In the past year and half, Japanese auto parts manufacturer Takata Corporation has faced scrutiny for defective airbags that can rupture on deployment. During that time, Takata recalled millions of U.S. vehicles over concerns that the faulty airbags were associated with several deaths and numerous injuries worldwide - though the company never admitted that the airbags were inherently faulty.
That all changed on Tuesday May 19th, 2015 when Takata admitted its airbags were defective and agreed to expand its recall of U.S. vehicles to nearly 34 million. Here are a few details about the recall:
Takata’s recall is unprecedented, and it speaks volumes about the dangers of defective products. Under product liability laws, manufacturers are required to ensure their products are safe for public use. When a defective product causes harm, victims and families have the right to pursue compensation for their damages by filing lawsuits.
