Anapol Schwartz Personal injury lawyers filed a class action lawsuit in Pennsylvania against Takata Corporation, Honda Motor Co., and other auto makers impacted by the Takata airbag recall. Eleven car makers have issued airbag recalls during the past year due to defective Takata airbags that may explode, shoot shrapnel and cause serious injuries.
The Takata airbag lawsuit filed on November 18 alleges that Takata knew about the airbag defects as early as 2001 but failed to fully investigate the problem until recently.
The reaction of manufacturers to this recall has been as grossly mismanaged as was the response to the original problem.
The complaint alleges that the Takata airbag recall cheated class members because the vehicles they purchased were of lesser standard, grade and quality than was represented by automakers.
Vehicle owners affected by the Takata airbag recall may be entitled to compensation for economic loss caused by the diminished value of cars with these dangerous airbags. Contact an airbag defect lawyer to find out if you are eligible to join the Takata airbag class action lawsuit.
