The product liability lawyers at The Carlson Law Firm are currently investigating potential lawsuits for individuals injured or killed by Takata airbags throughout the United States.
A design defect with the airbag inflator—a metal cartridge containing chemical propellant—can cause the inflator to rupture and shoot out metal shards, seriously injuring vehicle occupants.
Roughly 40 million vehicles containing Takata airbags require repairs as part of the largest auto safety recall in American history. That number continues to grow. Internal company emails show that employees had concerns dating back to 2006—nine years before the recall was issued.
Defective airbags made by Takata have been linked to 11 deaths and over 180 injuries in the United States alone.
Plaintiffs claim that, as a result of Takata’s negligence, they suffered injuries that could have been prevented. If you or someone you loved has suffered because of a Takata airbag, we can help you.
