Takata Airbag Injuries in Manhattan
Airbags are some of the most essential features of a vehicle. Drivers and passengers rely on this feature for their safety if anything goes wrong, such as being involved in a car crash.
On the other hand, automobile parts manufacturers have the legal responsibility of ensuring that these features function properly. This is because, while airbags can be life-saving in the event of an accident, they can also be dangerous.
That’s why popular automobile part manufacturer Takata is facing thousands of lawsuits from all over America, including right here in Manhattan. Reports have shown that the automobile parts manufacturer is responsible for manufacturing defective airbags that explode unprovoked, sending shrapnels and metal shards flying into drivers and passengers in the vehicle.
For context, in one well-documented case, authorities responding to the car crash believed that the victim had been shot or stabbed in the face. After further investigation, it was later discovered that those horrific injuries stemmed from the shrapnel projected by the defective airbag directly into the driver’s face.
That’s how serious these injuries are.
