The Vehicle you own and drive might contain Defective Dangerous Airbags made by Takata

Millions of otherwise innocent Americans drive cars which have defective airbags. These defective products, made by Takata, a Japan-based parts maker, shoot plastic and metal shards and shrapnel at passengers and drivers when they deploy, even in minor collisions. If this has happened to you, call one of our San Antonio Takata Airbag Injury Lawyers as soon as possible after your accident. The sooner we get started on your case, the better your chances of getting a full and fair recovery.

These defective airbags are known to have killed at least 16 innocent people and are known to have injured at least 100 more. These airbags are supposed to be there as a safety feature. Unfortunately, the metal fragments that could erupt because of the device’s defect are leaving people in quite unsafe situations.

Thus far, several individual auto manufacturers have issued recalls of a minimum of 28 million of these airbag’s inflation devices and the metal casings which contain ammonium nitrate propellant in roughly 34 million different vehicles. This makes it the biggest recall ever issued for autos and light trucks. Unfortunately there are several million more vehicles which have Takata-manufactured airbag inflation devices which have not been recalled yet.

To figure out which vehicles, and weather yours, are among the millions of vehicles recalled and find out what to do if it is or was one of your vehicles, please see the information below. Also, if you’re not sure if your accident was caused by or contributed to by a defective airbag, call one of Carabin Shaw’s San Antonio Takata Airbag Injury Lawyers for a free consultation to see if you may have a good case against any one of a number of possible defendants.

Affected vehicles include various models made by, Toyota, Subaru Saab, Pontiac, Nissan, Mitsubishi, Mazda, Lexus, Infiniti, Honda, Ford, Dodge, Chrysler, BMW and Acura.

What exactly is the Actual Problem with the Takata Airbags?

Over the passage of time, the explosive propellant which is responsible for initiating inflation during a crash deteriorates or can become unstable. This is especially true in states which have high average levels of ambient humidity, such as Hawaii and Florida, according to both the Federal and the voluntary recalls.

Carabin Shaw’s Takata Airbag Injury Attorneys in San Antonio know how these accidents work. We are familiar with the exact causes and effects of airbag failures. They can be severe.

If a crash occurs, the unstable airbag propellant can cause breakage of the metallic inflators within the Takata airbag and can shoot metal shrapnel or pieces into the cabin of the vehicle, putting the driver and any passengers at real risk of death or serious injury. A lawsuit against the car manufacturer, Takata or even a repairer, depending on the exact facts of your case can bring you compensation for:

  • Pain and suffering
  • Special accommodations such as medical equipment in your home or home health care aids
  • Lost wages
  • Both future and past medical bills

If you are acting suing because a loved one was killed in the accident because of an airbag made by Takata, you, on behalf of the loved one, and your family on their own may well be legally entitled to seek additional monetary compensation for:

  • Loss of services and support
  • Loss of consortium or companionship (marital benefits)
  • Funeral expenses

Each case has different exact facts, however, and the amount and type of compensation you could legally recover will differ depending on several factors, including your exact relationship to and with the deceased.
