The installation of airbags is not optional for motor vehicle manufacturers. Since 1999, federal law has required them in any car sold in the United States. Unfortunately, while airbags can save lives, they do not always work as intended. So, if you were injured in a car accident after your airbags failed to deploy, you could have a viable claim against the manufacturer. With the help of a Los Angeles personal injury attorney at Salamati Law, you can seek justice from the manufacturer responsible for your injuries.
There are different ways that a manufacturer could breach the duty they owe to the public. This is true for defective airbags that do not deploy. These accidents could result in devastating injuries, especially from high speed accidents or drunk driving collisions.
The types of defects include:
If you were hurt due to defective airbags, your injuries might impact your life for many years, and you have the right to seek compensation.
Some of the damages you might be able to recover include:
Many people are not aware of the full amount of compensation injured victims are entitled to recover. For example, lost wages can also include sick days and vacation days. Our firm can work with you to ensure you receive the maximum amount of compensation–so that you can rebuild your life.
The injuries that can result from a failed airbag deployment can be devastating. This defect can render a relatively minor accident into a life-altering injury.
