Springfield Airbag Defects Attorneys
Airbags are meant to be one of the top safety features in many automobiles, yet defective airbags can be more dangerous than the impact of an auto collision in some cases. Defective airbags tend to be most hazardous to children, but adults can suffer severe injury from an improperly deployed airbag. When you are injured by an airbag, the auto manufacturer is usually at fault.
If you or a loved one has been injured by a faulty airbag, call the Springfield airbag failure lawyers of Strong-Garner-Bauer P.C. at (417) 855-2022 to learn more about airbag defect cases.
How long do I have to file a personal injury case in Missouri?Every state has a time limit for how long you have to file a personal injury claim called the statute of limitations. In Missouri, the statute of limitations for personal injury cases is five years from the date the injury occurred or could have been reasonably discovered. If you fail to file your personal injury lawsuit before the statute of limitations expires then the defendant will most certainly file a motion to dismiss the case.

Common Airbag Defects
Airbag defects come in many forms, each one presenting its own dangers. Some of the most common airbag defects include:
- Late deployment
- Early/unintentional deployment
- Deployment failure
- Excessive airbag force
- Failure to inflate
These are just some of the airbag defects that are commonly reported. Cases in which airbags deploy late, fail to deploy, or don’t inflate can be harmful to you if you are in an accident since you lose that cushion. This may cause you to suffer head trauma or broken bones.
