What Should You Do After A Car Accident?

Jacksonville Airbag Injury Lawyer

When airbags are deployed in commercials, movies, and television shows, they are typically presented as soft, pillow-like devices that cradle the driver or passenger and prevent injuries at all times. While airbags are designed to keep persons in a vehicle safe from the impact of a collision or crash, the high speed of deployment can cause serious injuries to drivers and passengers.

If an airbag is defective or is not deployed properly, people may suffer significant injuries to the head, face, neck, and body. If you have been injured in an airbag related accident, it is important to have an experienced personal injury attorney on your side.

Possible Causes of Airbag Injuries

Serious airbag injuries may be caused by:

  • Manufacturers’ defects
  • Improper inflation
  • Improper deployment speed
  • Exposure to eye and nose irritants from deployment
  • Injuries caused by the airbag module

In addition to injuries to adult drivers and passengers, children are also highly susceptible to injury if airbags are deployed in the vehicle. It is recommended that parents pay special attention to where their children are seated in the vehicle and how child-safety seats are arranged so that their children are properly protected in the event of a collision.

Common Airbag Injuries

When airbags deploy with too much force or if they are defective in any way, individuals who are in the vehicle may suffer serious injuries as a result. Commonly reported airbag injuries include:

  • Fractures to the nose, cheekbones, and other facial structures
  • Cuts and lacerations to the face and body
  • Whip-lash and other neck injuries
  • Concussion
  • Bruising to the face, neck, and body

If you or someone you love has been hurt by a defective or improperly deployed airbag, you may be eligible for compensation for pain, suffering, medical expenses, and other damages from the automobile or airbag manufacturer.
