AirBag Injuries: Can my airbag hurt me?
Can my airbag hurt me?
A: Yes, improperly designed airbags and restraint systems can cause airbag injuries and even kill car occupants involved in a wreck. Airbags must be fully inflated before the crash victim’s head and torso impact the airbag.
Airbags inflate at up to 200mph so if a person’s body reaches the airbag before it is fully inflated, the rapidly moving airbag can cause serious injury to the body part it contacts.
