Phoenix Airbag Accident Lawyer

Our airbag accident lawyer in Phoenix, AZ, knows that many people may have heard of injuries from airbags, but many never really give it a second thought. That is until they have been in an accident that has resulted in damages from an airbag. The truth is, injuries from airbags are pretty common, and depending upon the nature of the accident, legal action with the help of Saavedra Law Firm, PLC, may be necessary. If you believe someone else was at fault for the accident or your injuries were sustained from a defective airbag, calling our firm for a consultation is a perfect place to pursue your case. 

Airbag Accidents

Airbags are safety devices that come standard in vehicles. When an accident occurs, these airbags are deployed in an effort to soften the blow when faced with a collision, thus avoiding severe injuries. Injuries may result when an airbag deploys correctly, fails to do its job, or is defective, and damages may be substantial. Common types of injuries from airbags include:

  • Head Injuries
  • Lacerations
  • Spinal Injuries
  • Broken Bones
  • Whiplash
  • +More

These injuries can be utterly devastating and, in some cases, fatal. Medical care will likely be imperative to ensuring injuries are appropriately treated. 

Defective Airbags

While airbags are integral to safety when a collision occurs, when an airbag malfunctions, our Phoenix, Arizona, accident lawyer can share that victims may have the opportunity to take legal action against the party responsible. Common airbag problems include:

  • Chemical agents released at deployment causing injuries
  • Airbags not inflating or inflating too quickly
  • An airbag was previously deployed- unbeknownst to the vehicle owner
  • Airbags were turned off at the time of the crash
  • Airbag sensors didn’t work correctly
  • Airbags that exploded

If you or a loved one has suffered damages in an accident involving a defective airbag, you could be facing more than one responsible party. 

About Airbags

Ever since 1951, airbags have been used to save the lives of vehicle occupants. While they weren’t universally implemented until decades after their invention, airbags are still an important component of a car’s safety system. 

In the event of a collision, airbags are meant to deploy and prevent the occupants from hitting objects in a car’s interior that could cause added injury. A more well-known example is the steering wheel: Rather than letting your head impact the hard steering wheel in a car accident, an airbag will rapidly inflate outwards, providing you with a soft cushion while also preventing whiplash.

Airbags work in tandem with other safety features, most notably seatbelts. With these safety measures in place, you should feel confident that you’ll be protected from severe injury in most car accidents. If your seatbelts and airbags work properly, you should be kept safe from whiplash and blunt force trauma when you experience a car accident.

However, airbags aren’t completely perfect – sadly, nothing ever is, even automotive safety equipment. If an airbag is faulty, the driver and passengers in a car can experience serious injury or death. Without airbags, the occupants of a car are vulnerable to the other objects inside a vehicle: the steering wheel, the dashboard, and (in cars with back seats) the backrests of the front seats, to name a few. Airbags are meant to save lives, but they aren’t foolproof. In fact, millions of airbags have been recalled due to factory defects and widespread failure to deploy.

How Can an Airbag Injury Lawyer Help Me?

If you’ve been involved in a car accident and suspect your airbags were defective, an experienced airbag injury lawyer can help. Airbag injury lawyers can properly investigate your case to determine whether your airbags are to blame for your injuries, and they can also determine if any other parties can be held accountable for your injuries. 

A car accident can be a painful and costly ordeal, and insurance companies might be hesitant to pay you the amount you deserve in a timely fashion. Fortunately, if you contact an airbag injury lawyer, they can also negotiate with your insurance to secure the most compensation possible for your claim – and they can make sure you aren’t kept waiting, either. An airbag injury lawyer is a valuable ally to have in your corner, and because no two cases are alike, they can walk you through the legal processes surrounding your case.
