Find Out if You Are at Risk
Most people are unaware if their car contains a defective airbag. The current
number of vehicles that need airbag inflator replacements before 2019
is at 100 million, and so far, less than 8 million of them have been replaced,
leaving those that don’t know about the defect in harm's way.
To check if your specific vehicle is included in the recall,
visit the NHTSA's website and enter your VIN.
The Takata airbag recall is the largest
auto defect recall in U.S. history. To date, there have been more than 100 injuries and 10
deaths resulting from the faulty Takata airbags. Many of these have been
in low-speed crashes that the driver should have easily walked away from.
The defective Takata airbag inflator may cause airbags to deploy explosively
and spray shrapnel from the metal cartridge loaded with propellant wafers
inside the inflator. When the faulty inflator housing explodes in a crash,
whether minor or severe, metal shards from the defective Takata airbag
spray the passenger cabin and immediately impact the driver.
The following automobiles have been included in the Takata airbag recall:
- Land Rover

public, victims of those deceptive practices can hold them accountable.

is what we focus on every day. Our work has resulted in hundreds of millions

Nissan Frontier Airbag Problems
The massive Takata airbag recall has received a lot of news coverage because
of the gruesome way the exploding airbags injure and kill drivers. In
a case involving the Nissan Frontier, Nissan had designed airbags for
Frontiers in model years 2007-2014 that deployed from the sides of the
car in the event of rollover accidents. However, a defect in the manufacturing
of the airbag made them overly sensitive, leading to deployment in normal
In this case, the California woman who originally filed the suit said she
was driving when the side airbags suddenly deployed, leaving her Frontier
unsafe to drive. While this woman escaped injury, an airbag that deploys
while the vehicle is in motion could cause a serious accident that endangers
the safety of the driver and passengers.
Uncovering the Right Evidence to Prove Negligence
To prevail in a case like this requires attorneys who know how to prove
that the auto manufacturer acted negligently in failing to inform customers.
In this case, evidence includes extensive consumer complaints, the owner's
manual, internal testing records, and dealer repair records.
