Complaint - Air Bags

I WAS DRIVING OUT OF MY NEIGHBOOD IN A 25 MPH ZONE AND HIT A MAIL TRUCK ON THE WRONG SIDE IF THE ROAD. I HIT THE MAIL TRUCK AFTER TURNING A CORNER, AS I TURNED THE CORNER, A SPIDER CRAWLED FROM THE CEILING OF MY CAR AND I TRIED TO SWAT IT AWAY AND DIDN'T SEE THE MAIL TRUCK. THE IMPACT CAUSED THE AIRBAG TO DEPLOY BUT THE DEPLOYMENT OF THE AIRBAG WAS DELAYED, IT DID NOT HAPPENED IMMEDIATELY BUT A FEW SECONDS AFTER THE IMPACT CAUSING BAD BURNS AND BLISTERS TO MY HAND. I DID NOT SEEK MEDICAL ATTENTION BUT DOCTORED ON MY HAND MYSELF; IT TOOK MONTHS BEFORE THE APPEARANCE IF MY HAND WOULD LOOK NORMAL. I HAVE PICTURES. THE REPAIR SHOP, TOW TRUCK AND POLICE OFFICER COULD NOT UNDERSTAND WHY THE AIRBAG DEPLOYED IN THE FIRST PLACE WITH SUCH LOW SPEED. IT TOOK MONTHS TO GET MY CAR REPAIRED, LONGER THAN NORMAL. I AM THE ORIGINAL OWNER OF THE CAR. THE RECENT RECALLS HAVE CAUSED ME TO WRITE THIS, I HAD NO IDEA THE AIRBAGS WERE DEFECTIVE. IT WAS A VERY BIG INCONVIENIENCE TO ME.
