Head Injury After an Airbag Deploys


Airbags are put into our cars and trucks today to keep us safe. The airbag is set and configured to deploy as soon as the system identifies a crash. The airbag in a vehicle was first set to be a passive safety feature, that would potentially save lives and prevent occupants in a vehicle from being thrown around during a collision.

The four types of motor vehicle crash events that will injure a driver or passenger in the vehicle are when:

  • The vehicle hits another object.
  • The driver or passenger who is unrestrained hits the inside of the vehicle.
  • The occupants or driver in the vehicle’s organs hit the enclosed body wall or cavity of the body during a crash (brain hitting the skull, etc.).
  • The occupants or driver in a vehicle are hit by loose objects flung around in a vehicle during a crash.
How Does an Airbag Work During a Crash?

The airbag works on a sensor that is directly hooked up to the internal computer of the vehicle. When the sensor feels a sudden deceleration of the car or truck, it will deploy. It is mean to prevent the person in the vehicle from hitting the hard surfaces of the vehicle during a crash. The airbags pop up quickly upon impact, and are placed in the dashboard to protect the front seat passenger, the steering wheel housing to protect the driver, and in the side panels to protect the occupants with “side curtain airbag” protection during a crash.

The airbags sense deceleration of the vehicle and deploy, which triggers a charge to inflate and then deflate the bag quickly to protect the occupants of a vehicle. There are vents in the airbag to allow immediate deflation of the airbag. But these sensors need to be set properly, and the airbag must not have a defect, or there can be an issue in how the airbags deploy.

Why Are People Injured with Airbags, Aren’t They Supposed to be Protected by the Airbag?

This is a fair question, yes, the airbags are meant to always protect someone in a collision when it deploys in a vehicle during a crash. But the airbag can also hurt you, when it does deploy during a collision. The airbag works with the seatbelt restraints, and the seatbelt will cinch or tighten (the same sensors tell it to) during a crash. For this reason, the force of a too tight seatbelt, the deployed airbag and other factors affecting the person in a car or truck during a crash can actually seriously injure the person in an accident.
