Airbag Injuries in Charleston

Airbag Injuries in Charleston

Airbags are truly a modern marvel, having saved countless lives since they were introduced over three decades ago. However, while airbag manufacturers continue developing more advanced systems featuring enhanced capabilities, they are far from perfect.

Airbags have been known to deploy inadvertently or incorrectly and have sequencing and sensor placement issues. 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.

Anyone injured because of a defective airbag has a right to seek compensation for their injuries. At Morgan & Morgan, we specialize in addressing airbag injuries in Charleston.

  • Defective Airbag Injuries

    Airbags are supplemental restraints found in all motor vehicle models produced since 1999, and they work in conjunction with seatbelts to provide added protection to drivers and passengers.

    An airbag consists of three main parts:

    • the airbag module
    • a diagnostic unit
    • a crash sensor

    When an airbag works correctly, it can save lives. However, airbags also come with serious risk and product liability concerns.

    Some of the most common ways in which an airbag may be deemed faulty or defective, causing injury to drivers and passengers, include:

    • Deploying when they shouldn’t: An airbag may deploy unexpectedly when it is not supposed to, often due to a malfunctioning crash sensor.
    • Failure to deploy: Sometimes, an airbag does not deploy in the event of an accident, often due to an electrical failure or short circuit.
    • Deploying with increased force: A properly deployed airbag will deploy with great force, but sometimes, due to poor construction, the force may be more than necessary.
    • Deploying too slowly: An airbag that deploys too slowly, usually because of an improper installation, can be as dangerous as an airbag that does not deploy at all.
