Airbags are designed to deploy rapidly in the event of a collision to help protect vehicle occupants. However, if an airbag deploys too aggressively or too late, it can potentially cause injuries. Here are some potential injuries associated with airbag deployment issues.
It's important to note that modern airbag systems are designed and tested extensively to minimize the risk of injuries while providing effective protection during a collision. Issues with airbag deployment are relatively rare but can occur due to manufacturing defects, sensor malfunctions, or other technical problems.
Regular vehicle maintenance and prompt attention to airbag warning lights can help ensure that the airbag system is functioning correctly. If there are concerns about airbag performance, it is crucial to have the vehicle inspected by a qualified professional. You may also want to consult with an attorney regarding the airbag issue if it contributed to or caused serious injury.
