If I was wearing a seat belt and was involved in an auto accident in which I sustained injuries, what should I do if my air bags didn’t deploy?

I had a sore jaw, neck and thigh bruise. I went to the doctor but didn’t need X-rays; I did receive medication.

Air bags do not always deploy in every accident but you seem to think that maybe they should have.  If they should have then it could be a product defect.  If you were injured then you should consult a personal injury attorney about the injuries and facts of your case.  Good luck.
