Injured by Defective Airbags?

The airbags - which are being investigated for a dangerous defect - have been associated with numerous injuries, as well as several deaths.

A Dangerous Defect

Takata Corporation has faced widespread scrutiny and mounting lawsuits for defective airbags that have been linked to multiple injuries and deaths. While the underlying defect is still being investigated, automakers and federal officials have stated that Takata airbags can malfunction and rupture when deployed.

Officials have reported that when Takata airbags improperly deploy and rupture during a crash, vehicle occupants can be injured by flying shrapnel. These injuries can include serious lacerations and disfigurement. There have also been reported cases of overly aggressive explosion of the airbags.

Millions of Vehicles Recalled

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), millions of vehicles have been recalled throughout the country. Because investigators have identified an issue involving exposure to high humidity, the NHTSA has also warned that consumers in certain states may face increased risks, including Florida, Texas, Hawaii, and states along the Gulf Coast.

In light of the growing number of recalls from auto manufacturers, the NHTSA issued a consumer advisory in October 2014 urging consumers who own vehicles recalled due to Takata airbags to take their vehicles in for immediate service. Recalled vehicles include a number of models from the following auto manufacturers.

  • General Motors
  • Ford
  • BMW
  • Chrysler
  • Mitsubishi
  • Nissan
  • Mazda
  • Honda
  • Toyota
  • Subaru
