Causes of Defective Airbag Injuries
There are a few different ways an airbag can fail to operate properly and therefore cause injury to a passenger in an auto accident You could be injured either by the airbag’s failure to deploy or its inadvertent deployment.
Failure to Deploy
We all depend on airbags in automobiles to provide a last-second cushion and absorb the bulk of an impact. If an airbag fails to deploy during a car accident, a passenger can sustain serious injuries to their head, neck, face, and even their brain.
An airbag can also cause serious injury if it deploys inadvertently, such as without impact or due to very minor impact. An airbag is meant to deploy within milliseconds at an extremely high velocity. This impact can leave someone seriously injured or block their view and cause them to crash.
Faulty Airbags & Children
On a normal-sized person, a properly deployed airbag may cause a bit of bruising or other types of injuries. However, airbags are not manufactured with children in mind.
The manufacturers of child safety seats understand and recognize the connection between their products, airbags, and the injuries the two products combined can cause, yet we still encounter issues of child safety. Because they are not designed with children or smaller people in mind, airbags can actually cause them more harm than good. Instead of the passenger’s head hitting the airbag in the center, cushioning the blow, a smaller person’s head will hit an airbag off-center, which could knock their head back further and cause a head or neck injury.
