The Effects of Airbag Deployment In Your Car Accident Claim
There’s little doubt the use of airbags as a life-saving feature has helped enhance the safety of many motor vehicles on the road today. Over the past two decades, front end airbags are now standard in any passenger vehicle. While this has improved overall mortality rates for individuals involved in traumatic crashes, there are still situations that interfere with the effectivity of this equipment.
Organizations like the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration have found drivers not wearing seatbelts and sensor malfunctions can interfere with airbag deployment when it matters most. Anytime a car accident involves airbag deployment or the lack thereof, it’s important to understand how this may affect your injury claim.
