Tampa Takata Airbag Injuries
Thousands of lawsuits have been filed against Takata, a Japanese multi-billion automotive parts manufacturer. The lawsuits allege that the company's negligence resulted in serious injuries and deaths of drivers and passengers using vehicles installed with Takata airbags. The main argument here is that these accidents could have been prevented had the victims been made aware of the airbag inflator problems. Since the company knew about this issue in the early 2000s but failed to disclose it until around 2015, it can be held liable for failing to notify vehicle owners, safety regulators, and the public about its airbags' defective and dangerous condition. And on top of that, they continued to manufacture and distribute airbag systems knowing they contained hazardous defects.

What Damages Can I Recover From a Takata Airbag Lawsuit?
You may be eligible to recover damages if you suffered serious injuries or lost a loved one due to these defective airbags. The damages may include compensation for past and future medical expenses, lost wages and future earning potential, special accommodations needed for your home to accommodate any disabilities resulting from the accident, pain and suffering, the loss of enjoyment of life, and more.
Who Will Compensate Me for My Takata Airbag Injuries?
In 2018, Takata reached an agreement with the US Department of Justice to plead guilty to failing to disclose critical information that could have saved lives and prevented serious injuries.
As a result, the company was ordered to pay a total of $1 billion in criminal penalties. This amount included $975 million for restitution and a $25 million fine. From the restitution funds, approximately $125 million would go into compensating individuals who have suffered physical injuries due to Takata's airbags and have not yet settled with the company.
So if you have a valid claim, this amount could cover part of the settlement. Your attorney may also be able to help you find other ways to seek compensation for your injuries and losses, depending on the circumstances of your case.
How Do I Know If I Have a Valid Case Against Takata?
Anyone who got injured due to a defective Takata airbag can file a claim for compensation. This also applies to individuals or families that lost their loved ones in car accidents in which Takata airbags deployed.
Injured By a Takata Airbag? Contact Morgan and Morgan
More than 24 people have died, and at least 400 were seriously injured due to defective Takata airbags. Tragedy hit closer home in Florida when a woman died after a faulty Takata airbag flung shrapnel into her head. A police report showed that the woman should have survived the crash had it not been for the defective airbags.
