Causes Of Airbag Injuries

Airbags can cause injury, or compound initial injuries in 2 ways: either the force of the airbag at deployment exerts injury or the airbag fails to deploy. Airbags deploy with a force of almost 2000 pounds and at a speed of approximately 200 miles per hour. The physics alone associated with airbag inflation mean that sometimes serious injuries to the head, neck and torso can result.

An airbag can also fail to inflate, or improperly inflate, upon impact. This leaves your face, head, neck and torso vulnerable to injury as they are thrust into the steering wheel, dashboard, windshield and side windows.

Airbags Injuries And Smaller Motorists

An airbag is designed to accommodate a driver or passenger who is of average height and build, This equates to someone who is approximately 5’8″ and 180 pounds. A child, small female or smaller male may be susceptible to serious airbag caused injuries due to their frame not being large enough to sustain the impact and force exerted when the airbag inflates.

Injuries Caused By Defective Airbags

If you are in an accident, even a minor one, and your airbag(s) does not function properly you can sustain substantially more serious injuries such as:

  • Brain and head injuries
  • Neck injuries
  • Central Nervous System injuries
  • Paralysis
  • Wrongful Death
