Airbag Recall Attorneys for Exploding Takata Systems
As most have heard by now, Takata airbags have been recalled. Shrapnel (jagged, but razor-like metal pieces) from exploding airbags have killed and maimed numerous unsuspecting drivers and passengers across the country. One local Florida young man was even considered by the police to be the prime suspect in the death of his girlfriend. The police thought her throat had been cut by her boyfriend and she was then placed in her car to stage an accident. Though the police may have watched one too many episodes of CSI, the outcome for this young man was almost a total life altering disaster. Not only did he lose his soon to be wife and best friend, he was on the verge of being charged with murder.
There are nearly 8 million vehicles in the U.S. that are involved. Not only did Takata manufacture a defective and deadly airbag which, upon exploding, sprays razor-like metal pieces throughout the vehicle ripping through your face, eyes, torso, and legs, sufficient to kill or maim, it also did so while failing to keep adequate records and thus the number of involved vehicles is a fluid number and may grow even higher.
The metal canister that inflates the airbag gets too hot and bursts while inflating. It explodes like a grenade. Takata has known for more than 10 years, but has refused to address this obvioulsy serious problem.
