Airbag Injuries in New York City
If you drive a car produced within the last 25 years, it probably features front airbags, an important safety feature required on all modern vehicles. It is estimated that, over the previous three decades, at least 50,000 lives have been saved by airbags, according to statistics from the National Highway Traffic and Safety Administration (NHTSA).
When a built-in sensor detects a frontal impact during a car accident, the airbag inflates rapidly, connecting with the body to push it back and prevent it from smashing into the steering wheel, dashboard, or windshield. However, the force of an airbag itself can cause significant injury. Sometimes, as in the case of the recent Takata airbag recall, airbags can malfunction and cause injury, even when no accident has occurred.
If you or a loved one has suffered airbag injuries in New York City, you may be eligible to file a claim and receive compensation from those responsible for your car accident and/or the manufacturer of the airbag or your vehicle. The airbag injury experts at Morgan & Morgan can determine who is at fault for your injuries and help you hold them responsible.

Most Common Airbag Injuries
Because an airbag inflates with such incredible force, airbag injuries in New York City are inevitable in any accident. The force of an airbag can hurl debris into a victim’s face or hyperextend a driver’s wrists and fingers as their hands are pushed from the steering wheel. Fractured bones and internal bleeding are common injuries resulting from the force of an airbag hitting the body.
Some of the most common airbag injuries in New York City car accidents include:
- eye, throat, nose, and lung irritation from the chemical powders inside airbags
- sprained hands, wrists, and fingers
- facial bone fractures
- cracked and broken ribs
Most minor airbag injuries will usually heal within eight weeks of an accident. However, more severe airbag injuries can cause permanent disability and even death. Internal organ damage, traumatic brain injuries, and spinal cord injuries can all occur.
Regardless of the extent of your airbag injuries, you may be eligible to pursue compensation.
