Do you know that airbags deploy at a rapid speed? It inflates in 1/20th of a second, which can be literally comparable to the blink of an eye, according to the National Highway Safety Administration. Airbags are installed in cars to save lives and protect passengers but it may also cause facial injuries during a car accident.
Airbag injuries are declining because of the latest innovations and technology, according to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS). However, when passengers or drivers sit too close to the steering wheel, then they are still vulnerable to facial disfigurement, lacerations, and scars once the front airbags inflate.
Facial injuries are still a tragic outcome for car accident victims. The scars are not just a physical reminder of the trauma of what happened to them. The scars also change their appearance, which can be an emotional burden for victims. It affects their self-confidence and self-esteem and, in some cases, the quality of their lives as the scars become the very facial feature that defines and opens them to ridicule and stares.
