$14M verdict levied against Korean automaker in airbag defect trial

A court verdict awarded by a U.S. jury stated that Hyundai Motor Co is to pay a Virginia man, who suffered traumatic brain damage after the side airbags in his Hyundai vehicle failed to deploy in an accident, $14 million.

After eight hours of deliberation in the Pulaski County state court, jurors awarded Zachary Duncan and his family the $14 million verdict on June 28. According to the lawsuit, the airbag in the Hyundai Tiburon 2008 did not deploy due to the wrong placement of sensors in the vehicle.

The automaker said they will file for an appeal in court.

Hyundai Elantra may have airbag defect

According to an owner of a 2012 Hyundai Elantra, the airbag system may be defective.

A complaint was filed by this owner after the driver’s side airbag deployed in an accident, injuring him. The airbag caused a piece of sharp metal to dislodge from the interior of the vehicle, and it was sharp enough to cut through the man’s ear.

The driver reported the incident because he said that the injury could have been more severe if the metal sliced his neck instead. The actual vehicle in which the airbag deployed has yet to be investigated, but regulators say that they are in the beginning stages of an official investigation.
