In the years between 1990 and 2006 it was reported that more than 260 people had died through airbags that had deployed in crashes at low speeds. Air bags are usually added as supplemental devices and can save lives when deployed in the right manner. However, although the airbag can save lives, it can also lead to accidental deaths. Airbags are usually designed so that in crashes classified as moderate and serious, they can deploy, but there are some airbags that do not normally deploy if they are faulty. If a faulty airbag does not deploy, serious injuries can occur, and at the same time, if the airbag deploys at low speeds, it can also cause injuries. Some of the injuries that one may get due to air bag deployment may include blindness, trauma injuries, chemical burns, hearing damage, broken bones, and contusions.
