    Takata Airbag Lawsuit Overview

    Drivers and passengers rely on airbags in the event of an accident. However, consumers are now learning that certain types of airbags can be very dangerous. Especially alarming is that the airbag manufacturer Takata tried to hide these risks. Continue reading this article to learn more about Takata airbag settlements, how to go about filing a claim and lawsuit loans.

    The more valuable a case, the higher chance of a larger settlement for the plaintiff. In strong cases, the plaintiff has most likely endured significant injury and loss of quality of life, amounting to higher damages.

    Unfortunately, the plaintiff is often left with the financial burden until settlement arrives. To make matters worse, mass tort product liability like Takata can take time. Lawyers often spend years testing cases before settling some mass tort cases.

    In the meantime, Takata airbag lawsuit loans can help cover your expenses. If all of the following are true, you may qualify:

    • You or a loved one suffered damages as a result of faulty Takata airbags and be engaged in active litigation
    • An expert has determined that your Takata airbag was faulty, and did not perform as intended

    Takata Airbag Recall and Lawsuit

    Takata made headlines when their defective airbags resulted in 17 deaths and over 180 injuries. Faulty Takata airbags would sometimes explode, causing metal shrapnel to fly at drivers and their passengers. More disturbingly, Takata was aware of the risks associated with their airbags. Over a decade ago, they conducted secret tests and tried to hide the evidence.

    Their airbag recall is the largest in American automotive history with more the 60 million cars recalled. This number is only expected to grow to 90 or even 100 million. Many plaintiffs continue to file lawsuits against the manufacturer after these recalls. In 2015, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) charged Takata with a civil penalty of $200 million. In January 2017, Takata pled guilty to criminal misconduct, which led them to reach a $1 billion settlement with the U.S. Department of Justice.

    Many car brands (Toyota, BMW, Mazda, Subaru, and Nissan) agreed to pay a $553 settlement in order to resolve charges related to economic losses. However, this does not cover personal injury, wrongful death, or property damage lawsuits. Many plaintiffs still look to filing a lawsuit against Takana to recover damages for injury and wrongful death.

    Recently, Takata filed for bankruptcy and announced a recall of 2.7 million additional vehicles from Ford, Mazda, and Nissan with calcium sulfate inflators.
