Defective Airbags Accident Attorneys in New York

Airbags are said to be one of the most important safety measures in decades. Occasionally, the energy required to quickly inflate airbags can cause injury to people sitting or thrown too close to the airbag before it deploys.

This was a serious concern with the first generations of frontal airbags, which deployed with greater force.

NHTSA estimates that during 1990-2008, more than 290 deaths were caused by frontal airbag inflation in low-speed crashes.
