The Takata Airbag Recall is the largest recall in history. It is estimated that the recall will impact 42 million vehicles. The reason this recall is so serious is because of the gruesome injuries and deaths that are caused by the defective airbags.
There is a metal canister that is connected to the airbag. This canister, which is called an inflator, contains a propellant. When a vehicle is in an auto accident, an algorithm is used to determine if the airbags should inflate or not. If it is determined that the airbags should “go off,” the inflator instantaneously inflates the airbags to protect the occupants in the vehicle.
In the defective Takata Airbags, the inflator ruptures as it inflates the airbag. Since the inflator is made of metal, as it explodes it sends metal shrapnel through the airbag and into the interior of the car. Oftentimes this results in the occupants of the vehicle sustaining serious injuries or even death.

Seat Belt and Seatback Failure
There are two major components in a vehicle that are designed to keep the occupants safe in their seats during an accident: the seat belt and the seatback. If one of these two components fails to perform as intended, then the occupant is far more likely to sustain a serious personal injury.
Seat belt failures can include:
- False Latching – This occurs when the seat belt looks and feels like it has been latched properly, but is not.
- Inertial Unlatching – This occurs when the force from an auto accident causes the seat belt latch plate to slip out of the buckle.
- Failure of the Seat Belt Retractor to Lock – This occurs when the seat belt doesn’t lock and the impact from an automobile accident causes the passenger to be thrown forward.
- Webbing Failure – This occurs when the seat belt webbing/material rips during a car accident.
Seatback failures typically occur in rear-end collisions. These types of auto accidents create a lot of force with the passenger’s body against the seatback. When a seat back isn’t designed strong enough, it collapses backward causing the passenger to be thrown rearward in the vehicle. This can lead to serious injuries for the passenger being thrown backward and for any occupants sitting in the backseat of the vehicle.
The consequences of a seat belt or seatback failure can be severe and can cause serious injuries or even death to the occupants of a vehicle. Our product liability lawyers have represented many who have been injured due to a defective product, and will continue to offer their experience and knowledge to make sure each client receives the compensatory damages they deserve.

The Bridgestone / Firestone Recall from the early 2000s helped raise public awareness regarding the possible defects and issues that can arise from a poorly designed and manufactured tire. During this recall, it was emphasized that tread separations generally occur later in the life of a tire, typically three years or more after the tire is installed on the vehicle. Tread separation is where the tread and outermost steel belt of the tire become detached from the rest of the tire. This often occurs while traveling at a high rate of speed and can lead to a serious auto accident.
Tread separation isn’t the only major tire failure that can occur while driving. A sidewall failure often can lead to a serious accident as well. Most people refer to a sidewall failure as a “blowout.” This is where a hole or tear ruptures the sidewall of the tire.
Other types of tire failures include:
- Tire De-Beading and Bead Failures
- Tire Shredding
- Failed Tire Adhesion
- Sidewall Zipper Failures
The consequences of these failures can be severe. A tire failure can cause the driver to lose control of the vehicle, which can lead to a serious collision or rollover.
