Who can make a Takata airbag injury claim or file an airbag injury lawsuit?

Any person injured by a Takata airbag may be eligible to make an injury claim against Takata.  This is true even if you were the one who caused the crash that led to the airbag to deploy or even if you have already settled an injury case with the at-fault driver who caused the crash.  These are defective product claims against Takata, who negligently designed and manufactured the airbag deployment system.

What is the defect in the Takata airbag that caused injury?

The defect in the Takata airbag involves the inflator.  When the airbag is triggered during a crash to deploy, there is a mini explosion in the inflator that causes the airbag to deploy from the steering wheel housing.  Because of the defect, the mini explosion is much more powerful than it should be and the explosion causes pieces of metal and plastic to be shot out into the vehicle like shrapnel from a grenade explosion.  The flying shrapnel causes cuts, lacerations and even penetration injuries to the people sitting in the vehicle.

What types of injuries do I need to have a claim? 

The most common injuries we see are cuts, lacerations and puncture wounds.  These wounds are caused by the flying metal and plastic shrapnel that shoot out into the vehicle when the airbag deploys.  We have recovered money for people who have scarring on their head, face, neck, chest and arms.  When a person suffers these types of wounds and there has been no glass breakage in the crash, we look to see if we can show the injuries came from the airbag deployment.  In certain cases, we have also recovered money for people who suffered from broken bones, internal injuries and severe burns.  If you suffered injuries from an airbag, call us for a free case review to see if your injuries may have been caused by a defective Takata airbag.

What does it cost to have an attorney review my case?

Nothing.  We offer free, no obligation case reviews.  If we get the specific facts surrounding your crash and airbag injuries and we can help you, you owe us nothing unless we get you a recovery of money from Takata.  If we cannot help you get a recovery of money for your airbag injuries, you owe us NOTHING.

How do I know if my vehicle had a defective Takata airbag?

Call us if your suffered an injury from an airbag.  We can help you determine if the airbag that injured you was made by Takata.  You may be surprised to learn that Takata airbags are in 42 million vehicles from 19 different automakers.  These include:  Acura, Audi, BMW, Cadillac, Chevrolet, Chrysler, Dodge, Ford, GMC, Honda, Infinity, Jaguar, Jeep, Land Rover, Lexus, Lincoln, Mazda, Mercedes, Mitsubishi, Nissan, Saab, Subaru, Tesla, Toyota, Volkswagen.

Is this a class action lawsuit where you can only expect a small settlement equal to the small amount received by others?

No.  These are not class action cases.  Takata airbag lawsuits have been consolidated in U.S. District Court in Miami as a Multi-District Litigation (MDL). This is a legal procedure that allows individual cases to be consolidated with other similar cases, and then the cases can be evaluated and processed individually in a framework chosen for the MDL.  These are not small class action settlements where each injured person gets the same small amount of money.  Each case stands on its own, and each person is compensated based on the severity of his or her own injuries.  Our experienced legal team has already settled many of these Takata airbag injury cases for clients for substantial compensation.

What time limits apply to filing a Takata airbag injury claim? 

There are time limits that apply to these claims.  The time limit is determined by the law of the state involved.  We will help you determine if the time to file your Takata claim is still open.  However, do not delay in contacting us!  We have seen people with airbag injury claims lose out on the ability to recover substantial money from Takata because they just waited too long to contact us.
