Airbag Injuries

Assistance from a Long Beach Car Accident Attorney

When a vehicle experiences a high force of impact, such as the force of impact from a car accident, the vehicle's airbags will deploy. This deployment occurs at very high speeds—as fast as 200 miles per hour, according to GM—and with great force. While airbags are designed to protect drivers and passengers, the mere speed and force of these safety contraptions can themselves be the cause of injuries. Airbag injuries should not be overlooked when it comes time to seek compensation for the damages incurred by a car accident. The injury victim and his or her lawyer should be sure to list these injuries in the car accident claim that is filed. Here are a few of the various types of injuries that may occur as a result of airbag deployment:

  • Broken bones (such as fractured ribs, collar bones, wrists, arms, etc.)
  • Blunt trauma from the impact of deployment
  • Cardiac or pulmonary complications
  • Soft-tissue injuries (such as deep bruising)
  • Eye injuries
  • Burns

Injuries such as these can result in costly medical bills, an inability to work (which leads to lost wages), physical pain and suffering, emotional trauma and more. It is important that injury victims seek payment for these damages from the at-fault party.
