Takata Airbag Recall – Am I Affected?

Firm Partner Appointed Lead Counsel for Personal Injury Track for Nationwide Takata Litigation

Questions on the Takata airbag recall? Our lawyers can help.More than 17 million vehicles in the US might have been voluntarily recalled by Honda and a number of other auto manufacturers because they contain air bags that, when deployed in an accident, are at risk of exploding and blasting metal shrapnel at the driver and passenger seats. Takata Corporation is the Japan-based manufacturer of the defective auto components. Many auto companies have issued recalls and notices about the defect, and, because of this, the makes and models of the vehicles involved in the recalls appear at the bottom of this page.

We have been keeping up to date with the Takata exploding airbag news and developments on our blog, and now our law firm is leading the way in holding these companies accountable for the damage they caused. Firm partner and accident attorney Curtis Miner has been appointed Lead Counsel for Personal Injury Track in the nationwide Takata Airbag Product Liability Litigation. Consequently, he welcomes anyone hurt by explosive airbag shrapnel to call his office and see how he can help. Our firm has a history of obtaining successful results for consumers injured by defective products in car accidents.

What Caused the Explosive Airbag Defects?

When a crash occurs, certain chemicals and devices work to inflate the airbag with air 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. This then caused them to react violently when crashes occured.

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. Furthermore, Takata may have even tried to destroy evidence proving so.

What Vehicles are Involved in the Takata Airbag Recall?

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. However, Takata has yet to follow through. This then resulted in several thousand dollars’ worth of fines being imposed by the NHTSA.

Manufacturers like Honda have issued voluntary recalls for vehicles containing the dangerous airbags. We have compiled a list of these vehicles, which appears below:
