Hit my face on steering wheel in wreck 8 days ago.Middle inside of nose very tender,when moved makes front teeth&jaw hurt. Is this normal?
Face and hands: Face and hand injuries are common after airbag deployment. Abrasions and bruises around the face are common, and occasionally the nose may be broken. Occasionally, the hot gases escaping from the airbag may produce first degree burns. If you are wearing glasses or sunglasses, you may also get a few lacerations. Hand injuries are also common, especially if your hands are high on the steering wheel. ...Read more
A baby can be killed by a front airbag, but has any adult driver been killed by an exploding airbag, due to sitting too close to the steering wheel?
Absolutely.: This is a well-known cause of injury: a front seat driver or passenger who is not wearing his/her seatbelt and has a front-end collision, is at significant risk of death. Rapid acceleration of the airbag, in a crashing vehicle (rapid deceleration), causes a much bigger force than when a seatbelt is worn. The two forces are just too much.
