At Rheingold, Valet, Rheingold, Ruffo & Giuffra LLP, we help people who have been injured due to defective auto parts, including those who have been injured or have lost loved ones due to defective air bags and seat belts.
There are a number of ways in which defective restraints can contribute to serious car accident injuries:
- Defective seat belts: Seat belts can fail to lock up or spool out improperly, failing to protect the people who are wearing them.
- Defective air bags: Some air bag injuries occur due the failure of the air bag to deploy, while many people are injured by air bags deploying when they are not needed.
- Lap belts: Children and adults strapped into backseat lap belts are prone to suffer serious injuries in an auto collision.
