My vehicle does have air bags, but when a truck hit me recently, the air bags did not deploy. Can I file a lawsuit against the air bag maker?

Yes, you may be able to file a lawsuit against the manufacturer of the airbags and particularly if the maker of those bags happens to be Takata. You may recall the massive, worldwide defective airbag recall involving numerous deaths and serious injuries when poorly made air bags exploded and shot shrapnel onto drivers and passengers. If you want further information on the types of vehicles involved in the global recall, please visit: https://www.nhtsa.gov/equipment/takata-recall-spotlight

If your car has air bags not manufactured by Takata, you can still file a suit against the air bag maker. Contact a personal injury attorneys at Schuelke Law for a free consultation.
