All new cars sold in the United States (and many developed countries) now have airbags. These devices decrease the incidence of fatal and serious injuries in front-end collisions. Quite a few vehicles now have side airbags as well, adding passenger protection during airbags should deploy in single vehicle accidents where the driver hits a fixed object and collisions with other vehicles.
Unfortunately, it seems that these life-saving devices do not always work as designed. In fact, defective airbags fail to protect many drivers and their passengers or injure people when they deploy during a vehicle accident. If a defective airbag causes an injury to you and your loved ones, you need to talk to a personal injury attorney immediately.
