Who Actually Is Takata?

Takata is a Japanese corporation which manufactures safety devices for automobiles including child safety seats, seat belt and, most importantly, airbags. The company made $6.4 billion in annual sales in the last fiscal year. Takata has 20% of worldwide airbag market.

What is the Actual Issue with Takata Airbags?

Many thousands of Takata manufactured airbags for autos and SUVs are legally defective. The defective airbags include both passenger side and driver side frontal air safety bags.

The exact specific issue with the airbags is that the explosive chemicals which are used to inflate the airbags have themselves been contaminated. This causes the explosive chemicals to break down over the span of time. Because of this, when an auto accident happens and a Takata made airbag is supposed to inflate, the explosive chemical reaction which is intended to inflate the airbag is so overly powerful that the bag itself ruptures, which causes bits and pieces of metal shrapnel to spray out of the airbag like bullets. The metal shrapnel can cause death or serious injury. This particular defect generates lawsuits after it causes injuries. Those who have been injured by defects in Takata airbags have recourse in the Texas’ courts. If you have such an injury, you should call the Takata Defect Attroneys in San Antonio today. We can fight for and with you to get you the best chance at the maximum available recovery for your injuries.

Exactly what Is the Airbag “Inflator?”

Three parts make up an automotive airbag: the bag itself, the sensor which causes it to inflate, and the mechanical device which actually inflates the bag. This is an “inflator.”

The inflator part of an airbag includes a container of gas, filled with nitrogen, which fills up the airbag, and the electronic equivalent of a match that ignites and blows up the gas, causing it to fill the bag as it expands.

What actually happened to the Takata Airbag Inflators?

It is currently believed that defects with the wafers shaped like “batwings” in the Takata inflators permit moisture to seep into the airbag over a span of time. This wetness changes the propellant’s chemical structure. Because of this, the propellants ignite far too quickly, causing an overreacting explosion which blows ruptures in the airbags and shoot metal shrapnel into vehicle driver and/or passengers.

What exactly is a Product Recall?

Product recalls are issued when manufacturers such as Takata asks the purchasers to return its products due to product defects or other safety issues which can endanger a consumer. The current series of Takata airbag recalls affects about 34 million autos, SUVs and Light Trucks and is probably the largest motor vehicle recall in American history.
