Takata Airbag Injuries
Takata Airbag Recall
Update: Honda has announced a recall of possibly 1 million more vehicles which could have airbag defects, according to Reuters. An estimated 5 million vehicles have been recalled over the past few years because of potentially faulty airbags, reports Reuters. An airbag injury lawsuit involving a Georgia woman claiming blindness as a result of a faulty airbag may have contributed to the recall efforts. A recent claim was filed against Takata after a piece of frayed metal blew through the airbag after a crash and pierced the victim's leg.
Both filed and unfiled claims for airbag injuries and wrongful death may be eligible for compensation from Takata or the vehicle manufacturer, like Chrysler, BMW, Honda, and Toyota. You may still have an airbag injury case even if you were found at fault for causing the car accident, or if there was no insurance or inadequate insurance to fully compensate you for your injuries, or the wrongful death of a loved one.
Vehicle manufacturers may have been aware of prior complaints of faulty airbags prior to the recall, and may be responsible for any injuries or death caused by defective airbags. Additional information about important filing deadlines, requirements and settlement may be found by contacting our office.

Takata History and Potential Dangers
Takata is one of the world's leading suppliers of airbag systems. They began their development and research into airbags in 1976, according to Takata's website. Their airbag systems are designed to deploy upon an accident at certain specifications, which causes the airbag to rapidly inflate to protect the accident victim and decrease injuries.
According to a special report, Takata Corporation has been aware of potential faults in their airbags which have leg to several injuries and accidental death. Despite the significant number of claims, the many potentially faulty airbags may still be in millions of cars on the roads today. Even small car accidents can trigger airbag deployment, which could turn a very minor accident into a fatal car accident if a faulty Takata airbag shoots shrapnel into the victim's neck or chest. Honda was allegedly aware of at least 30 injuries and 2 deaths as a result of a Takata airbag.
Takata's own research and development team is charged with using computational crash simulation and dynamic crash testing for safety system development, prior to allowing their airbags to be placed in vehicles used by the public.
The Takata airbags are manufactured by Tokyo, Japan-based Takata Corporation, a company established in 1933, according to their website. Takata has an estimated 56 plants in 20 countries, and is in the business of manufacturing and sale of motor vehicle seat belts, airbags, steering wheels, interior trims, and child restraint systems.
