Takata Air Bag Recall Lawsuit

Takata Corporation, a Japanese company which makes some of the air bags used by vehicle manufacturers as a safety measure. It is thought to have sold defective airbags to a minimum of 11 different vehicle makers since at least as far in the past as 2001. These particular airbags can explode or rupture and spray scraps, bits and fragments of metallic debris into the front seat passengers and the driver. Apparently, the first airbag shrapnel during deployment which got identified and reported was in 2004. However, airbag manufacturer Takata did not bother to issue any recall notices until sometime in 2008. Carabin Shaw’s San Antonio Takata Injury Lawyers are holding them to account on behalf of injured victims just like you. Give us a call for top notch assistance with your claim and/or lawsuit against the people who sent you out on the road with an unsafe vehicle.

Automotive experts became concerned that in high heat and/or high-humidity parts of the country, moisture can intrude into the inside of the airbag’s inflator mechanism and actually destabilize the chemical explosive used to deploy the bag in a crash. When wet or hot, propellant within the air bags is faulty and becomes unstable. It can even explode after a minor accident which would not normally deploy the airbag. The resulting explosion sends shards of metal flying into the vehicle cabin. Many unfortunate people have gotten blinded, severely injured or even killed after the faulty airbags spread plastic or metal shrapnel into the vehicle cabin. In or about October 2014, the U.S. government added 4.74 million vehicles sold by General Motors, Nissan, BMW, Mazda, Honda and Toyota to its list of vehicles recalled because they contain the faulty airbags made by Takata. These explosions are a serious issue related to safety. They can lead to death or serious injury. Anyone who owns a vehicle or vehicles which contain these Takata airbags are strongly urged to get their vehicle repaired as quickly as possible. If you have been victimized by one of these defective airbags, call Carabin Shaw’s San Antonio Takata Injury Lawyers. They are ready to help you get the best recovery allowed by law.

These Takata air bags and their defects have been linked to causing more than 100 injuries and at least four known deaths, beginning as far back as 2004.

The Federal NHTSA, in what most agree stands as quite strong language for this agency, says it is telling vehicle owners “with urgency” to get these recalled vehicles fixed immediately as “essential to personal safety.” If you have been injured by one of these airbags, you should call Carabin Shaw’s Takata Injury Attorneys in San Antonio today.

Is your particular Takata airbag covered under the recall?

Recent recalls in our country have keyed upon on cars registered or sold in territories and states with high temperatures and humidity. These may have been a factor which contributed to the failures. Those include the U.S. Virgin Islands, Puerto Rico, Texas, South Carolina, Mississippi, Louisiana, Hawaii, Georgia, Florida and Alabama.

However, some deaths causally linked to airbags which exploded have happened in non-humid states like California, Oklahoma and Virginia. Because these vehicles are older year models, it is quite likely that thousands of the vehicles containing defective airbags have been driven out of the states where the recalls were so far issued.
