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:

  • Honda
  • Acura
  • BMW
  • GM
  • Ferrari
  • Ford
  • Cadillac
  • Dodge
  • Chrysler
  • Infiniti
  • Jaguar
  • Jeep
  • Land Rover
  • Lexus
  • Lincoln
  • Mazda
  • Mercedes
  • Mercury
  • Mitsubishi
  • Pontiac
  • Toyota

Do You Have a Case?

When auto makers learn of defects in the manufacturing process that can affect the safety of drivers and passengers, they must act quickly to address them. When they fail or try to conceal that information from the public, victims of those deceptive practices can hold them accountable.

At The Law Office of Robert Starr, APC, getting justice for car buyers is what we focus on every day. Our work has resulted in hundreds of millions of dollars in compensation for our clients.

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 driving conditions.

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.

If you or a loved one has been a victim of this faulty airbag issue, we invite you to contact our Los Angeles airbag recall lawyers, no matter where you live in California. Few other firms share our experience and effectiveness when it comes to consumer protection legal services.
