Drivers Should Not Be Victims Of Faulty Safety Equipment
Air bag injuries are caused by a number of design and manufacturing defects. Common occurrences include air bags that deploy when they should not, air bags that fail to inflate or air bags that inflate too quickly or too slowly. All of these air bag problems lead to more severe injuries than would have happened had the air bag worked properly.
Seat belt defects allow the driver or passenger of a car to hit the dashboard or windshield. Another type of belt failure results in the occupant of the car being thrown from the vehicle during an accident. Problems with design or manufacture include weak or inappropriate webbing material, a belt that appears latched when it is not, and retractor devices that allow the occupant to move forward during an accident.
Both of these equipment problems can lead to serious injuries and even death.
