What Happens If My Airbag Didn’t Deploy?
Q: I was involved in a car accident and my airbag did not deploy. May I sue the manufacturer?
A: Airbag cases are complicated. You must prove not only that the circumstances were such that the airbag should have deployed, but also that you sustained injuries that you would not otherwise have incurred but for the airbag’s failure. Needless to say there are substantial expenses involved in establishing the foregoing. For this reason airbag claims are generally pursued as a last resort, particularly if another driver with sufficient auto liability coverage was at fault for the crash.
