Why Airbags Were Introduced
When airbags were first brought to the attention of the car-buying consumer in the 1980s, they were heralded as the tool that would greatly reduce deaths due to vehicular collisions. Designed to deploy upon impact, the few problems that were associated with airbags, such as broken noses or whiplash, were regarded as acceptable trade-offs for potentially saving a life.
Indeed, airbags have been instrumental in decreasing the number of serious injuries and deaths; however, there were some fundamental design problems that made airbags unreasonably dangerous in certain situations. For one, airbags were designed for individuals between 5-foot-8 and 5-foot-10 who weighed roughly 180 pounds. This caused issues for individuals who were shorter or taller, or who weighed more or less. Because of this, serious injuries, including blindness or eye ruptures, resulted.
Tragically, many consumers don’t realize that defective airbags can cause debilitating injuries or death until it is too late. In such cases, the defective airbag attorneys of our New York City law firm are here to help spread awareness of the dangers of defective products by filing a personal injury or wrongful death lawsuit on behalf of the victim or their family.
Hallmarks Of A Defective Airbag
So, how do you know if you or a loved one has been harmed by a defective airbag? There are a few tell-tale signs that an airbag did not work as it was supposed to during a collision. Chief indicators that the airbag may have been a defective product include:
In optimum situations, an airbag deploys with roughly 2,000 pounds of force at a rate of 200 mph, but in some cases, an airbag can deploy at an even greater rate and cause brain or spinal damage.
Airbags that deploy when a door slams, or during a low-speed car accident, can cause injury to unsuspecting motorists who were not bracing for the impact.
Airbags have to be able to deploy in a matter of milliseconds, which can mean the difference between life and death.
Any number of these things could indicate a problem with your car’s air bag safety system. When in doubt, contact the New York City defective airbag attorneys of Proner & Proner in NYC, serving Manhattan, Queens, Brooklyn, Staten Island, the Bronx, all of New York.
