Common Airbag Defects and Injuries
Automobile manufacturers are required to thoroughly test vehicles for airbag safety. When they neglect to do so, they put innocent lives in jeopardy. If an airbag fails to deploy, deploys without warning, or is defective in any way, you may suffer serious injuries, such as:
- Airbag burns
- Broken bones (particularly facial bones and ribs)
- Internal bleeding
- Hearing or vision loss
- Traumatic brain injuries
These injuries can be very serious and may require extensive medical attention. You don’t have to go through this time alone. Get in touch with a skilled personal injury attorney today who can help assess your situation.
Airbags are intended to protect you in the event of an accident, and, when they don’t, you need to hold the manufacturer responsible. To get the support of a knowledgeable legal professional, contact the San Diego airbag defect lawyers of Ritter & Associates today at (619) 296-0123.
