You may qualify for financial compensation even if:

You might be entitled to compensation if you were driving one of the listed Nissan models and were in an accident in which your passenger-side airbags did not deploy in a collision. It does not matter who was at fault in the accident or if an insurance claim was filed. It does not matter if you have already received compensation from an insurance company for the accident.

Nissan Has a Problem with Airbag Failures
Have you suffered an injury or fatality due to your Nissan Passenger Side Airbag not deploying in an accident? Nissan is currently recalling almost 3.2 million vehicles in the United States alone because of an occupancy classification sensor(OCS) malfunction that may cause passenger-side airbags to fail to deploy in an accident.
Nissan has also issued a recall of more than 600,000 of the 2013-2016 Sentra models (including those currently recalled for faulty airbag sensors), because of a front-passenger seatbelt bracket that may become deformed if used to secure a child’s car seat.
In February 2013, Nissan recalled over 82,000 vehicles in the U.S because of faulty airbag sensors, and then expanded that recall in March 2014 to include nearly one million vehicles. Nissan had cited “unusual seating posture” and possible engine vibrations to explain why the sensor failed to activate when someone was sitting in the seat. Currently, there are nearly 3,300 complaints lodged over the faulty OSC sensor, and at least one person has been injured because of the defective airbag sensor.*
Our attorneys are investigating claims that some passengers of these Nissan vehicles have been injured or worse because of faulty airbag sensors. Please contact us today if you have suffered an injury because your Nissan passenger-side airbag did not deploy, or if the airbag failure caused a loved one to suffer critically fatal injuries.
