Auto Safety Expert and Personal Injury Lawyer Todd Tracy says Takata airbags are causing hundreds of injuries including facial scars and air bag eye injuries.
Takata’s saying that the cost to them and the industry could be up to 3.5 billion dollars. A recent study has suggested that that could be as high as 27 billion dollars. Now this just isn’t a Takata problem.
If Takata fails, it will literally bring the entire vehicle industry to a halt, because there are not that many airbag inflator companies that are out there. And if you have a certain company that fails that’s making a million or two million or three million of these a year, and they fail, there has to be another company that takes it’s place.
More importantly than that, you still have to have a company that can keep up with the supply and demand for our new vehicle market; but can also take the vehicles that are subject to the recall; that are subject to the concern of having the improvised explosive device going off. And there’s a hundred million more of those vehicles out there. This could be a problem that lasts decades. So when you hear numbers like; there’s only been ten death cases; that’s not the number you look at. The number you look at are the thousands of people who have been disfigured because of shrapnel blown into their face; shrapnel blown into their eyes; shrapnel blown into their foreheads, and their hands and their arms and their chest. Those are the numbers that we need to be focusing on.
If you, a family member, or friend have suffered a traumatic car accident injury or they were killed in an auto accident, there may be grounds for a product liability lawsuit against the car maker. The victim’s or family members of the deceased person may be entitled to significantly more money in damages than just a negligence case about the cause of the accident.
The Tracy Law Firm focuses on “Who Caused The Traumatic Car Accident Injuries or Death” — not who caused the accident.
Whether you were at fault or not in the cause of the accident, car companies are required by federal motor vehicle safety standards to make vehicles that will protect the driver and passengers from catastrophic injuries or death.
