Takata Airbag Recall
Takata Airbag Recall
AMA Law lawyers are aggressively taking charge and representing individuals who have been injured or killed by defective Takata airbags. Takata, a Japanese auto supplier, has been making airbags for many different vehicle brands since 2000, and they began being recalled by automakers in 2008. According to officials, many of the airbags are equipped with faulty inflator mechanisms that cause the airbags to rupture and release metal shrapnel when the airbag is deployed.

About the Recall
Takata is a Tokyo-based supplier of seat belts, airbags, steering wheels, and numerous other auto parts. Since 2001, they have sold the faulty airbags to approximately 10 different automakers, most of which are driven in the United States. A frightening statistic, the potentially deadly airbag defect has triggered the recall of some 16 million vehicles internationally since it was discovered in 2008. The recalls have affected vehicles from some of the top automakers across the globe, including Toyota, Honda, Mazda, BMW, Subaru, and Ford. The National Highway Traffic Administration (NHTSA) has issued a particular sense of urgency for vehicle owners in Florida, California, Hawaii, Texas, Louisiana, Alabama, Mississippi, Georgia, and South Carolina, due to the fact the defect is especially prominent in cars located in areas with high humidity.
According to the NHTSA, there have been four death and 139 injuries attributed to Takata airbags to date. This is a staggering number that is predicted to rise in the coming months. Because of this, if you own one of the affected vehicles, it is extremely important for you to take immediate action and bring your vehicle into the manufacturer.
