Airbag Injuries in Atlanta
There is no doubt that airbags have saved countless lives since they were first introduced. That’s because this important safety feature inflates rapidly to cushion the body and absorb the force that is experienced during the sudden impact of a car accident. Airbags minimize serious injury risk by acting as a buffer between a car’s occupants and the windshield, dashboard, and steering wheel.
However, like any other product, airbags are not infallible. If defective, an airbag may explode without warning or fail to deploy as expected. Even a fully functioning airbag can cause bone fractures, internal organ damage, and other injuries. One recent example of a defective airbag taken off the market in a recall is the Takata airbag, which, according to the National Highway Traffic and Safety Administration, has caused serious injury and death.
If you have airbag injuries in Atlanta, an attorney from Morgan & Morgan can help determine who might be responsible and help you seek compensation for your injuries.

Product Liability Claims for Defective Airbags
Sometimes, the federal government or an airbag manufacturer voluntarily recalls a defective airbag. However, there are many vehicles that may contain faulty airbags without anyone realizing it. If one of these defective airbags causes injury, victims have certain rights according to product liability laws.
Generally, there are three ways in which a victim can hold an airbag producer responsible for their defective product:
- Strict Liability: Using the concept of strict liability, the plaintiff’s attorney must prove that the airbag was unreasonably dangerous and, therefore, caused injury.
- Negligence: In a negligence case, the plaintiff’s attorney will present evidence showing that the airbag maker or some other party failed to take reasonable precautions to ensure the safety of the airbag.
Breach of Warranty: A car and its components often come with warranties, either implied or expressed. Sometimes, the defective airbag and the injuries it causes can lead to a breach of warranty claim.
