How Airbags Can Cause Injuries
Airbags can help minimize and prevent injuries in vehicle collisions. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration credits airbags with saving an estimated 2,790 lives in 2017. Front airbags also reduced car accident fatalities by around 29 percent. However, the potentially lifesaving device can also cause injuries. Airbags typically deploy at speeds of around 100 mph to 200 mph. The force of the impact can cause neck, spine, and traumatic brain injuries. Broken bones in the face can also occur, along with chest and internal injuries.
You can also sustain back and neck injuries. The chemicals used to deploy the airbags can cause burns. Flying shrapnel can also result in cuts and lacerations. If you experience any of these or other injuries associated with malfunctioning airbags, contact Morgan & Morgan to schedule a consultation with one of our specialists.
Tips on Preventing Airbag Injuries
You can take a few steps to prevent injuries from a malfunctioning airbag. Always wear your seatbelt; it’s also the law in Alabama. Drivers should sit back away from the steering wheel, and passengers want to sit back from the dashboard. This gives you a little more space between you and the airbag. Some other safety tips include:
- Place children 12 years old and younger in the back seat, and make sure they are properly buckled up or restrained in a child restraint device.
- Take care that children are secured into an approved child passenger restraint system and that children under the age of 18 are buckled up.
- As a driver, ensuring children are properly restrained is your responsibility.
