Although airbags are there to protect us and save our lives, they too can actually cause us more harm than you might imagine. Injuries sustained from airbags are rare but do happen, and if you have come to harm because of a faulty airbag and it wasn’t your fault, we may be able to help you get compensation for your injuries. Read on for information about the most common accidents as a result of airbags.
Need compensation for accidents as a result of airbags?
Some of the reasons airbags can be so dangerous include the substances found in the bags and how fast the airbags deploy. There are many different air bag designs on the market, and different products can affect us in different ways. Airbags can cause abrasions to the face and chest, contusions, strains and fractures to the spine, burns, loss of consciousness, swelling and bruising on the brain, lacerations, hearing loss, wrist trauma and more. We want to hear from you if you’ve had accidents as a result of airbags.
Some of the injuries that can result from air bags can lead to serious health issues, disabilities and even death. Many people have been injured when airbags have failed to deploy correctly. However, they also have many positive attributes which can be the difference between life and death. Airbags are not a panacea and they cannot always prevent you from being injured in car crashes. If you have been in a road accident that wasn’t your fault and it happened in the last three years, you may well be able to claim compensation.
