Airbag Injuries in Paducah

Since airbags became required for all new cars in the 90s, they have saved thousands of lives during even the most catastrophic car accidents. Unfortunately, when airbags malfunction, they can cause significant injuries. This is because an airbag can deploy and impact passengers at upwards of 100 miles per hour.

This impact can cause facial fractures, head injuries, hearing loss, broken bones, eye injuries, and so much more. If you experience Paducah airbag injuries, you may be eligible to receive compensation for your damages.

  • What Makes an Airbag Defective

    Airbags are lifesavers most of the time, literally. But there is such a thing as defective airbags that can cause catastrophic injuries and even death when a collision occurs. Faulty airbags don’t work safely or effectively due to poor design and/or manufacturing. A fairly well-known defective airbag case involves the recalled Takata airbag. The Takata airbag defects are caused by the two following issues:

    • There is a highly flammable propellant agent in the airbag inflator called ammonium nitrate.
    • There is no drying agent to absorb moisture.

    Ammonium nitrate begins to deteriorate when it’s exposed to moisture. If this deterioration begins before a car accident happens, there is a higher risk of explosion from the Takata airbag inflators. Naturally, drivers and passengers could suffer catastrophic injuries from this explosion. But this wasn’t the only Takata airbag malfunction. Other common defects include defective crash sensors. This specific airbag defect would make the airbags fail to deploy, deploy too late, or unexpectedly deploy.

  • Common Types of Airbag Injuries in Paducah

    Not only can defective airbags cause severe harm, but non-defective airbags can also cause injuries, especially in the event of a car crash. Airbags are designed to save lives, but that often means that people suffer serious injuries as a result of the rapid airbag deployment, such as:

    • Broken bones in the upper body and arms
    • Facial fractures
    • Bruising
    • Eye irritation and injuries (from the dust and chemicals that airbags release upon deployment)
    • Throat irritation and coughing (again, from the dust and chemicals)
    • Ear ringing and/or hearing loss (airbag deployment can generate sound pressure of up to 170 decibels)
    • Chemical burns on the face, chest, and arms
    • Loss of fetus and/or fetal injuries in pregnant women
    • Traumatic brain injuries such as a concussion
    • Internal bleeding
