Takata airbag blamed in Florida driver’s injuries

A Honda vehicle owner who sustained injuries last month in a car accident claimed the injuries were caused by metal shards released from inflating Takata airbags, a Reuters article stated on April 10.

Medical documents from a hospital revealed that the owner of a 2003 Honda Civic vehicle sustained neck injuries last March due to foreign objects apparently released from the vehicle’s airbag. The pieces of small metal in the victim’s neck had to be extracted through surgery. An attorney representing the victim said that they are considering filing a lawsuit. Honda and Takata reportedly are working together to find out what caused the driver’s injury. Since 2008, there have been an estimated 25 million vehicles recalled worldwide due to the potentially dangerous Takata airbags. These airbags have been linked to at least six fatalities.

Innocent drivers are at risk of suffering serious or even fatal injuries when they unknowingly operate a defective vehicle.
