Airbags are intended to help protect occupants of a car or truck in an accident. Airbag injuries occur when the airbag is defective or does not work properly. In these cases, the airbag can become extremely hazardous and cause injury or even death.
An airbag that deploys with excessive speed and force may cause fractures to the face of the person who is being “protected.” Forceful deployment has even been known to cause airbag injuries as severe as blindness in some victims.
Conversely, when an airbag does not deploy properly, a driver’s face may smash into the steering wheel or windshield, or a passenger may collide with the dashboard or the windshield.

When a serious injury results from defective or poorly designed airbags, it is important to question whether any negligence was involved on the part of the auto manufacturer. Technology exists involving strategically placed sensors that can protect rather than harm.
When a client of Lowe Eklund Wakefield Co., LPA, has suffered a catastrophic injury related to airbag malfunction or poor design, our Cleveland airbag injury attorneys demand an explanation—and fair compensation for the victim.
