    Injury solicitor in Nuneaton and Bedworth and airbag claims – FAQs

    Why did my air bags inflate during my accident?

    When your car collided with another object the sensors at the front of your car were put under pressure and sent a signal to the air bags telling them to inflate. They did this so fast that they stopped your body from hitting the steering wheel or the dashboard.

    Could the airbag have hurt me?

    A personal injury solicitor in Nuneaton and Bedworth spends very little time dealing injuries caused by air bags themselves. This is because they are usually mild and far less severe than the injuries that would have been sustained without them. However, it is true that pregnant women, shorter lighter drivers and drivers with disabilities may have legitimate concerns about injuries from airbags and may wish to consult their vehicle’s manufacturer about this.

    Airbags are designed to work when a seatbelt is also worn and cannot work effectively if the drivers or passengers are not wearing them. They also work best if the seat is in a position that is as far back as possible. If the driver positions their hands in the quarter to three position on the wheel then their arms do not get in the way of the airbag as it is inflating.

    Do airbags inflate in every accident?

    No, air bags are designed to inflate during the more serious collisions. They are designed not to inflate when the car goes over pot holes or has a minor bump when parking.

    Can I claim for compensation for my injuries?

    A personal injury solicitor in Nuneaton and Bedworth may be able to help you make a claim if the accident was not your own fault. The person who was at fault for the accident will be the person that you claim from.
