Airbag Defect Lawyers

The airbag is perhaps the biggest advance in car safety since the invention of the seat belt. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) estimates that since they were first introduced in the 1970s, airbags have saved many lives. Unfortunately, airbags can only save lives if they properly deploy. An airbag's failure to deploy can cause serious risk to an occupant of a car. If an airbag fail to deploy in a rollover or other serious accident the injuries sustained in that accident can be catastrophic and even fatal. An airbag can also injure vehicle occupants if it explodes with too much force like the recently recalled Takata airbags have done. Our firm is handling the lawsuit that prompted GM to recall the 2013-2014 Chevy Cruze for exploding airbags that shoot metal shrapnel into the vehicle.
