Helping South Florida Residents Seek Legal Compensation
Airbags are designed to give drivers additional protection in auto accidents, and most of the time, these airbags operate as intended. That being said, if an airbag has a defect, it can cause severe injuries or even death.
These airbag malfunctions can be caused by a design or manufacturing flaw or can be assembled or installed improperly by the car company or a mechanic. An airbag malfunction can also be caused by many other things, such as software problems, outdated technology, lack of crash sensors and more. If one or more of these defects exists, it is probable that your airbag will either deploy at the wrong time or fail to deploy at all.
As a driver, you can take certain measures to reduce your risk of airbag injury, such as being aware of airbag recall or airbag replacement notices, ensuring all passengers are appropriately restrained, having children sit in the backseat in appropriate car or booster seats and just being aware of general auto safety. Despite this, there are events where you or a family member was injured when the airbag in your vehicle deployed at the incorrect time. It is also a possibility that your airbag failed to deploy, or some other airbag malfunction occurred. Please reach out to our Fort Lauderdale personal injury office today.
