Types of Airbag Defects

Today’s vehicles are required to be built with airbags. Many have front and side impact airbags, and these can protect a driver and passengers from suffering serious harm in an auto accident. Even certain motorcycles come equipped with airbags. If these do not function properly, however, their entire purpose is for naught.

The following are examples of potentially dangerous airbag defects:

  • Failure to inflate
  • Late airbag deployment
  • Unnecessary airbag deployment
  • Airbag rupture

Such defects can cause traumatic brain injuries, broken bones, facial trauma, lacerations, and even death.
