Honda Airbag Recall Attorney & Lawsuits

Auto recall lawyer and Honda airbag recall attorney investigating cases of defective Takata airbags failings to deploy or delaying deployment following an auto collision

Honda Motor recalled over 1 million Acura and Honda vehicles in the U.S. with defective air bag inflators that potentially could explode and send sharp metal into the vehicle, endangering drivers and passengers. Honda announced the recall of Takata airbags, which is a part of the largest auto recall in U.S. history, involving 50 million defective air bags, according to the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).

The NHTSA has said that 15 people in the United States have been killed by faulty Takata air bag inflators, and possible hundreds have allegedly been injured following car collisions when airbags fail to deploy or explode and injure passengers.

Joe Lyon is a highly-rated Auto defect lawyer and Honda airbag recall attorney who has successfully represented plaintiffs throughout the country in complex product liability cases.

The NHTSA has followed Takata’s air bag recalls and investigated the company’s negligence for several years. In one case, Honda found defective air bag inflators made at a Takata facility in Mexico in which the company “manufacturing process errors” resulted in excessive moisture into the inflator. According to Honda, the moisture produced a high amount of pressure, causing it to rupture. The potential airbag explosions sent pieces of metal into the vehicle and injuring passengers.
