Riverside Airbag Injury Lawyer
Speak with a Riverside airbag injury attorney who can help you seek compensation for your injuries.
When you’re involved in a motor vehicle accident, you are relying on your airbags to protect you and your passengers. So what happens when it’s the airbag that has caused your injury? Who covers the costs of your losses then?
At Dickson Kohan & Bablove, LLP, we are committed to holding irresponsible and negligent manufacturers accountable for the damages their faulty airbags cause. You don’t have to face a large corporation alone. We’ll handle the litigation process so you can dedicate your time to your recovery.
What Happens When an Airbag Malfunctions
An airbag is designed to inflate in an attempt to cushion your impact with the dashboard when your vehicle is in an accident. Without an airbag, a car collision can cause whiplash, spinal cord injuries, traumatic brain injuries, and death.
When an airbag malfunctions, something causes the airbag to either not deploy at all or explode with excessive force, which often results in injuries far more serious than those sustained in a typical motor vehicle accident.
One of the more common airbag failures occurs when airbags rupture and propel debris throughout the vehicle, as seen in the recent Takata airbag scandal, in which the manufacturer led consumers to believe its airbags were safe when they were not. Airbags can also inflate accidentally during your normal travels, which then causes an accident.
Fault in Riverside Defective Airbag Injury Cases
The manufacturer or installer of the airbag is nearly always at fault for defective airbag injuries in Riverside. This is because these parties have an obligation to ensure the safety of their product. When failure to do so can result in death, this duty should be of utmost importance.
As in the Takata airbag recall, the manufacturer of the faulty airbag will be held responsible for its product. If the company didn’t perform industry-standard safety checks on each airbag, ignored repeated reports of airbag malfunctions, or misled companies into using faulty airbags, it can be brought to justice in a Riverside product liability claim.
Manufacturers will not only be liable for the expenses of your injuries, but they will also have an obligation to replace your airbag with one that is not defective, supply you with a vehicle to use until they are able to replace your airbag, reimburse you for any maintenance related to the airbag deployment, and potentially compensate you for your emotional and mental suffering.
