A collision in a motor vehicle at any speed, particularly high speeds, can have serious physical consequences for a driver and passenger. For this reason, auto manufacturers have continued to create and improve new safety mechanisms to better protect passengers in the event of an auto accident. Airbag systems are designed to absorb some of the impact of a crash, in turn, it is meant to reduce the instances of injury. However, sometimes, the airbag itself is the cause of an injury. A defective airbag may deploy at the wrong time, explode, or even fail to deploy at all, resulting in serious injury for passengers within the vehicle.

If an airbag deploys incorrectly or malfunctions, it can cause serious injury. Some injuries include:

  • Skin Abrasions
  • Hearing Damage
  • Head Injury
  • Eye Damage
  • Broken Bones
  • Suffocation

Thousands of Americans have been injured due to faulty airbags or other vehicle safety mechanisms. Commonly, problems occur when the airbag deploys at the incorrect time, either too quickly or too slowly. In instances where it deploys incorrectly, the force of the impact of the airbag with the passenger could result in head trauma. Sometimes, the airbag might fail to deflate, leading to suffocation. At other times, it may fail to deploy at all, causing serious injury or death due to an impact with the windshield. An airbag is designed to be your last source of defense upon a collision. When it fails to function properly, your life is at risk.

Throughout the years, the automobile industry has attempted to make improvements in their safety features of their vehicles. However, as the number of safety mechanisms increase, the greater the instances of error become. Today, many vehicles come with side-impact airbags as well as traditional frontal airbags. These come with their own set of issues which can also lead to instances of abrasions, broken bones, hearing damage, and broken bones if they are defective or deploy incorrectly. If you have been the victim of a defective airbag, seeking the legal advice of a lawyer experienced with product liability law is the best solution in regards to attaining the compensation that you deserve.
