It goes without saying that airbags are intended to save lives. By ensuring drivers and their passengers don't slam into the wheel, dashboard, or side windows during an accident, airbags help prevent catastrophic injuries to the head, face and neck. Unfortunately, that is not always the case – at least when it comes to Takata airbags.
In the past few years, litigation over Takata airbags has garnered nationwide attention. Since 2008, millions of automobiles manufactured by a number of well-known car dealers have been recalled because they were made using Takata airbags. Takata Corp., which is one of the greatest producers of car safety features in the world, has been producing airbags which were not sealed appropriately. Due to the airbag's faulty seal, moisture enters into the propellant system of the airbag causing the bags to explode with excessive force during an accident. As a result, metal shrapnel has been known to fly into the car when the airbag detonates. Unfortunately, use of these defective airbags has brought injury and even death to thousands of unsuspecting motorists nationwide, and hundreds of Takata airbag lawsuits have been filed in Colorado, alone.
