While the list may continue to grow, there are an estimated 34 million vehicles may be subject to recall for driver’s side or passenger airbags that may not work properly.

What could happen if I have an accident and my airbags are defective?

Our airbag attorneys represent several victims injured by defective airbags. Some of the possible things that could happen with a defective airbag include:

Honda Civic airbag rupture

  • Airbag deploys with so much force that the inflator explodes and shoots pieces of metal through the airbag itself into the driver and passenger occupant area

  • Airbag deploys with such great force that it causes the driver or passenger’s clothes to catch on fire

  • Airbag deploys and catches on fire, causing burns and injuries to the driver or passenger

  • Airbag does not rupture, but deploys with such great force that it causes far greater injuries than a normal airbag deployment should cause

  • Airbag fails to deploy

What types of injuries could someone have from a defective airbag?

If an airbag failed to deploy, deployed with excessive force, or shot shrapnel at the driver or passenger, some of the injuries could include:

  • Driver killed from metal flying through airbag

  • Driver stabbed in neck from airbag canister metal

  • Driver’s shirt catches on fire from speed of airbag deployment

  • Passenger struck by pieces of metal from airbag canister

  • Passenger burned by fire from airbag

  • Driver or passenger struck by metal flying through airbag

  • Driver or passenger killed because the airbag did not deploy

What should I do if I was in a car accident and my car is listed on the recall list?

Call us as soon as possible to evaluate your possible claim. You can reach an airbag lawyer at our office at 800-337-7755, even after hours.

How long do I have to make an airbag claim?

Depending on the model of the vehicle and where the accident occurred, you may have as little as one year or as much as several years. If you had a car accident with possible shrapnel injuries, you can still contact us to see if you may have an airbag claim, even if the accident was more than 3 years ago.
