Takata Airbag Injuries in Pensacola
Airbags are supposed to limit the impact of a car accident. But for certain vehicles, that has not been the case. Popular automobile parts manufacturer Takata has been in the spotlight recently for manufacturing and distributing faulty airbags. This has led to the largest safety recall in the history of the United States. To this day, more than 67 million Takata airbag inflators have been recalled in the US alone, and over 100 million worldwide.
This recall targets vehicles manufactured between the year 2002 through 2015. If you or a loved one suffered serious Takata airbag injuries in Pensacola after a car accident in which the airbags were defective, you may be able to take legal action against the manufacturer. Contact Morgan and Morgan today to learn more.

What Is the Problem With Takata Airbags?
The biggest safety concern with these airbags is that they use ammonium nitrate-based propellant without a chemical drying agent. As a result, factors such as high temperatures, environmental moisture, and age can cause the airbag to explode, sending shrapnel into the driver or passenger of the vehicle. This could lead to serious injuries and sometimes even death.
How Many People Have Died Due To Defective Takata Airbags?
So far, there have been around 26 deaths linked to defective Takata airbags in the United States and more than 400 injuries. If you or a loved one has been injured in similar circumstances in a vehicle equipped with this airbag, contact us today for a free case evaluation. You may be able to join many other plaintiffs in taking legal action against the manufacturer.
What Vehicles Contain Takata Airbags?
Takata airbag accidents are more prevalent in the following vehicles:
- Honda and Acura vehicles manufactured between 2001 to 2003
- Ford Rangers manufactured in 2006
- Mazda-B series pickup trucks
- Certain BMW models manufactured in 1999
Please note that this is not an exhaustive list of the vehicles believed to contain these defective airbags. If you suspect a defective airbag injured you or a loved one, contact us today to determine whether you have a valid case and if the vehicle fits the description.
How Serious Are Takata Airbag Injuries?
