If you are reading this article then you have probably been injured or killed as the result of a defective airbag. There are many different reasons that airbags can fail, for instance the wrong size, shape or configuration can cause the device to fail during a crash. Most airbags today are hardwired and this means that once the employer opens it there is a circuit that is opened and that opens up the pressure sensitive switch inside that deploys the airbag. The problem with most airbags today is that there are not enough pressure drops to actually deploy them correctly, this means that during a crash the bag will rupture and start to leak air which is potentially lethal in itself and can also kill whoever is in the car at the time. In the past the bags used to deploy by pulling the skin tight on your thigh, but this has proven to be a faulty design as these tears open the skin of the person inside.
There is no doubt that the design of faulty airbags was the main factor in causing this tragic loss of life and injury. But there are other factors that were involved, for example the size of the car, the size of the driver and how the car was driven. The size of the car was one that was particularly important because if other cars in the same area had airbags deployed they would have prevented fatalities. It is known today that many cars were actually fitted with airbags that were not suitable for them. Many drivers and passengers did not take account of this fact and only noticed when the car broke down shortly afterwards that they were actually injured and some even died. There have been numerous car manufacturers that have since been found to be in possession of defective airbags and in many cases have been ordered to pay compensation claims.
The biggest case that has resulted from a faulty airbags lawsuit is the much talked about k Dylan airbag recall. This is the largest recall in the history of airbags and also the most expensive. The original Doric airbag was replaced by a newer version manufactured by Kylan which was also defective. As a result of this recall, there were literally thousands of people that bought new Doric airbags and it meant that there were an extremely large number of potential hazards that could have been caused as a direct result of that single recall.
There is a very high likelihood that you may well be entitled to compensation if you suffer from injuries as a result of the original faulty airbag. If you are concerned that you may have been injured as a result of the original recalled airbag, you should find a qualified product liability lawyer that specialises in personal injury cases. The personal injury lawyer will look at all the facts and assess whether the complaint is valid. In the event that they can establish that there has been a breach of duty, negligence or breach of contract then they will apply the rules of negligence and product liability law. These are areas of law that relate to how companies that make products fail to protect their customers from harm when using those products.
If you win your lawsuit against Kylan and the other company involved in the defective airbags recall, you may be entitled to compensation for various injuries that you have suffered. These could include but are not limited to back pain, psychological injuries, loss of earnings and much more. It is important to note that if you have sustained any form of injury due to the airbag recall, you have the right to claim compensation from the manufacturer. It is also important to note that if the injury is due to the negligence of the company in question, they are legally obliged to compensate you for these injuries. However, there are cases where the manufacturer is not actually negligent but the company failed to take reasonable precautions with the manufacturing of the airbag.
When it comes to choosing a product liability lawyer, you should try to find someone that specialises in personal injury law as these will be the individuals that will be able to give you the advice you need to win your case. There are many different types of injuries that can arise in the course of using personal safety technology, such as faulty crash sensors or faulty airbags. It is also important to remember that if you have sustained an injury due to these products, then you have the right to claim monetary compensation against the manufacturer of these products.
