Takata Airbag Injuries
Florida residents who were involved in accidents in automobiles manufactured by BMW, Chrysler, Ford, Honda, Mazda, Mitsubishi, Nissan and Toyota, may have been victims of defective air bags in models made by the above automakers. The automakers are conducting limited regional recalls for cars that use Takata airbags.
There have been reports of incidents in Florida with Takata airbags where air bag inflator ruptures have resulted in injuries to drivers and passengers due to shrapnel that is released when the Takata airbag is fired during an auto accident. If you have received injuries such as facial cuts or contusions, eye injuries or lacerations to the neck and chest due to defective Takata airbags, you may be due compensation.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration was notified by the auto manufacturers of recalls to vehicles using Takata airbags. The injury-causing incidents involving these airbags have been extended nationwide and is currently the largest nation car recall in the history of the United States. The NHTSA believes that hot, humid conditions in Florida and Puerto Rico factor into the higher instance of injuries caused by defective Takata airbags.
