New York City Defective Airbag Attorney
Filing A Product Liability Claim
There are risks that come along with almost every activity in our lives, and that includes getting behind the wheel of a car. Even if you’re just a passenger in the car, we trust our vehicles to keep us safe if we’re ever involved in a crash. One of the most important safety features in any car is the airbag, and it’s responsible for providing the necessary cushion that will keep your head from slamming into a hard surface. No matter what prevented them from working as intended, a defective airbag can result in serious injuries that require immediate medical attention and will lead to costly medical bills.
If you were injured because of a defective airbag, contact the NYC product liability attorneys at The Perecman Firm, P.L.L.C. today. Our lawyers have recovered more than half a billion dollars in verdicts and settlements for our clients over the past 40+ years, and are ready to fight to ensure that the product’s manufacturers are held accountable for their negligence.
What Can Go Wrong?
There are various reasons an airbag could fail to work as intended – the most recent example of this issue is the software issue in nearly 4.3 million General Motors vehicles that prevented their airbags from deploying at all. The company announced this recall on September 9 following months of testing to confirm the issue, and noted that 3.6 million of the vehicles were currently registered to motorists in the United States.
This recall came barely a year after the massive Takata airbag recall which affected about 34 million vehicles, the largest auto recall in United States history. These airbags ran the risk of exploding in the face of the person they were supposed to protect, sending a deadly blast of shrapnel flying in their direction. More than 100 injuries and at least three deaths were linked to this fault, and despite this it took months for the manufacturer to admit that there was any issue with their product.
