Airbag Malfunctions

Product Liability Attorneys: Air Bag Defects

Air bags are designed to protect us from injury in auto accidents; in the vast majority of cases they do. Air bags save thousands of lives in traffic accidents in the U.S. An air bag defect can turn this life-saving safety device into a mechanism that can injure, maim and kill.

At Hersh & Hersh, we represent clients who have suffered injury because of air bags that failed to deploy, deployed too late or deployed with too much force. If a defective air bag injured you or a loved one, please contact our office today. We offer a free consultation to discuss your case and review your legal rights.

Overly forceful deployment of air bags can lead to serious injuries, including:

  • Brain hemorrhage
  • Spinal injury
  • Broken facial bones
  • Heart problems
  • Chest injury
  • Eye injuries
  • Blindness
  • Hearing loss
  • Broken arms, wrists and fingers

Air bags are especially dangerous to children and people 5'2" and shorter. Children should not be seated in the front seat of a vehicle equipped with dual front air bags. Drivers should maintain a distance of at least 10 inches between the steering wheel and their chest.

When Air Bags Fail

Of course, late deployment and failure to deploy can subject a crash victim to serious head injury, brain injury, spinal cord injury, multiple fractures and internal injuries.

Hersh & Hersh seek financial compensation for clients who were injured by air bag defects. Additionally, our litigation encourages car manufacturers to produce safer air bag systems and to repair or recall vehicles with defective air bags.

From our offices in San Francisco, California, the lawyers of Hersh & Hersh represent people injured by air bag defects nationwide.
