Airbags are designed to save lives during auto accidents – a task at which they are often successful. However, airbag defects before, during, and after an accident can actually serve to cause or exacerbate an injury. In some cases, these defects can even result in death.
If you have been injured or a loved one has been killed by an airbag defect, please contact The Cochran Firm online or by calling (800) 843-3476 today.
One of the largest threats posed by airbags is unnecessary deployment. This singular issue is behind a number of defective vehicle recalls and has been a suspected factor in thousands of serious and fatal injuries.
Unnecessary airbag deployment may actually cause an accident by obstructing a driver’s vision. This defect can also result in:
- Brain injury
- Broken bones
- Chest and back injury
- Spinal cord injury
Who is Liable?
When these injuries are the result of a defective airbag, you are entitled to hold the manufacturer accountable and seek compensation for all of your damages. The product liability attorneys at The Cochran Firm are here to take your case and help you secure the total compensation you are due.
Who is Liable?
Airbags are typically manufactured by third-party companies and simply installed by the auto manufacturer. However, when they are defective, both the auto and airbag manufacturers may be liable. This is something that will need to be determined during the investigative portion of your claim.
The personal injury attorneys at The Cochran Firm have access to a comprehensive network of industry experts and legal professionals who combine skills to uncover all liable parties. We take time to fully investigate accidents, identify negligent parties, and build solid cases for our clients – allowing us to seek compensation for the full extent of damages.
