What Are Common Air Bag Defects?

Manufacturers of air bag systems have the duty to release safe products to the public. This means implementing well-thought-out designs and extensive testing to ensure that the airbags serve their primary function: preventing injuries. Air bag systems with shoddy designs can be dangerous, especially for children. Our firm is not afraid to take on auto manufacturers responsible for the following air bag defects:

  • Faulty Crash Sensors: Defective signals can cause air bags to inflate when unnecessary or after it is too late.
  • Wrong Inflation Path: Air bags are supposed to inflate upwards before extending outwards. Those that inflate horizontally can be dangerous.
  • Excessive Expansion Size or Force: Air bags that deploy with excessive size or force can cause traumatic head damage.
  • Lack of Internal Tethers: Tether straps help shape air bags in a flat pillow shape and not a rotund ball shape, which can be harmful to passengers.
