NHTSA to Investigate Automakers For Problems With Takata Airbags

On Behalf of | Jun 13, 2014 | Defective Products

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has announced that they are investigating five major automakers for problems with airbags. The investigation was prompted by six incidents involving vehicles with airbags built by airbag manufacturer Takata.

According to reports, the airbag modules in these vehicles ruptured during employment. Exploding airbags can cause burns and other serious injuries. Approximately 1.1 million vehicles with Takata airbags are being investigated.

Toyota recently announced that they are recalling 650,000 vehicles due to airbag problems with parts produced by Takata. Additionally, the auto manufacturer plans to re-notify 2.3 million owners of vehicles involved in an April 2013 recall.

Toyota, Honda, Chrysler, Nissan and Mazda are all cooperating with the investigation. The auto manufacturers recalled 3.7 million vehicles worldwide for airbags built by Takata last year after it was found that they could catch fire or send metal fragments flying.

NHTSA says that it has been notified of six incidents since August including three reports of minor injuries. NHTSA noted that the incidents commonly occurred in areas with high-humidity such as Florida and Puerto Rico.

If you or a loved one has been involved in an accident and were injured by a defective airbag, you may be entitled to file a product liability claim.
