Takata Airbag Injuries in Bradenton
Popular automotive parts manufacturer Takata Corporation has been in the spotlight recently for manufacturing defective airbags. So far, in the United States alone, at least 27 people have died as of October 2023, and over 500 seriously injured by these defective airbags.
As a driver or passenger in a vehicle fitted with airbags, you always count on this feature to offer some form of protection in the event of an accident. The last thing you expect is the same feature you count on to protect you to double up as your source of pain or the reason you’re mourning the death of your loved one.
But that has been the case for some individuals and families. Even worse is the ghastly nature of these accidents. One report on CNN revealed the shocking details of these accidents.
Per the report, first responders thought the victim had suffered gunshot or stab wounds to the face, only to discover later that these resulted from shrapnel flying into the victim after the airbags exploded. Other reports have shown that these airbags have exploded, and on numerous occasions, in situations where they shouldn’t have.
The result? Serious injuries and deaths.
