WESTON, Fla., March 23, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Victim's Rights Attorney Jason Turchin announces the filing of a provisional patent application with a proposed design fix for all newly produced airbag systems to help prevent future airbag ruptures and malfunctions. Attorney Turchin represents several victims allegedly injured by shrapnel or over inflation of exploding airbags in claims against Takata and other vehicle manufacturers.
Turchin's own extensive investigation into the cause of the reported airbag malfunctions led him to develop the filed patent application. "I wanted to create a system where airbags can be inspected prior to an accident for problems, much like pre-accident inspections of car engines and brakes, having your oil changed, or having tires rotated at certain intervals," said Turchin. "My goal has been to not only get answers for the victims I represent, but to also help figure out a way to prevent more people from getting injured or killed from an exploding airbag in the future," adds Turchin. Without a way to inspect airbags in a pre-accident state, Turchin fears that drivers and passengers may not know if their airbag is defective until the moment of impact when the airbag deploys, and by then it is too late.
The proposed patent is titled "Vehicle Airbag and Steering Wheel System" and was assigned Application Serial Number 62/128,902 by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office. The patent filing discloses a system for inspecting an airbag and inflator unit during a pre-accident inspection or at any desired time. "While investigating airbag injury cases, I observed what appeared to be rust, corrosion and expanded metal on the outside of defective airbag inflator containers. Had a mechanic been able to look inside the airbag prior to these accidents, he or she could have visually inspected the inflator container and other outside parts, and could have seen visible signs of deterioration prior to the crash. These airbags could have been replaced before the crash and our clients never would have been injured from shrapnel," said Turchin.
Benefits posed by Turchin in the patent filing include the ability for vehicle owners to replace defective or rusted airbag units before an accident, increased consumer consumption of airbag units leading to increased business for product manufacturers, and most importantly, according to Turchin, safer and more reliable airbags operating at their optimum safety level in the event of a crash.
