More Auto Recalls, More Safety Concerns

Jun 22, 2015

The massive Takata Corp airbag recall has occupied headlines over the last couple of months as the crisis ballooned to become the largest and most complex auto recall in U.S. history.

Unfortunately, the drama continued last week as all 33 million vehicles were finally submitted to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and an eighth death was confirmed in connection to the violently exploding airbags.

If you or someone you love is injured as a result of a defective airbag, contact our Takata airbag recall lawyers to discuss your legal options.

Recall Safety

According to the New York Times, there was a record-breaking 64 million vehicles recalled in 2014. That number can be expected to be surpassed in 2015 with the almost 34 million vehicles that were recalled by Takata and several other auto recalls that have already been issued this year.

The Takata recall has been an especially confusing and complicated process that has left many motorists in the dark about which vehicles are at-risk.

With all Takata affected vehicles now uploaded onto a searchable database, consumers are encouraged to search for their vehicle identification number to see if their vehicle is included.

It has also shown a light on the importance of checking for recalls on your vehicle, promptly getting them fixed and practicing safe purchasing habits when buying used vehicles.

It has even prompted the NHTSA to raise awareness about auto recalls and how they work through a new video and an app that helps explain the recall process and make updates easily accessible.
