A product recall involving the Takata Airbag involves greater than 14,000,000 vehicles manufactured between 2000 and 2011. The potential harm that the Takata Airbag poses relates to the emission of dangerous plastic and metal particles when the airbag is deployed. These dangerous particles have caused serious injuries, including permanent scarring, serious brain and spinal injury, and even death. If you or a loved one has been injured by a Takata Airbag please contact our lawyers today for a free and confidential consultation.
Evidence has been brought to light that Takata knew of this dangerous defect even prior to it placing millions of these airbags into motor vehicles through a secret safety test in 2004; however, Takata failed to report these dangerous findings to the government or car manufacturers. Certain whistleblowers have stated that high level Takata employees ordered the deletion of these test results and destruction of the airbags used in this secret test.
