Vehicles made by 19 different automakers have been recalled to replace frontal airbags on the driver’s side or passenger’s side, or both in what NHTSA has called “the largest and most complex safety recall in U.S. history.” The airbags, made by major parts supplier Takata, were mostly installed in cars from model year 2002 through 2015. Some of those airbags could deploy explosively, injuring or even killing car occupants.
To date, there have been 15 deaths due to this problem in the U.S. Worldwide, NHTSA reports there have been at least 23 deaths and 300 injuries.
Today we know that company executives were aware of the Takata airbag explosion risk by at least 2000. Quietly monitoring the problem, conducting safety tests and then destroying damaging data, Takata airbag executives prioritized company profits over consumer safety for 15 years. An estimated 42 million American vehicles have been or will be part of the Takata airbag recall. The Takata airbag cover-up is the subject of a Department of Justice (DOJ) investigation, regulatory action from NHTSA, and well over $1 billion in fines and penalties. Three executives involved in the Takata airbag scandal have been charged by U.S. prosecutors.
Recalled Takata airbags can be found in approximately 42 million vehicles from 19 different automakers. San Diego Takata lawsuits aim to hold the company accountable for harboring and concealing Takata airbag risk information for up to fifteen years. In fact, questions were raised about the safety of Takata airbags when the product was initially developed. The first Takata airbag death report reached the company in 2004, at which time Takata executives were already concealing and falsifying test data
