Defective Takata airbags can cause life-threatening injuries

| Serious Injuries, Automotive

While all airbags may seem helpful rather than harmful, they actually require an explosive charge to deploy at the quick speeds required during an accident, which can cause serious issues. Beasley Allen lawyer Kendal Dunson explains how the explosion can prove deadly if the occupant is too close to the airbag when it deploys, or in the case of Takata airbags, the airbag spews shrapnel on vehicle occupants during deployment. In other cases, it may not deploy at all, also potentially resulting in severe injury or even death.

Lawyers and staff continue to help me

I suffered from an allergic reaction to a common medication causing permanent injury when I was 15 years old. My settlement allows me to take care of myself instead of being on disability. Even after my case was over, the lawyers and staff continue to help me.
