When Does An Airbag Deploy Incorrectly?

The malfunctioning of a crash sensor is the leading cause of airbag deployment errors. A number of things could result in a malfunctioning crash sensor, including the following:

  1. Crash Sensor Failure: When a crash sensor fails, it may result in the airbag deploying at an unnecessary time.
  2. Airbag Deployment in a Minor Car Accident: When an airbag deploys in a low impact car accident, it can result in serious injury or even death.
  3. Airbag Deployment Failure: Failure of an airbag to deploy when it is supposed to during a car accident. For example, one airbag deploys, while another malfunctions and does not.
  4. Delayed Airbag Deployment: If an airbag’s deployment is delayed by even one second, it could cause serious injury to occupants of the vehicle.

Even a fraction of a second’s delay in the deployment of an airbag can result in serious bodily injury or death. During that second of delay, a vehicle occupant’s head can come perilously close to the airbag or steering wheel.

Types Of Injuries Caused By Defective Airbags In Buffalo, New York

Defective AirbagsThe head, neck and chest are particularly susceptible to injuries following the failure of an airbag to properly deploy or an airbag’s faulty deployment. Common injuries caused by airbags include:

  1. Facial Injuries: The face is often the first body part that comes in contact with the airbag when the airbag deploys. This can cause facial bone fractures, deep cuts and permanent facial scarring.
  2. Eye Injuries: The force of the deployed airbag or the chemicals the airbag releases may directly contact one eye or both eyes. The damage caused by the sudden force of the airbag could damage the eyes to the point of partial or full blindness.
  3. Neck and Spinal Injuries: The neck and back can be fragile after an airbag accident in Buffalo, New York. The extreme force of the airbag deployment may result in neck or spinal injuries, including whiplash, which can require long-term medical treatment and rehabilitation. In serious cases, surgery may be required to treat an injury to the neck or back.
  4. Chest Injuries: When an airbag deploys from the dashboard and collides with a passenger’s body, the passenger’s chest might be seriously injured. Damage to the soft tissue and broken bones in the chest commonly occur in airbag-related accidents.
  5. Chemical and Burn Injuries: The high speed of airbag deployment could cause burns and abrasions on the face, arms and other vulnerable areas. The airbag will release chemicals upon deployment, which could trigger an asthma attack in a victim.

Unfortunately, bodily injuries and death caused by defective airbags are not uncommon in Buffalo, New York; Niagara Falls, New York; Rochester, New York and throughout New York State.

How To Minimize The Risk Of Airbag Injuries

Defective airbags may significantly injure passengers. Children, seniors, pregnant women and weak or sick individuals are at a higher risk of injury due to an airbag malfunction.

Keep these preventive tips in mind to minimize the risk of an airbag injury:

  1. Make sure that the driver and passengers always wear a seatbelt.
  2. Children younger than 12 years of age should not sit in the front seat.
  3. Children younger than 8 years of age should be seated in a well-fitting booster seat or car seat.
  4. Rear-facing baby seats should not be placed in the front of the car. Until the child is at least one year old or weighs 20 pounds, he or she should ride in the back of the car in a rear-facing infant seat.
  5. The lap belt must not be placed over the belly, and should instead fit snugly over the hips. This tip is particularly important for pregnant women.
  6. The shoulder belt must not be placed behind your back or under your arm.
  7. While driving, make sure you are seated at least 10 inches apart from the steering wheel. Tilt the steering wheel down or adjust your seat if needed.
