Death May Result From Faulty Airbags
Earlier this month personal injury attorney, Chad Tuschman, released a VLOG (see below) discussing the latest auto recall for Takata manufacured airbags. The Japanese airbags can have serious and even deadly results. When the air bags are activated, they can spew metal debris in the direction of the passenger it is meant to protect. It was also noted the test results were so severe that engineers began to prepare for a recall by designing possible fixes.
Since the release of that VLOG, it has been reported that Takata executives have known about the faulty airbags since 2004 yet failed to warn federal safety regulators. In fact, Takata executives ordered lab techs to erase testing results and dispose of the airbag inflaters in the trash.
Today, more than 14 million vehicles on a global scale have been recalled from 11 automakers because of the potential airbag dangers. The vehicle you are driving could be putting you at risk.
