Air Bag Defects Checklist

Check to see if:

  1. Airbag failed to deploy when it should have; or
    • Identify the location of airbags in the vehicle and the circumstances under which they should deploy.
  2. Airbag deployed and caused injury (Inflation Induced Injuries).

If either of the factors is present in your crash, and you have someone who sustained serious injury or death, retain an expert qualified in the field immediately. Preserve and document the evidence, including the Event Data Recorder / SDM / “Black Box.”

Remember to move quickly on the evidence! Always take immediate steps to preserve the vehicle and any evidence at the scene of the crash. This information could prove to be critical to your case. Don’t waste time getting information from the occupants and any witnesses to the crash.
