Takata Airbag Defect Recall Lawsuit

Airbags save thousands of lives every year, as they were designed to help drivers and passengers in cars, SUVs and trucks survive crashes and collisions. Unfortunately, there are times when airbags are defective and wind up causing individuals more harm than good.

Recently it has come to light that airbags manufactured by Japanese Takata Corporation, have injured many vehicle occupants when internal metal components penetrated the airbag and metal shrapnel was launched into the driver’s face, neck, and throat. This metal shrapnel could cause severe disfigurements through cut arteries, facial injuries, and other fatal injuries.

Apart from the personal injury claims resulting from the defective Takata airbags, the recall also caused owners of the affected vehicles to suffer economic losses due to the vehicles’ reduced value.

Reports of over a dozen Takata air bag injuries and at least five deaths have been linked to this airbag defect. Due to the dangers brought about by these airbags, over 14 million vehicles throughout the United States and the rest of the world have been recalled.

Due to these losses, it is in a victim’s best interests to seek the services of a professional personal injury lawyer from The Law Offices of Philip DeBerard who can investigate your case and possibly file a class action lawsuit.
