Our firm sees too many situations where people have been killed or badly injured in “airbag cases.” Airbag injuries are sometimes caused from the failure to provide airbags in vehicles. A tremendous amount of press has recently been focused on side impacts involving light trucks and passenger cars. In these accidents, the near-sided occupant is exposed to injury from the striking high bumper vehicles. The vehicle manufacturers have known for at least a decade that these injuries could be minimized or prevented with the use of side airbags. In particular, the use of torso, head, and curtain type airbags would minimize or prevent many of the side impact injuries. In addition, manufacturers, such as Volvo and Mercedes have incorporated rollover type airbags to minimize head and neck injuries in rollover collisions.
