Unintended Airbag Deployment Results in Honda Accord Recall

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) is investigating a series of complaints regarding the unintended deployment of side air bags on the 2008 Honda Accord when the front doors are closed. Currently, it is estimated there are 363,000 of the popular midsize Accords on the roads, and the NHTSA reports it has received 28 complaints. At least two injuries have been reported as the force of an airbag deployment has the ability to cause serious injury.

According to USA Today, the NHTSA website reports:

"Passenger got out of the car, closed for the front (passenger side) door and boom, out came the side curtain air bag," reported one. The driver, who isn't named, says they took the car to dealership, which said there had to be have been a collision. The driver's insurer said he couldn't make a claim without a collision. "Something has to happen here. This isn't right," he says.

In another report, a driver says his 9-year-old son was in the back seat when the air bag went off with a "loud boom." After the smoke cleared, he realized the boy had been struck, causing a concussion and blood behind his ear. He says he had to take the boy to the hospital to be checked out.

In the event this occurs to your Honda Accord, contact a lawyer to cover your damages, as well as Honda and NHTSA.
