Airbag Failures

There are few things as disruptive in one’s life as a serious motor vehicle accident. Depending upon the course of one’s day, he or she may spend hours behind the wheel of a car or truck and the whole time may be relying upon a vehicle’s safety features to protect against injury in the event of a collision. In an instant, though, that faith can prove misplaced as a defective or malfunctioning airbag causes or fails to prevent harm to a car’s occupants. There is no way to anticipate an airbag failure and thus a driver may be unable to brace himself against an impact or to otherwise reduce the severity of a crash.

If you were involved in an accident in which your vehicle’s airbag failed to properly function, it may be possible to obtain financial compensation through a civil lawsuit. Contact the Des Moines car accident lawyers of LaMarca Law Group, P.C., at (515) 705-0233 to speak with a skilled and experienced attorney about the potential merits of legal action in your case.

Possible Airbag Defects and Malfunctions

The successful function of an airbag system requires that a network of sensors, the car’s computer, and other deployment measures each work as intended. A failure at any point in the deployment process can result in a malfunction. A few of the representative airbag defects and malfunctions that could have endangered your safety are:

  • Premature deployment
  • Delayed deployment
  • Failure to deploy
  • Over-inflation
  • Under-inflation
