Airbags cause injuries in all sorts of ways. For example, airbags cause injuries to due failure to deploy or work. Vehicles utilize special sensors that determine if and when an accident has occurred and if airbag deployment is necessary. Sometimes those sensors fail, and the vehicle’s airbags don’t deploy when they should. This can cause unnecessary injury if the accident is bad enough and the airbag system doesn’t deploy and protect the vehicle’s occupants.

Airbags can also cause injuries due to unexpected or unnecessary deployment. That is, sometimes airbags can deploy when they shouldn’t. Airbags can deploy when the key is inserted into the ignition or when the vehicle hits something unexpected in the roadway, such as a bump in the road. When airbags deploy unnecessarily, they may cause injuries to the occupants of a vehicle – especially since the occupants do not expect the airbags to deploy. If the vehicle is moving at the time the airbags unexpectedly or unnecessarily deploy, such deployment may cause an accident and resultant injuries.

Sometimes airbags may expel metal parts, injuring the faces or other body parts of a vehicle’s occupants.

Airbags may experience late or delayed deployment. That is, airbags may deploy after an accident, but not in time to protect the occupants of the vehicle. If there is any delay, airbags may fail to prevent the injuries they are designed to prevent.

Airbags may likewise fail to prevent injuries in certain sizes of people. For example, if a child or petite person is sitting in the front seat of a vehicle, the airbags may fail to prevent injuries if they are designed to protect a full-sized adult.

Finally, oftentimes vehicles are manufactured without airbags. If you are injured in an automobile crash in which airbags would have prevented your injuries if they existed in your vehicle, you may have a case against the manufacturer of the vehicle. The vehicle should have been designed or manufactured with airbags.

Fort Lauderdale Defective Airbag Lawyer Anthony Quackenbush Counsels his Clients on the Dangers of Defective Airbags

If you are riding in a car anywhere in the State of Florida, there are certain things you can due to try to protect yourself against airbag injuries. For example, it is best to sit back in your seat while riding in a vehicle. Leaning too forward in your seat while driving or riding in an automobile can lead to injuries should airbags suddenly deploy or if you are involved in a wreck and the airbags deploy as a result.

It is also important not to allow children to sit in the front seats of vehicles. There is a reason why the law mandates that children ride in the backseat of vehicles. As mentioned above, vehicles are designed with airbags to protect full-sized people in the front seats of vehicles. If a child is sitting in the front seat of a vehicle at the time an airbag deploys, the airbag may cause injuries to the child.

Should you be injured due to an airbag failure occurring anywhere in Florida, it will be important to contact a Fort Lauderdale Defective Airbag Law Firm as soon as possible. You should preserve your vehicle exactly how it is after the accident. Mr. Quackenbush will be able to hire an expert witness to examine the airbags and see exactly what caused your injuries.
