No Link Between Air Bag Gasses and Death of Asthmatic
Andrews Automotive Litigation Reporter, November 20, 2001 reports "WASH. JURY FINDS NO LINK BETWEEN AIR BAG GASES, DEATH OF ASTHMATIC". A state court jury in Washington has returned a verdict for General Motors Corp. in the case of an asthmatic woman whose death after a minor accident was allegedly caused by inhalation of gases from the air bag. GM maintained that the woman's attack was not caused by the chemicals and could have occurred even if the air bag had not activated. The jury returned a 10-2 defense verdict after two days of deliberation.
