What is wrong with the Takata Airbags

There are legally defective airbags on Texas’ road today. People are getting injured by these defective airbags. Carabin Shaw’s San Antonio Takata Airbag Claim Lawyers are holding both the airbag manufacturer, Takata, and the various auto companies which installed the defective airbags to liability. We are making them pay. If you have been injured by one of these airbags, you should get compensation.

The legally defective airbags which were/are manufactured by Japanese company Takata have been held responsible for at least one hundred injuries and four deaths. Nissan, an auto manufacturer, the solid propellant chemicals used in the Takata airbags at issue has a habit of deteriorating over a period of time, particularly under high temperature and humidity environmental conditions. As the explosive propellant starts to degrade, it begins to build up higher than normal pressure within the metal inflator housing, which causes it to explosively rupture. When the defective air bag attempts to deploy, metal shards and fragments are thrown like shrapnel through the airbag, into the front area of the vehicle and at the driver and/or passengers in the vehicle at the time. If you have been injured by such an accident, call Carabin Shaw’s San Antonio Takata Airbag Claim Lawyers today. They are familiar with the airbags and the problems you may or will encounter in trying to get fair compensation for your injuries. We are here to fight on your side against the big companies you have to sue to get a fair settlement.

What Kinds of Injuries Have People Suffered from these Takata Airbags?

When the defective Takata airbags try to deploy (in some cases, without any warning and explosively), the metal parts inside the bag itself turn into shrapnel. This debris is easily capable of tearing into bone or flesh. Most of the serious injuries are suffered in the upper body and the face. In one case in California, police who arrived at the accident scene first thought that the victim driver had actually been shot in his face. In Orlando the police actually believed that the driver had been the victim of a knife attack and started a criminal investigation until the victim’s autopsy revealed plastic and metal fragments embedded in her neck area.

How did something like this happen?

As you will find out if you call one of our Takata Airbag Claims Attorneys in San Antonio, the situation in these cases is what it frequently is. When things involve product liability, victims' injuries are in the end results of a greedy manufacturer trying to increase profits by reducing costs and cutting corners. In or about 2001, Takata switched away from the original chemical propellant to an alternative that was less-expensive, ammonium nitrate. This compound, used by in the bombing of the Federal building located in Oklahoma City in 1995, becomes unstable in the when exposed to humidity and heat. It has caused many fatal accidents in the past 100 years or so. Professor Paul Worsey, an expert in mining and explosives at Missouri University of Science and Technology, told a reporter for the New York Times that the compound “ammonium nitrate” “shouldn't be used in airbags.” He added, “but it's cheap, unbelievably cheap.” If you have potentially been the victim of this cheap defective explosive as used in airbags, call the Takata Airbag Claims Attorneys in San Antonio at Carabin Shaw. We will help you make Takata pay for being cheap and cutting corners and you being the victim of this. No one hates a big company for being big or being a company. Big companies, however, should pay for their mistakes.
