Reaching Beyond Malaysia to the U.S.- Takata Recall Thickens

In July 2014, a 42 year-old mother was involved in a low-speed crash. She was crossing an intersection on Borneo Island, Malaysia when another driver collided with her car, and her airbag deployed. She later died at the hospital with a shrapnel wound to the neck, allegedly caused by a defective airbag included in the Takata recall.

How Does an Accident in Malaysia Affect Me?

This woman was half a world away from our lives here in the US, but her father has filed his grievances here in Florida. He joins a multitude of cases already open against Takata Corp. and Honda Motor Co. His daughter, mother to a 10 year-old boy, was also pregnant when the accident occurred. She delivered in the hospital while being treated for her injuries, and the baby died three days later.

This man’s losses are all too familiar. Incidents related to this case have been reported from all around the world. Five deaths and 139 injuries are suspected of being linked to this suit. Eighty-five of these cases have been consolidated in a Miami federal court, and Colson Hicks Eidson has been appointed as lead counsel in the case.
