Tesla Sued After Airbags Malfunctioned

Kristian Edwards was driving her Model 3 Tesla when she was struck by another vehicle. It caused her to slam into the guardrail on the interstate highway. None of the Tesla's airbags deployed. Mrs. Edwards, a public health professor at George Washington University in Washington, suffered major injuries, including head trauma and brain damage. Mrs. Edwards was wearing her seat belt; her son was in the back seat and also sustained injuries. Suit was filed against Tesla. The family is seeking to be compensated for medical bills, Mrs. Edwards' loss of earning capacity, and her pain and suffering.

The Model 3 has been said to be the "safest car ever built" by Tesla's co-founder and claims to have the lowest risk of injury of any other vehicle tested by government regulators. Defects have been alleged in the Tesla's Autopilot system and is the subject of several lawsuits for other deaths and injuries. It is also noteworthy that the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration is currently investigating premature failures of the central touchscreen and the computer that powers it in Tesla's Model S sedans.

When someone is injured or dies as a result of an accident, financial recovery may be available. Such recovery is particularly important when permanent, life changing injuries are incurred. It is important to contact someone who understands the intricacies of the injured party's right to recover.
