No, all they can do is provide the technology. They can't be responsible for everything that happens. Having air bags just increases your potential for surviving a collision. If it turns out that the basic technology is flawed and there is a consistent pattern of failure, you might have a case. Otherwise, a crash could cut the wire before the bag has a chance to deploy, in which case, the manufacturer isn't responsible for what happens next.
