Did an Airbag Fail to Deploy, or Cause an Injury?
Airbags serve a very important purpose and can often prevent more serious injuries and even death in a collision. With increased use of airbags, however, there has been a subsequent increase in injuries that are caused by airbags. Injuries that range from soft tissue damage to serious cervical spine fractures have all been the result of airbag deployment. It is important when pursuing compensation for an airbag injury to have a seasoned personal injury attorney on your side with a background in airbag injuries. If you or a loved one has been involved in an accident and is now suffering from injuries due to airbag deployment, or a failure to deploy, it is in your best interests to speak with an attorney from the firm.

About Airbag Injuries
Although a large percentage of these cases do not result in catastrophic injuries, there are some that have led to brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, and paralysis. When an airbag deploys it comes out of the dashboard at 100 miles per hour or more. In some cases it is covered in chemicals that can enter the eye and cause damage to the individual’s sight. When the crash sensor is triggered, an igniter fills the airbag with gas at a rapid rate. The timing of the airbag is extremely important and when the airbag timer is defective, the result can be serious injury or death. Even when the airbag does deploy on time, it can cause injuries such as abrasions, serious eye injury, burns, and asthma from chemical inhalation. In an airbag injury case your attorney may have to pursue compensation from the auto manufacturer, the airbag inspector, or the airbag manufacturer. It is important to have an attorney that fully understands all of the issues pertaining to airbag injuries. Please contact our firm today so that we can review your case.
