driver and passengers. These problems include:

  • Exploding randomly – corroded wires, sensor defects, and other flaws can make an airbag deploy even when you do not hit anything
  • Failure to deploy – disconnected wires, malfunctioning sensors, and wire defects may prevent an airbag from deploying when you need it the most
  • Deploying with excessive force – improperly loaded inflation cartridges can cause the airbag to explode too strong, leading to facial trauma and collapsed lungs

Additionally, studies have shown that airbags can kill children and small adults in the front passenger seat even if they deploy regularly.
