Faulty Airbag Injury Compensation Claims Information

If you’ve been involved in a road traffic accident (RTA), and your airbag has failed to deploy, you may be entitled to claim compensation. You can also claim faulty airbag injury compensation if your airbag has deployed when it shouldn’t have done. Overall, airbags are great pieces of safety equipment which have helped to save lives in all manner of road traffic accidents. However, if they aren’t fitted correctly, or the airbag itself is faulty, then they can lead to serious injuries and even wrongful death. Here at Tylers Solicitors, we can help you to claim faulty airbag injury compensation claims following any kind of RTA.

The amount of compensation that you may be entitled to receive depends on a range of different factors. The most important factors are how severe your injuries are and to what extent these injuries can be blamed on the airbag. If an airbag deployed which caused your injuries without an associated road traffic accident, you are likely to have a stronger case and seek a higher level of compensation.

Burned by Airbag Combustion Compensation Amounts
When your airbag deploys, it is possible for the speed of the deployment, or issues with the combustion, to leave you with noticeable burns. These burns can be relatively minor, but in some cases, they can leave you with permanent scarring and even long-term health conditions. A faulty airbag can deploy with too much pressure, or combust during deployment, which can easily lead to serious burns. The amount of compensation you will be able to claim for depends on the severity of the burns and any long-term health conditions.

Facial Damage Following Faulty Airbag Deployment Compensation Amounts
One of the primary benefits of airbags is that they protect your face and head during a road traffic accident. However, if these airbags are faulty, they sometimes will not deploy, or deploy in such a way that your head and face is unprotected. A faulty airbag can lead to a range of serious head and facial issues, including scarring, damage to teeth, jaw fractures, loss of hearing, eye injuries and more.

Chest Injuries Due to Faulty Airbag Deployment Compensation Amounts
Some of the chest injuries you might suffer from following a defective airbag deployment (or lack of deployment) can be incredibly serious. In some cases, a faulty airbag during a road traffic accident can lead you to suffer from crushed lungs, broken ribs and more cosmetic issues like serious bruises or scarring. In some cases, chest injuries caused by faulty airbags can even life threatening or lead to long-term health conditions.
£3,150 to £131,620
Wrongful Death Caused by Faulty Airbag Compensation Amounts
In the worst circumstances, it is possible for a faulty airbag to lead to a wrongful death. Airbags are an essential piece of safety equipment in any road traffic accident. If they failed to deploy, and the RTA resulted in a wrongful death of a loved one, you may be entitled to claim compensation. When it comes to wrongful deaths, there are many different factors taken into consideration, including age of the deceased, role in your household and dependants.
