Q: Only when I got into an accident my car’s SRS light turned on. Would I be able to sue car company?

Impact was so bad that I am bruised from my seatbelt, and I do not bruise easily. Shouldn’t the SRS light be on prior the accident? Since the light turned on doesn’t that mean my airbag should’ve deployed? I called company and looked up online and there are no open recalls on my vehicle.

Dale S. Gribow answered on Nov 19, 2021

if you can prove breach of contract or negligence, the amount is probably way to small to sue a large corporation.............and what did they do wrong? How did the accident happen.

they would choose to spend the money to fight it.
