Recalling Affected Vehicles
BMW and several Japanese carmakers issued recalls of 3.6 million cars with Takata airbags in 2013. In 2014, many others – including Toyota, Chrysler, Mazda, Nissan, Honda, and Ford – recalled millions more.
These recalls were made after numerous reports recounted that the Takata airbags were prone to exploding when deployed. This explosion led sent shrapnel and chemicals flying throughout the cabin and caused serious – even fatal – injuries.
Concerns about Takata’s Airbag Manufacturing
Developed in the late 1990s, Takata’s airbags were introduced to vehicles starting in 1998. The defective airbag was created with an explosive that would go off and inflate the bag in the event of a collision. Though this inflating propellant is cheap and accessible, it is also exceptionally volatile.
Allegedly, Takata actually knew about the deadly defect for several years but failed to inform the public. Instead, the company concealed test results showing how the airbags exploded and the effect of their deadly force.

It can be difficult to know if you have a valid claim. Simply owning a car with a Takata airbag does not make you eligible for a lawsuit. It’s also not enough to have just been in an accident where an airbag deployed.
