Airbags commonly fail and are prone to some of the following defects:
- Deploying when they shouldn’t
- Failing to deploy after an collision
- Deploying in low speed collisions
- Not deploying quickly enough
- Deploying with too much force
Airbags are designed to deploy, or inflate, at excessive speeds around 100 MPH in the event of an accident. This force is known to cause injuries such as burns or bruises however, when airbags have one of the above malfunctions severe injuries can be the result. Ruptured eyeballs, blindness, and even death can be caused by a defective airbag. Children and smaller passengers are most commonly the victims of severe airbag injury after the airbag fails or is defective.
While the above is a short list of defects airbags may have, more often than not those defects are caused by a sensor failure. Sensor is the most common defect in airbags and also the reason many vehicles are recalled due to airbag issues.
