Could your injury have been the result of Air Bag Failure?
If you have been injured in an automobile accident and feel the cause of your injury is due to air bag failure, then you have the right to pursue compensation for your injuries and The Haymond Law Firm can help.
Every year, the auto industry issues warnings and recalls due to air bag defects and component failures. Although thousands of vehicles are recalled each year, unfortunately its often times too late and individuals have already been injured or lost their lives. That’s why having a qualified defective air bag attorney on your side is crucial.
There are many facts that we, as the general public do not understand, that can be discovered by having a thorough investigation of the incident. Not only is it important to receive compensation for your injuries, but it’s important to bring forward an air bag failure case against the auto manufacturer at fault. Auto manufacturers at fault should have financial repercussions in order to make their products more safe for the consumer.

What are some of the common causes of defective air bags that may determine if you need an air bag failure lawyer to pursue a case?
Failure to Deploy: Front and side air bags are meant to deploy when a substantial collision has occurred. On occasion, one or both of the front or side air bags may fail to deploy on impact. When this occurs as a result of a design or manufacturing defect, the victim can suffer serious injuries by impacting with the steering wheel, windshield or other part of the vehicle and may be entitled to compensation.
Late Deployment: If an air bag deploys late, the vehicle occupant may suffer even more severe injuries than they would have had the air bag deployed immediately on impact. There are certain clues that may suggest such late deployment has occurred, such as a bent steering wheel, deformed air bag module cover, or the individual’s contact marks appearing on the steering wheel.
Overpowering Deployment: Air bags from the early-generation have been known for deploying too forcefully. Someone injured from an overpowered air bag can receive catastrophic and even fatal injuries.
Inadvertent Deployment: There have been instances where a vehicle’s air bag deploys in a very minor impact or when there is no crash at all. In this type of situation, the deployed air bag can cause injuries that could have been avoided if the air bag was working properly.
