Takata airbag recall
Takata Will Recall Even More Airbag Inflators
July 17, 2017
As if its current problems with bankruptcy, corruption, lawsuits, and decimated public opinion weren’t enough, embattled airbag manufacturer Takata has announced that it will recall an additional 2.7 million airbag inflators that have been installed in Ford, Mazda, and Nissan vehicles.
Faulty Takata airbag inflators have been linked with at least 11 deaths in the U.S. The company, whose products are the subject of the largest automotive recall in American history, recently declared bankruptcy after agreeing to pay a fine of $1 billion in a criminal lawsuit.
Takata is recalling the new wave of airbag inflators because Ford, Mazda, and Nissan conducted tests that indicate that the devices are at risk of the explosions that have injured and killed many drivers and passengers. The devices did not fail per se in the tests, but demonstrated telltale signs of imminent failure.
The affected vehicles include around 6000 Mazda B-series trucks, more than 627,000 Nissan Versas, and an unspecified number of Ford vehicles.
If your health, or that of someone you love, has been put in jeopardy by a faulty Takata airbag, or any other piece of defective automotive technology, you may be entitled to financial compensation. Contact the expert attorneys at TheLawFirm.com to learn how we can help you.
