Takata, a major automobile parts supplier, has recalled the airbags in about 7.8 million vehicles. See below for a list of the current makes and models which may contain these dangerous airbags. The reason for the Takata airbag recall is that the propellant used can deteriorate over time due to environmental factors (especially in high humid areas such as Florida). This can lead to an over-aggressive combustion upon the airbag deploying. When this occurs, metal shards of shrapnel can be sprayed throughout the passenger cabin. This can cause severe injuries, and possibly death, to the front seat occupants. There have already been at least 11 fatalities and more than one hundred injuries linked to these faulty Takata airbags.

Amy was both a great lawyer and a friend during a very difficult time for me and my family. She was with us every step of the way and made sure we always knew what was going on. Amy and her team, especially Patti, took very good care of us and treated us with empathy and respect. Highly recommend.

After being struck by a car, I was in dire need of a law firm that understood the complexities of my injuries as well as being able to help me navigate all the insurance bureaucracies I was forced to deal with. Their experience and understanding were paramount in helping me settle my claim so that I could move forward knowing I was in good hands. Don't be fooled by bravado and slick advertising that many attorneys use. Get The Ruth Law Team because they are truly knowledgeable, professional, and honest.
