In the past 15 years, over 225 people have died as the result of airbag related injuries. Vehicle airbags were created and designed to provide drivers, and in some cases, the passengers of motor vehicles with protection in the event of a car accident. Front and side airbags are supposed to inflate when the vehicle is struck or hits an object with force, therefore preventing the driver and vehicle occupants from hitting their heads on the dash board or other hard surfaces. Although this safety feature is supposed to prevent injuries, there are many cases each year of people suffering serious airbag related injuries. These injuries have resulted in auto manufacturers placing warnings on the automobiles to inform consumers of the hazards that are associated with airbags. If you or a loved one has been the victim of a serious airbag related injury in Northern California, please contact Gillin, Jacobson, Ellis, Larsen & Lucey to discuss your case with an experienced personal injury lawyer.
There are many causes in which an innocent person may become the victim of an airbag injury, such as an airbag being defective, an airbag failing to inflate during an accident, and an airbag deflating when an accident does not take place. People of all ages are at risk for airbag injuries, but smaller adults and children are likely to suffer very severe injuries because airbags were designed for average size adults weighing approximately one hundred eighty pounds and measuring about five foot eight.
