Takata Issues Over-Due Airbag Recall, As Gilman Law LLP Urges Those Allegedly Injured by Exploding Airbags to Seek Legal Advice Now

Gilman Law LLP, a leading law firm representing the victims of defective automobiles and other

consumer products, is investigating Takata airbag lawsuits, following the recall of more than 34 million

vehicles outfitted with potentially defective and deadly airbags. According to the National Highway

Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), Takata airbags, which are installed in, among others, Honda,

Toyota, Ford, GM, and Nissan vehicles, can explode violently when they deploy, sending shrapnel flying

into a car’s passenger compartment. Such accidents have been tied to at least six deaths and more than

100 injuries.

Gilman Law LLP is currently representing a 40-year-old Massachusetts woman who lost an eye after the

Takata airbag in her Honda vehicle allegedly exploded upon deployment. Our attorneys believe that she

and other individuals who sustained injuries in similar accidents may be entitled to significant financial

compensation. However, potential claimants should be aware that all personal injury claims, including

Takata airbag lawsuits, are subject to strict statutes of limitations that vary by state. Individuals seeking

to file suit against Takata are urged to contact Gilman Law LLP today, TOLL FREE at 888-252-0048, to

ensure that their right to recovery is not placed in jeopardy.

The Takata Airbag Recall

According to the NHTSA, Takata has agreed to a national recall of certain types of frontal driver and

passenger side air bag inflators used in vehicles manufactured by BMW, Chrysler, Daimler Trucks, Ford,

General Motors, Honda, Mazda, Mitsubishi, Nissan, Subaru and Toyota. These inflators were made with

a propellant that can degrade over, which could cause the airbag to explode upon deployment. Faulty

Takata airbags have been blamed for six deaths worldwide, and more than 100 injuries.

The New York Times reported on May 19th that Takata was aware for over a decade that ammonium

nitrate, the explosive material used in its airbags, was sensitive to moisture and temperature swings. As

early as 2000, consumers filed complaints with the NHTSA suggesting that Takata airbags were

rupturing. As awareness of the problem grew at Takata, company officials ordered tests in 2004 that

showed signs of defects. But the test results were never reported to federal safety regulators.

According to Gilman Law LLP, alleged victims of Takata airbag injuries may be entitled to recover

damages for:
