Defective Airbag Attorney
Airbags are intended to serve as a safety device that prevents you from sustaining serious injury in a car crash. However, hundreds – if not more – people have been killed in the United States are a result of defective airbags. Upon impact, airbags are supposed to deploy and prevent the driver and/or passenger from coming into contact with hard surfaces, such as the dashboard, steering wheel, or windshield. Even though airbags were designed with safety in mind, there are many instances – especially in recent years – where airbags either fail to inflate or spray shrapnel upon inflation, injuring or killing vehicle occupants. Airbag malfunctions have resulted in fatalities and numerous serious injuries of the years, highlighting the need for us to raise awareness about this growing problem. Here at Rad Law Firm, our attorneys have experience working these types of product liability cases and have what it takes to represent you in court against the manufacturer of the airbag. We have offices conveniently located in Beverly Hills, CA as well as Austin, Houston, Dallas, Fort Worth, and Brownsville, TX and we are available to talk today for free.
Common Injuries Caused by Faulty Airbags
Many people do not realize this, but airbags can deploy at speeds exceeding 200 mph. For those involved in these types of accidents, this can be extremely traumatic and life-changing. Rather than preventing a person from sustaining injuries in car crashes, defective airbags can actually be the cause of a wide range of injuries, including the following:
- Severe lacerations, particularly of the face
- Skull fractures
- Broken facial bones
- Chemical burns
- Dental injuries
- Traumatic brain injuries
If you have been the victim of a defective airbag and has suffered any of the above injuries or others as a result, we encourage you to contact a product liability attorney from Rad Law Firm right away.

We’ve all become used to automobiles with front and side airbags. These airbags are intended to better protect your head and neck in the event of an accident, reducing the potential for injury. While we like to think that the number of injuries and deaths from faulty airbags is going down in newer cars, this isn’t necessarily the case. In order to prove that an airbag was defective or faulty, expert witnesses will be necessary to determine the failure of the airbag and how that failure worsened your injuries. This is difficult to do on your own, which is where we come in.
