The Chicago Tribune reports, “Kia Motors said it is recalling 145,755 Optima sedans and Rondo crossover vehicles in the United States because of potentially faulty driver airbags.

The model years affected are 2006-2008 Optimas and 2007-2008 Rondos, Kia Motors America said in a statement on Monday.

The company has indicated that while they are unaware of any injuries caused at this time, it is possible that over time the driver’s side airbag may not deploy correctly in a car accident or collision. The recall will likely begin in the next couple of months.

The recall will affect 95,569 Optimas and 50,186 Rondos.

Chicago Car Accidents and Faulty Airbags

A person who is seriously injured in a Chicago car accident as a result of an airbag’s failure to deploy may be entitled to sue the automaker for auto products liability. Airbags are intended to deploy during a crash to prevent drivers from sustaining serious head injuries, particularly in head on collisions. An airbag’s failure to deploy can have disastrous consequences, including traumatic brain injury or even death. Airbags can fail to deploy for several reasons, including defective or faulty parts.

If you were injured in an Illinois auto accident involving a defective auto or a faulty auto part, is important that you retain the services of a Chicago injury lawyer that is experienced in successfully representing clients who were injured in auto accidents where products liability was a factor. They will help you recover compensation for your pain and suffering caused by a faulty or defective auto part.
