The airbag was developed to protect motor vehicle passengers in the event of an accident. Many vehicles have airbag warnings notifying drivers and passengers of possible dangers linked to airbags. The inflation of an airbag is especially dangerous for a child sitting in the front passenger seat. Airbag studies have reported that airbags may cause injury or death to children in the passenger seat even when they are wearing a seatbelt.
Since 1990 over 200 fatalities have resulted from airbags inflating during auto accidents. Many serious personal injuries may result from the inflation of airbags, including:
- Facial injuries
- Eye injuries
- Bone fractures
Airbags were designed to protect an averaged sized person of approximately 5’8” and 180 pounds. Recent studies have been conducted on the injuries sustained by smaller adult drivers, who are likely to be positioned closer to the steering wheel. No matter the size of the vehicle driver or passenger, airbags pose a physical threat.
Airbag manufacturers should be held liable for the injuries that airbags cause to innocent auto passengers. With a capable airbag injury attorney representing your case you may be able to receive maximum monetary compensation for your injuries.
If you or a loved one has suffered damages as a result of an airbag injury, you should seek the advice of a qualified motor vehicle accident lawyer.
