Beasley Allen attorney Mike Andrews discusses the dangers of airbags in automobiles

Today on the Beasley Allen Report, host Gibson Vance interviews fellow Beasley Allen attorney Mike Andrews about the dangers of airbags in automobiles.

Airbags are meant for safety but are often more dangerous than protective. Andrews dedicates his law practice to product liability cases, holding manufacturers responsible for products that cause injury or death. Andrews explains how airbags work and why they often cause injuries, using video reenactments and diagrams to illustrate his points. He also describes how recent technology shifts have improved certain problems with airbags by utilizing sensors to determine the size of the car occupant and deploying the airbag at a speed and force more suitable for the occupant.

Andrews believes that litigation has been the driving force behind improving automobile safety, and he encourages consumers to continue to force manufacturers to produce safer products. He tells consumers to visit the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration website, nhtsa.gov, to look for consumer reviews on their automobiles and stay up to date on recall information.
