Lawyers Serving Those Injured by Air Bag Defects in Illinois
It is indisputable that air bags have saved many lives since becoming standard equipment in many vehicles. It is also clear that they can have critical defects and contribute to severe injuries or death when they malfunction. Millions of vehicles have been recalled for known air bag problems by auto manufacturers including GM, Ford, Nissan, Hyundai, Toyota and others.
Please contact our Naperville-based air bag injury lawyers as soon as possible after a serious roadway accident in the greater Chicago area — whether air bags deployed or not. We are committed to thorough investigation of the car, truck and van accident claims we pursue. If we find any reason to suspect that an air bag defect worsened the outcome of an accident that harmed you or a family member, our attorneys will strive to find all evidence relevant to your case.
Air Bag Failures, Including Failure to Work or Suddenly Deploying
Documented air bag defects have taken many forms and caused a wide range of catastrophic injuries. Successful legal actions have addressed:
- Sensor problems and other electronic component failures that cause the air bag to deploy without impact — or fail to deploy in a violent auto crash
- Other air bag design defects that cause brain injuries and other catastrophic injuries from impact, crush injuries or burn injuries
- Failure to provide adequate warnings to help people avoid air bag injury or wrongful death
At the Law Offices of Mathys & Schneid, we maintain dependable resources for recovering and analyzing “black box data” available in most late-model and commercial vehicles. This information almost always sheds light on air bag deployment or failure, as well as the forces and velocities at play in the crash. In addition, we track and research other recorded cases involving similar vehicles and known air bag defects or recalls.
