We have more news on injuries caused by Takata airbags. The US Department of Transportation has released a report on the tragic death of an Orlando woman. In the report, investigators claim that the victim’s fatal injuries were caused by “fragments of the inflator” as they were “projected rearward.” The report goes on to describe the care the victim received along with forensic analysis of the vehicles and the scene.
This is bittersweet news for the victim’s family, who have already filed a lawsuit against the manufacturers of the airbag and automobile. Honda and Takata deny allegations that they knew about the defects in their products and did nothing to fix them, though reports claim that the companies knew about the problems for 10 years.
The victim and her seven siblings immigrated to Orange County from Vietnam for a better life. Now they are fighting for that dream in one of the few ways left to them.
