Congressional hearing last month urged Takata executive to create a compensation fund for victims similar to one established by General Motors after its ignition switch recall. Kevin Kennedy, an executive vice president, from Takata said, “Takata believes that a national compensation fund is not currently required,”
Jared Levy, a spokesman for Takata, said on Thursday that the company was “committed to treating fairly anyone injured as a result of an inflater rupture.”
“For that reason,” he said, “Takata has settled a number of injury claims and will continue to do so based on the facts and circumstances of individual cases.”
Takata airbag defect is putting so many people’s lives at high risks. Takata’s airbag problem has been investigated for eight deaths and more than 100 injuries worldwide. A compensation fund could help uncover more victims.
