Takata Recall has been the talk of the town for more than a decade and recently it has expanded a vast recall of about 2.7 million more vehicles mostly from Ford (F), Mazda and Nissan (NSANY).Their latest airbag inflators that were consumed to be safe have been witnessed to defect as well. These airbag inflators can cause serious damage to passengers and the drivers by being exploded.

Takata Airbags Deadly Incidents and Damages:

Takata Airbag Inflators have created some serious injuries and damages since the last decade. This manufacturer company from Japan covers a dominating part of the world’s market. Thus, the damages are proportional to its users. About 17 people died over the world and 180 people were injured due to the airbag explosion.

Incident 1:

A teenager (17) died on the Texas road last month due to a tragic accident but according to the local police, the teenager could have walked away but due to the defective airbags, she could not. This incident took place after a recall of 4000 vehicles by Honda.

Incident 2:

This incident is about the 11th death due to the defective Takata airbags of Honda Civic. Despite a slow collision, the car exploded as the inflator launched shrapnel at her and left her bleeding until death. That shrapnel cut her neck. This tragic incident took place in 2002.

Takata Airbags Penalty:

After the latest death of Eric Green, finally, Takata Airbags were found officially guilty by the court in the early Jan of this year. Due to the court and NHTSA investigation, some harsh inside truth got unveiled. Moreover, a terrifying one is that some engineers of Takata came to know about their defects a long ago. They also have filed this problem and started to work on it. However, later the higher authorities ordered them to stop working and leaking the news. They went with the defective parts and as a result, a massive damage occurred. Thus on 1 January when Takata was found guilty it was issued $1 billion compensation. In addition, the compensation includes $850 million for automobile companies who used Takata gadgets, $25 million as a criminal fine and $125 million for the affected people.
