A bag’s incorrect deployment could cause an injury, or it could make an existing injury worse.
Details on operation of an air bag
As per the car manufacturers, there is wiring that connects the air bag and the crash sensor. If a collision takes place when a vehicle is traveling at speeds approaching 10 miles per hour, then the sensor signals a need for the bag’s deployment. At times of a severe crash, the sensor triggers a device called an igniter. It causes the production of either nitrogen or argon. Consequently, one of those 2 gases fills the deployed bag.
How air bags can threaten the health of those in a vehicle?
While stored in the vehicle, the bag starts to collect dust and chemicals in the air. That dust and those chemicals could get released, if the stored item were to be deployed at the time of a collision.
Threats created by malfunctioning device that could get deployed.
If bag’s deployment not necessary or premature, those in vehicle get exposed unnecessarily to dust and chemicals. The absence of a necessary deployment would expose a vehicle’s occupants to known dangers. Any delayed deployment would put a driver or passenger’s head too close to an opening bag.
The sorts of injuries that have become associated with an air bag’s failure to function properly
• Chemical burns
• An irritation of the lungs of an occupant in the affected vehicle
• An injury to the eye, possibly caused by a flying particle from a deployed bag
Proofs required from someone that has filed personal injury claim, after being injured by an air bag.
There are 2 proofs. The plaintiff must offer evidence to support one of those 2 proofs. Any proof that all or part of the bag had been created at a particular plant, and had been shipped to a dealer or auto parts shop, after coming out of the same plant.
Personal Injury Lawyer in Fort Erie know that it is proof that a bag or a part had relied on the introduction of a dangerous design. That introduction would have preceded the events of the manufacturing process. Naturally, either of the required proofs would have to be presented in the company of evidence that the poorly made or poorly designed item had indeed caused the plaintiff’s injury. It would not be enough to say that it almost caused an injury.
That is the rule that concerns the filing of any personal injury claim, when it has been triggered by a defective product. The defect had to be something that caused the affected product to do harm to the product’s user. That requirement supersedes all others, in cases where the alleged injury has resulted from deployment of an item that had been stored in some section of the vehicle’s interior space.
