Airbags provide a cushion in the event of an accident, preventing passengers from suffering severe injuries caused by violent contact with the hard surfaces of the car interior. Although airbags have the potential to be tremendously beneficial, when these devices or the systems that deploy them fail due to defect or malfunction, the consequences can be devastating. An airbag may fail to deploy, or it may be triggered prematurely, or too late to protect a vehicle’s occupants. Airbags release at a very high speed, and when they do so incorrectly may cause injuries such as whiplash and broken bones.
