Angry inadvertent active headrest deployment

I was wondering if anyone has had a problem with the headrest safety feature deploying when the car was not involved in an accident? I have a 2006 cls500 with 4000 miles. It has been in the shop 7 weeks due to deployment of headrest safety feature. The noise was sooo loud and I was struck by the headrest. Enough to cause accident because I wasn't expecting it. They cant find what happened so they are trying to blame me. Any ideas?

Iv had to reset many headrests before. All do to the driver driving like a jack@$$. Most common is driving over a speed bump too fast.

That's wild. About how fast do you have to be going to have one of these go off?

Not really sure. I havent had it happen to me while driving. I would say it depends on the speed bumps. I think it happens more on those longer speed bumps that you can do like 30mph over.
