Frustrations & Confusion Over Airbag Recall
Posted on behalf of Edwards Law Firm on May 21, 2015 in Consumer Alerts
Two things are reigning supreme in the midst of the largest consumer recall in U.S. history: confusion and frustration. This follows news that it could take weeks to find out if your car is on the dreaded recall list.
Experienced Takata injury lawyers from our firm can help you fight for justice. Best of all, our legal team understands why people are injured by dangerous devices.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration says of the nearly 34 million recalled automobiles, people in states with high humidity will have their vehicles repaired first. However, car manufacturers still need to provide data, so people could be driving with potentially deadly airbags for a while.
Regulators have linked the life-saving devices to six deaths worldwide, including five in the U.S. and hundreds of injuries. The defective airbags can explode violently when they deploy and rupture, sending shrapnel flying.
Panic was at a fever-pitch after the official recall announcement was made Tuesday. So many car owners flooded a government website to see if their vehicles were on the recalled list the site was temporarily knocked offline.
If you or your loved one was injured by a defective airbag, you may be able to file a claim for compensation against the company responsible. The defective product lawyers at The Edwards Law Firm are reviewing airbag claims against Takata Corp. and other manufacturers, and will be able to advise you of your rights after an injury.
