Chicago Defective Air Bags Attorneys

Illinois Automotive Product Liability Lawyers

Air bags in motor vehicles are critical safety components that have saved many lives in accidents. Unfortunately, when air bags malfunction, the results can be life-threatening. Automobile manufacturers have a responsibility to ensure that the vehicles they make are safe, that the proper safety features are installed and that those safety features will work as intended when the situation arises.

At the law firm of Woodruff Johnson & Palermo, in Illinois, our attorneys provide experienced representation for individuals who have been harmed due to defective air bags and other auto defect claims. It is important to have a knowledgeable attorney, since frequently, the only way to prove negligence in these cases is by hiring experts who can show how air bag failures occur.

Chicago Defective Air Bag Lawyers

In an auto collision, when there is a sudden deceleration and impact of the vehicle, air bags are designed to deploy. Our firm handles defective air bag claims in situations where air bags deploy too early, too late or not at all. We have handled situations involving:

  • Sensor defects
  • Insufficient or inadequate sensors
  • Electronic control unit defects
  • Over-inflation of the air bag
  • Under inflation of the air bag

One of our attorneys, Mario Palermo, was successful several years ago by using black box technology to show that an air bag did not deploy when it was supposed to and, as a result, was the proximate cause of a fatal neck injury to an occupant. Our firm has the experience and knowledge to protect your rights.
