Call a Defective Airbag Attorney if You’ve Been Injured
An airbag is a device placed within the interior of a motor vehicle intended to protect the driver and passengers from extreme injury when involved in a motor vehicle accident. Gas-inflated cushions are built into the dashboard, steering wheel, door, seat or roof of a car that evacuate their barriers in order to protect the driver and passengers from impact of an automotive accident. Airbags are designed to evacuate when a vehicle decelerates quickly or at the impact of a crash. Sometimes things go wrong and you may need a defective airbag attorney.
Automotive airbags were invented in the 1950’s, however they were not placed into conventional vehicles until 1980. It took almost thirty years to perfect and establish airbags and still there are unfortunate and extremely unnecessary accidents concerning their deficiency. There are many occasions in which installed airbags in a motor vehicle will not operate as intended.
Airbags can sometimes go off at the wrong time or fail to go off at the impact of a crash. This can result in serious injury that could have been prevented. Faulty airbags that evacuate unnecessarily can injure the driver and passengers, while airbags that do not go off when intended can result in unnecessary injury. There have been many cases when a certain vehicle model will be recalled due to defective airbags. Within a three month period in the year 2007 alone, BMW, Dodge and Hyundai each recalled certain vehicle models because of defective airbags. There are no guarantees when it comes to safety features in motor vehicles, but this does not mean that you do not have a claim when it comes to defective airbags.
Compensation due to unnecessary injury resulting from an airbag is best sought through an experienced defective airbag attorney such as those at Salcido Law Firm. You can reach us anytime by phone at 801.413.1753 or by email.
