Airbag manufacturer and automakers sued in the US

Posted on November 4, 2014 10:44 am under Automotive Defects

Takata Corp. and ten individual automakers are facing a class action lawsuit in the U.S. over allegations of knowingly selling vehicles equipped with potentially dangerous airbags, an article on BBC News reported October 28.

The airbag manufacturer and the automakers that used Takata’s products in their vehicles allegedly concealed the safety issues that resulted in millions of vehicles being recalled worldwide. Cases of deaths and injuries likely caused by the defective airbags were reported. The injuries were caused by airbags exploding and expelling metal shrapnel due to a problematic inflator. Automaker giants like General Motors and Toyota were some of the defendants in the class action suit filed in Florida.
