The potential injuries that result from defective airbags

Before airbags were installed in most cars, people involved in car accidents would have a greater chance of sustaining severe injuries. 

While airbags have been a safety breakthrough for cars, they also have led to their own types of injuries. Due to the design and possible defections with the airbag, people can be injured when the airbag is released. 

These injuries can include head injuries, burns injuries, and broken bones. In some cases, if the airbag has a defect, then the injured party may be able to recover damages from the airbag manufacturer. 

If you have been involved in a car accident and were injured by a defective airbag, contact the Iowa car accident attorneys of LaMarca Law Group, P.C., at 877-327-2600.
