Airbags are meant to be one of the top safety features in many automobiles, yet defective airbags can be more dangerous than the impact of an auto collision in some cases. Defective airbags tend to be most hazardous to children, but adults can suffer severe injury from an improperly deployed airbag. When you are injured by an airbag, the auto manufacturer is usually at fault.

Common Airbag Defects
Airbag defects come in many forms, each one presenting its own dangers. Some of the most common airbag defects include:
- Late deployment
- Early/unintentional deployment
- Deployment failure
- Excessive airbag force
- Failure to inflate
These are just some of the airbag defects that are commonly reported. Cases in which airbags deploy late, fail to deploy, or don’t inflate can be harmful to you if you are in an accident since you lose that cushion. This may cause you to suffer head trauma or broken bones.
When airbags deploy early or unintentionally, they may distract the driver, which may, in turn, cause an accident. Airbags that deploy with excessive force put drivers and passengers at the risk of an injury, usually pertaining to broken bones.
Airbag defects usually result from manufacturing or design defects, which may be part of a larger problem. No matter the source of the defect, the automobile manufacturer is usually at fault for injuries resulting from bad airbags and should be held accountable.
