In the last two years, move than 10 auto manufacturers have had at least 7.8 million vehicles recalled because of a potentially deadly serious air bag malfunction. At least since 2008, many auto manufacturers have had to issue waves of product recalls which relate to Takata manufactured air bags which they installed after their being made by Japanese manufacturing firm Takata. These recalls are intended to fix very similar defects in the air bag installed in almost 10 million vehicles in our United States by itself. This nearly decade long series of recalls and the large number of vehicles it has affect affected complicate the actual issues involved in the recalls. Consumers and auto buyers are naturally concerned. Lawsuits have been filed. Carabin Shaw’s San Antonio Airbag Defect Lawyers are in the thick of things. We are filing suit and going after the full legally available recovery for our clients. If you have been injured by a defective airbag, give us a call and we can meet with you, free of charge and see if you have a good case for recovery from the airbag or vehicle manufacturer.

The air bags which are at issue can endanger both you and/or your loved ones. Both passengers and drivers are at real risk in certain General Motors, Ford, Chrysler, Subaru, Mitsubishi, Nissan, BMW, Mazda, Honda and Toyota vehicles. If there is a crash, these particular air bags made by Takata can really explode, throwing metal fragments and shards at both drivers and passengers. Because of this, the Federal National Highway and Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) urged owners to act without delay on any recall notices they receive or hear about and replace the potentially defective air bags. If you had an accident and got hurt because of these defective airbags, please call the San Antonio Airbag Defect Lawyers at Carabin Shaw. We can help you in this tough fight against the big companies to get you the compensation which you deserve and the law allows. Call us today.

THE DANGERS OF THE DEFECT AND WHAT YOU REALLY NEED TO KNOW

During any type of accident, the airbag inflator inside the mechanism can actually explode. It then sprays metal fragments and shards into the vehicle and at the driver and the passengers. The underlying cause of this particular fracture isn’t currently known. However, it is speculated that the explosive chemicals used as propellant in the middle of the air bags can deteriorate due to the passage of time, from moisture or from flaws in the production process. This deterioration can create a very unstable mix of chemical explosives that goes off with far more force actually intended by the designer or the manufacturer. Some others think that the defect results from deterioration of the inflator itself through rust or other some other form of deterioration. While, so far, the actual exact cause of these problems appears to remain unknown with certainty, good reports do indicate that Takata itself has had knowledge of these problems for at least ten years. Both Takata itself and the U.S. auto manufacturers have failed in their duty to theirs consumers and the public by inadequately, at best, warning them about the risks connected to these faulty air bags. Carabin Shaw’s Airbag Defect Attorneys in San Antonio are holding these companies liable.

We only take a legal fee as a percentage of what we recover for you. If we don’t get you a recovery, we don’t get a legal fee.

The initial recall on the defective air bags wasn’t actually issued until 2013, despite the claims that Takata knew all too well that the airbags were dangerous and defective in 2004. Additional airbag, and thus vehicle, recalls have been issued over the months in 2014. The actual scope of these recalls is so large that auto manufacturer Toyota has admitted that the supplies needed for replacement are basically not available. According to some news stories, Toyota has issued instructions to its dealers that, if replacement airbags are unavailable, the dealers should turn off the bag on the passenger side and affix a “Do Not Sit Here” sticker in the car until such time as the replacement airbags can actually be installed.

Even now, almost a decade after the defect was discovered, drivers and passengers are still getting hurt.
