Airbag Injuries in Marietta

Airbag Injuries in Marietta

An airbag injury refers to any type of injury that occurs as a result of the deployment of an automotive airbag. While airbags are designed to save lives by cushioning and protecting occupants in the event of a collision, they can also cause injuries due to their rapid inflation and deployment force. Even if your Marietta airbag injuries are minor, you still may be eligible to receive compensation for your damages. Contact Morgan & Morgan for a free, no-obligation case evaluation.

  • Common Types of Marietta Airbag Injuries

    Injuries caused by airbags can range in severity from a minor chest bruise to neck and chest injuries. Some common types of airbag injuries include the following,

    Contusions and Abrasions

    These are the most common types of airbag injuries. When the airbag deploys, it can forcefully hit the driver or passenger, causing bruises, scrapes, and abrasions, particularly on the chest, face, arms, and hands.

    Burns

    Airbags can generate high temperatures upon deployment due to the rapid inflation of the gas inside. This can lead to burns, especially if the occupant's skin comes into direct contact with the hot airbag material.

    Fractures and Dislocations

    The force of the airbag's deployment can result in fractures or dislocations of bones, particularly in the hands, wrists, arms, and even the ribs. These injuries may occur as the airbag pushes against an occupant's arms or hands as it inflates.

    Eye Injuries

    The force of the airbag deploying can cause eye injuries, such as corneal abrasions or retinal detachment, if an occupant's face is too close to the airbag when it inflates.

    Facial Injuries

    The rapid inflation of the airbag can impact an occupant's face and cause injuries like facial fractures, lacerations, or contusions. These injuries can be especially severe if the occupant is not properly restrained by a seatbelt.

    Neck and Back Injuries

    The sudden force of an airbag deployment can lead to whiplash-like injuries, which may affect the neck and upper back. While airbags are designed to protect the head and chest, they can still exert substantial force on the neck and spine.

    Hearing Damage

    The loud noise generated during airbag deployment can cause temporary or permanent hearing damage to occupants who are very close to the airbag when it goes off.

    Determining liability for an airbag injury can be complex and depends on various factors, including the circumstances of the accident, the vehicle's condition, and the actions of the individuals involved. Due to the complexities of personal injury law, it’s usually best to work with an experienced attorney. Morgan & Morgan has a nationwide network of over 1,000 attorneys in all 50 states. Some of our attorneys are even located in the Marietta area.
