The air bag has been an incredible safety device and has undoubtedly saved thousands of lives since its invention; however, it can also be a killer. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA)
reports that since 1990, air bag deployment has killed 227 people in low-severity crashes, including 76 drivers, 10 adult passengers, 119 children between the ages of 1 and 11, and 22 infants. What this means is that in these cases, air bags were the cause of their deaths and they would have lived if the air bag has not deployed.
Some of the problems with air bags include:
- Lack of air bags - the manufacturer's failure to install air bags in the vehicle
- Failure of installed air bags to deploy or to deploy properly
- Air bag deployment in low severity crashes that cause injury or death
The later is the most common form of air bag liability cases and can involve a defect in the air bag design, a defect in the manufacture of the air bag, or the manufacturer's failure to include appropriate instructions or warnings regarding the use of the air bag. These can cause, for example, the driver or passenger to fail to use their seat belts or to fail to position themselves appropriately for a possible air bag deployment.
