You may wonder how something that is supposed to increase the safety of a vehicle and cause and accident and cause harm. While airbags do usually provide excellent protection in an accident and save lives, a number of actions can lead to an airbag causing an accident or inflicting damages upon a driver of passenger.
Some of the most-common issues which make airbags dangerous include:
- An airbag which does not open upon impact
- An airbag which opens for no probable cause, possibly due to faulty sensors

A wide range of serious injuries can occur when an airbag malfunctions. Some injuries that are common from these kinds of accidents include head/neck/spinal injuries, lacerations, bone fractures, burns and injuries to the eyes and ears due to the location of most airbags.
