There is no question that airbags save lives in serious motor vehicle accidents. But when the airbags themselves cause more injuries and deaths than the accident, itself, might have, the manufacturer must be held accountable.
Injuries From Takata Airbags
Takata Corporation is one of the world's largest manufacturers of airbags installed in a high percentage of cars on American roads today. Takata has been in the news lately because of a number of injuries and deaths resulting from improper functioning and failure to operate properly. To the corporation's credit, they have issued a recall to repair and replace their defective product. While the recall is commendable, it does not relieve them of liability in the event a road accident or death can be directly attributed to their malfunctioning airbag.
Common types of injuries from defective airbags include:
- Broken teeth
- Detached retina
- Spinal cord and neck injuries
- Nerve damage
