Airbags were designed to protect against the impact of a car crash. While airbags have saved lives, they can also cause damage of their own. Airbags can cause:
- Eye damage
- Broken bones
- Chemical or friction burns
- Head trauma
- Chest injuries
- Bone fractures
- Abrasions and lacerations
When an airbag has been poorly designed or manufactured, it could deploy early, late or not at all. An airbag can deploy spontaneously when no crash has occurred. Airbags deployed during low-speed collisions can actually increase injuries. Additionally, breathing problems can be caused by the chemicals used to instantly inflate the airbags.
