Takata Airbag Recall – Is My Car Affected?

"Colson Hicks Eidson is recognized as one of the top litigation firms in the country, handling local, national and international litigation for a wide range of clients." - Chambers USA

Car Accident Attorneys Explain What To Do

More than 11 million vehicles might have defective air bags that explode and blast metallic shards at the driver and passenger seats. Takata Corporation is the Japanese manufacturer of the allegedly defective auto components. Many auto companies have issued recalls and notices about the defect, and the makes and models of vehicles involved in the recall appear at the bottom of this page.

Attorney Curt Miner, partner at Colson Hicks Eidson, has been appointed one of four Lead Counsel by the Miami court overseeing the nationwide Takata Airbag Product Liability Multidistrict Litigation for the Personal Injury Track. If you have been hurt in an accident involving a Takata airbag, reach out to Attorney Curt Miner, who will be happy to discuss your potential claim with you and your family. Our firm only takes cases on a contingency fee basis, meaning our firm will only receive attorney fees and costs if and when we are successful in obtaining a settlement or verdict.

What Caused the Airbag Defects?

When a crash occurs, certain chemicals and devices work to inflate the airbag at a high rate of speed. According to investigations into these claims, the defects occur in the inflator and propellant devices. The chemicals used in this process were allegedly stored and handled incorrectly, causing them to react violently when crashes occur.

In April of 2013, Takata announced that the parts were defective. However, a report from the New York Times suggests that the company knew about the defects as early as 2004, and may have even tried to destroy evidence that proved employees knew about the defects. Takata denies these claims.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) ordered Takata to issue a sweeping recall across the nation for all makes and models containing defective parts.
