Waukesha Defective Airbag Attorneys
When motorists step into their cars, they make certain assumptions about the vehicle. Drivers assume that their car is in working order, trusting their brakes, seat belts, and air bags to help them in the event of a traffic collision. Unfortunately, these safety features sometimes fail to perform as intended, placing a vehicle’s occupants in danger. While a driver can pull on a seat belt to check whether or not it is working and can pump their brakes to check their quality, air bags cannot safely be tested by the consumer. Instead, they must assume that these devices will deploy in case of an emergency.

Problems with Air Bags
Accidents involving air bags are especially damaging in part because of the deployment speed of the bag, and in part because the area the bag is supposed to protect involves the chest, neck, and head. This can lead to broken bones, brain damage, and damage to the eyes and ears. Consider the following injuries that may be associated with a defective airbag:
- broken neck
- broken nose
- broken arms, shoulders, and fingers
- concussion or brain damage
- eye damage
- ear damage
These can occur from either an accident in which an airbag fails to deploy or from improper deployment, such as in a system malfunction.
If you have been injured by an airbag, negligence on behalf of the manufacturer could be to blame. Contact the Waukesha defective airbag lawyers of Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. ®, by calling 800-242-2874 today.
