Airbag Defect Lawsuits
Concerned about an Airbag Defect?

Airbags are critical to the safety of a vehicle's driver and passengers, but defects in these airbag safety systems can create hazardous and potentially life-threatening situations.

When an auto manufacturer is aware of a defect in its vehicle's safety system, it generally has a duty to address and correct that problem. When it fails to disclose a known problem, consumers have important legal rights to hold it accountable. Girard Gibbs LLP represents consumers in car & auto lawsuits involving airbag defects and related safety systems.
