Malfunctioning safety equipment can cause more damage than the accident itself. An airbag that deploys inappropriately due to an error by a service technician or by faulty original design can cause injuries that could lead to blindness or broken bones in the face.
How seat belts and airbags may malfunction
Common ways an airbag may malfunction include:
- The airbag fails to deploy in an accident.
- The airbag deploys for no reason at all or because of a bump in the road.
- The airbag deploys and releases dangerous chemicals and burns the driver or passenger.
Seat belts that fail to restrain a passenger or driver properly, that are defective, or have been compromised by poor workmanship can lead to organ damage, broken ribs that cause internal bleeding, or other injuries requiring surgery.
Some examples of defective seat belts include:
- Broken seat belt buckles
- False latching
- Shoulder strap defects
- Seat belt retractor failure
