Question about 2005 Chevrolet Impala
My husband was in an accident in our car. He lost control of the car and hit a culvert on the driver's side. After he hit the culvert the car was then airborn and as the vehicle was spinning around in the air it came down and hit the front of the car completely demolishing the front and then the car came down on the rear and demolished it. During all of this time the airbags never deployed in the steering wheel or the dash. My husband was ejected from the vehicle at some point of the accident and hit the pavement. He suffered severe head trauma and by the time he was taken to the hospital he had passed away. I believe that if the airbags would have deployed he would still be here today because they would have helped in keeping him inside the car. Please explain to me why the airbags did not deploy. Thanks.
First you need to know if the air bag light was coming on before the accident, if the light was coming on then the car should be fixed before in order to get the air bags to work propelly, also were did you buy the car from? was this a new car purchased? or did you buy it used at small dealer ? because if it was new or bought used from a dealer, they are supposed to do an inspection safety check on every car before they can sell it to the public, also for what i understand the air bag module stores a lot of information after an accident, like what speed was the car going, if he did stop or acerelate the car at time of accident, it stores lost of information. and to be honest with you i don't know if the car can save this information with the air bag previously on, but ask the police department or the investigators to pull the information from the air bag module wich is like a black box installed on air planes, something similar, i hope and you stiil have the car or acces to it, but you right if he got out the caR at moment of firts impact, he would be here now, but that's just my way to think or imajine, since i was not there, i hope and this information help, and if you trying to sue somebody, make sure to try to sue the bigest company involve in this deal because i belive there will be only 1 sue case by case, you better get some legal help since i'm not an attorney, and i will aprecciate you ranking to my answer since that will really help my score
