Airbag Failure and Defects
Airbags may be the difference between life or death in an auto collision. If you have been injured by a defective airbag you are entitled to compensation.
The Takata Airbag Recall is the largest recall in history. It is estimated that the recall will impact 42 million vehicles. The reason this recall is so serious is because of the gruesome injuries and deaths that are caused by the defective airbags.
There is a metal canister that is connected to the airbag. This canister, which is called an inflator, contains a propellant. When a vehicle is in an auto accident, an algorithm is used to determine if the airbags should inflate or not. If it is determined that the airbags should “go off,” the inflator instantaneously inflates the airbags to protect the occupants in the vehicle.
In the defective Takata Airbags, the inflator ruptures as it inflates the airbag. Since the inflator is made of metal, as it explodes it sends metal shrapnel through the airbag and into the interior of the car. Oftentimes this results in the occupants of the vehicle sustaining serious injuries or even death.
Airbag issues typically stem from the deployment of the airbag. Other types of deployment issues include:
- Inadvertent Deployment
- Late Deployment
- Failure to Deploy
