Airbag Injuries in Los Angeles
Today’s vehicles have many important safety features designed to minimize the severity of car accident injuries. However, some safety features are not as effective as promised and, in some cases, aren’t even functional. One prime example of such a safety feature is the airbag.
Every day, the government or an automobile manufacturer seems to recall one of its safety features after a defect is discovered. Take, for example, the recently recalled Takata airbag, which, according to the National Highway Traffic and Safety Administration, has caused at least 27 deaths and injured as many as 400 people.
When it comes to defective safety features, none are more dangerous than a malfunctioning airbag, which can be just as dangerous as having no airbag at all. Even when airbags do deploy properly, they can cause serious injury. At Morgan & Morgan, we have experience in helping secure compensation for vehicle drivers and passengers who have suffered airbag injuries in Los Angeles.

Common Causes of Airbag Injuries in Los Angeles
There is no question that airbags save lives and reduce injuries for those involved in car accidents. However, an airbag's design, manufacture, and installation are complicated, and even the smallest flaw or miscalculation can have catastrophic results.
Here are some of the most common airbag malfunctions that can result in serious injury or even death:
- failure to deploy
- deploying with excessive force
- low-impact deployment
- rips and tears that release harmful chemicals
- improper installation
- mislabeled airbags
- counterfeit airbags
When determining the root cause of the airbag failure, there are many factors to consider, including:
- seat position
- position and weight of the vehicle occupant
- sensor system failure
- manufacturer design
- inflation volume
- airbag folding
- chemicals and materials contained inside the airbag
- deployment angle
- deployment rate
- post-deployment venting
