Failed airbags can be the cause of injury and the companies responsible liable for damages in the right case with the right facts. Experts will also have to be engaged to review, examine, and possibly test involved parts and vehicles. If the injuries are serious enough, it may be worth pursuing.

Today my attorney emailed me saying he chooses not to represent me in a personal injury type of situation. He hasn’t given me any reason of why he chose not to continue with my claim.

Sounds like you have a potentially good case. Contact an experienced personal injury lawyer right away. Best if it is in the area where the fall took place. This would be on a contingency basis, so you wouldn't pay anything until the lawyer got you money.
