Takata Airbag Injuries in Philadelphia

Takata Airbag Injuries in Philadelphia

Under normal circumstances, airbags should be the first line of defense in the internal structure of a vehicle in the even of a car accident. Unfortunately for some drivers and passengers, this crucial safety feature is the reason they've lost their loved ones, suffered serious injuries, or both. This comes after the stunning revelation that popular automobile part manufacturer Takata manufactured a series of defective airbags that caused serious injuries and deaths to vehicle owners all over the United States and the world. 

In the US alone, more than 26 people have died so far, and at least 400 others have sustained severe injuries due to the defective nature of these airbags. According to an investigation carried out by the NHTSA, this accident occurred due to the combination of environmental moisture, high temperatures, and age. When these factors blend with the airbag inflator made of metal, the inflator can ignite, sending shrapnel to the driver and passengers in the vehicle.

As you would expect, Takata airbag injuries in Philadelphia and throughout the country are serious and horrific, to say the least. A CNN report told the story of a woman who suffered serious head injuries in what appeared to be a minor accident. Investigators revealed that under normal circumstances, such an accident was too minor to cause such serious injuries. The horrific report added that the woman's injuries were so severe that first responders initially believed that she had been shot or stabbed in the head several times. Little did they know that these injuries occurred due to the impact of shrapnel bursting through the victim's face.

If that accident reminds you of something you or a loved one has experienced before, contact us today for a free case evaluation. You might be able to join many other plaintiffs who have suffered serious injuries as a result of Takata's defective airbags.
