We broad sided a car that pulled out in front of us at about 40mph, the driver side airbag deployed but the passenger side did not. Luckily the seat belt saved me from going through the windshield, however had the airbag deployed like it was suppose to I wouldn't be on temporary disability and in the most pain I have ever experienced in my life. Major chest contusions, massive bruising across the chest and abdomen for weeks, strained back and neck and therapy for weeks are just a part of what I got to experience. Not to mention a lovely trip to the er because I had trouble breathing at the time of the accident.

The back seat belt behind the drivers seat did not lock up like it was suppose to on impacted, and my cousin hit the back of my seat and blacked out. Also, we hit head on to another car and the only airbag that went off was the drivers side and my husband was in the passenger seat. Luckily his seat belt locked up or he would have hit the windshield.

At point of collision, neither air bags deployed and seat belt did not work effectively to restrain my adolescent son. If the seat belt had restrained him properly and the air bag had indeed deployed; his teeth marks would not have been embedded into the dash. I firmly believe he and myself would not have suffered the amount of injuries if the mechanisms had worked properly. I had a head injury and whiplash, also.
