Determining Fault After an Airbag Injury

Determining fault after an airbag injury can be a complex process as it involves a thorough investigation and analysis of various factors. The first step is to ascertain whether the airbag functioned as it was supposed to or if there was a malfunction. If the airbag was not deployed or deployed inappropriately, it could be a manufacturing defect, indicating that the vehicle manufacturer or the airbag manufacturer could be at fault. In such cases, it may be necessary to hire an expert to examine the vehicle and airbag system to provide an opinion on the cause of the malfunction.

On the other hand, if the airbag functioned correctly but the injury was caused due to the impact of the airbag, the fault could lie with the other driver involved in the accident, if there was one. In this scenario, it would be necessary to prove that the other driver’s negligence caused the accident, leading to the airbag deployment and subsequent injury. This would typically involve gathering evidence from the accident scene, witness statements, and police reports. It’s crucial to consult with a personal injury lawyer who can guide you through this process and help establish liability.
