An Issue that is Impacting Millions Upon Millions of Vehicles
In recent years, multiple recalls involving tens of millions of motor vehicles installed with TRW or Takata airbags have been issued by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), in response to numerous reports of the airbags deploying inadvertently (TRW), or rupturing in crashes and spraying metal shards throughout the passenger cabin (Takata). The defective airbags have already been linked to many injuries and even fatalities.
To find out whether a defective airbag played a part in your accident, visit the NHTSA website and use their Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) search system, or contact the manufacturer or dealer of your vehicle for information.
Other Types of Airbag Defects
Besides the aforementioned defects, there are other types of airbag defects which have the potential to cause dangerous accidents, including:
- Airbags that inflate horizontally rather than vertically;
- Overly powerful multi-force airbag inflators;
- Lack of tether straps that help make airbags safer by compressing them into flat pillow shapes;
- Airbags that have been inadequately tested by manufacturers.
To build a strong foundation for your defective airbag claim, you should hire a trusted Maryland auto product liability attorney who has keen investigatory skills and access to a network of accident reconstruction specialists and other relevant experts, along with the willingness to take your case to court if need be.
