Airbag Defect Lawyer
Airbags in Rollovers Often Fail
Often in a rollover accident the airbags fail to deploy or inflate. In fact in many rollovers, the frontal airbags in the steering wheel and the dash will not deploy unless there is sufficient frontal collision or deceleration at time of impact. Because of this fact, frontal airbags often do not protect the driver or passenger, therefore rollover airbags or side curtain airbags were invented. These rollover airbags are designed to deploy and inflate to keep the occupant inside the vehicle and not ejected or partially ejected in the rollover. Side impact or roof curtain airbags when working provide a cushion to lower the amounts of force to the head and upper torso. When airbags work as designed they save lives. When they are defective and fail to inflate properly, then serious injuries happen and lives are lost. If an airbag failed to protect you or a loved one in a rollover accident or any accident, then call and talk to a product liability trial lawyer with years of rollover, seatbelt and airbag experience. In every airbag injury lawsuit, airbag experts and engineers will study the facts and inspect the airbag, actuator or inflator device.
The airbag is perhaps the single biggest advance in automobile safety since the invention of the seatbelt. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) estimates that since they were first widely introduced in the 1970s, airbags have saved approximately 20,000 lives. However, airbags only work when they properly deploy. If they fail to function, or function improperly, they pose a serious risk to both drivers and passengers.
