What Are Some Legal Grounds for Filing a Lawsuit Against Takata?
While there’s always a chance that a product could develop some defects somewhere down the road, Takata’s handling of the entire situation was reckless, to say the least. If the victims had proper information about the defective condition of these airbags, they would have refrained from using their vehicles until the necessary repairs were conducted. In short, these injuries and deaths were all preventable.
But Takata, like many other companies we’ve faced in and out of court, decided to put profits over human lives by refusing to disclose the defects in their airbags. Instead, they held this information for over a decade. That alone warrants a lawsuit.
Who Can Sue Takata for Their Defective Airbags?
Anyone who has been injured by these airbags can file a claim. The same applies to individuals who have lost a loved one due to the Takata airbags; they may have the option to file a wrongful death suit.
What Damages Can I Recover if I Win a Lawsuit Against Takata?
In most of these cases, plaintiffs have been able to recover compensation for various damages, including but not limited to the following:
- Medical expenses and costs associated with long-term care.
- Lost wages (including the loss of future earning potential).
- Pain and suffering resulting from the incident.
- Permanent disability or impairment caused by the injuries.
- The loss of enjoyment of life due to the incident.
- Emotional distress
Each case is different, which is why involving a Morgan and Morgan personal injury lawyer in Jacksonville is critical. They will review the specifics of your case and determine the exact damages you may be able to recover.
How Can I Recover Compensation?
The Takata Airbag Tort Compensation Trust Fund (TATCTF) came into existence when Takata filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy. This trust was founded to compensate individuals who have been injured or their loved ones killed due to Takata's defective airbags.
On top of that, the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Michigan established an additional fund to ensure that victims have access to the compensation they deserve. The bottom line is that you may have options to seek compensation for your injuries and damages; all you need now is a competent attorney. That’s where Morgan and Morgan comes in.
