  • How Airbags Can Cause Injuries

    When an airbag doesn’t deploy properly, injuries can happen. Here are a few examples of how airbags can malfunction.

    • Airbag deploys too late after a crash
    • Airbag deploys when no crash is detected
    • Airbag contains shrapnel
    • The airbag doesn’t deploy after a collision
    • Not all airbags deploy adequately

    Since airbags deploy at a rate of around 200 mph, you can sustain severe injuries.

  • Common Types of Airbag Injuries in Lakeland

    Some airbag injuries are relatively minor, like a bruised shoulder. Other injuries are more severe. Here’s a look at some of the common types of airbag injuries.

    Facial Injuries

    The airbag's impact can cause bruises and minor cuts on your face. The force of the deployment can also burst eardrums and result in other types of ear injuries. Temporary or permanent loss of hearing can occur, along with a persistent ringing sound in your ears. The chemicals that inflate the airbag can cause eye injuries and even broken facial bones like your nose and cheeks.

    Chest Injuries

    Chest injuries from airbags include fractured ribs, internal bleeding, and even heart problems. The impact of the airbag and the force of the seatbelt pulling you back can cause chest pain and bruising that lasts for weeks after the accident.

    Head and Neck Injuries

    The extreme force from an airbag can knock your head back, causing a traumatic brain injury. The force from the airbag can also cause whiplash, a soft tissue neck injury. If you’re hit in the face, neck, or head by an airbag, seek immediate medical attention.

  • Common Types of Airbag Defects

    Rapid deployment often comes to mind when you think of an airbag defect. This is a common airbag defect, but it’s not the only one.

    Failure to Deploy

    Airbags are designed to deploy when a vehicle is struck with a significant amount of force. If the airbag fails to deploy, you and your passengers may sustain serious injuries that may have been preventable.

    Improper Sensitivity

    Some airbags have malfunctioning sensors that can cause early deployment. An accident can occur if a driver is suddenly surprised by an unexpectedly deployed airbag. Along with surprising the driver into a car accident, the force of the deployment can cause significant injuries.

    Improper Installation or Replacement

    Most airbags are installed at the time the vehicle is manufactured. If the airbag is improperly installed, it might not function as intended when an accident occurs. Another problem arises when a third party replaces or repairs an airbag. Some repair shops use poorly recycled or faulty airbags when replacing one that was previously deployed.
