Important news for Honda and Acura owners: airbag recall

Last week, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) released a critical warning regarding the airbags in some Honda and Acura vehicles. NHTSA says owners of these vehicles should not drive them unless the airbag has been replaced.

The chance of these airbags rupturing is as high as 50 percent. NHTSA urges owners to seek immediate replacement, which is free. The models included in this report are 2001 to 2003 Civics, Accords, Acura TLs, CR-Vs, Odysseys, Pilots and Acura CLs.

The dangers of defective airbags

The Takata airbag recall involves defective airbag inflators. The defect causes some airbags to rupture and propel metal shrapnel into drivers and passengers. Older vehicles in areas where there is high humidity are at increased risk of the airbag rupturing.

Victims of defective airbag ruptures may suffer serious or fatal injuries. To date, 10 people have died and hundreds suffered injuries as a result of Takata airbag ruptures.

What you can do if you suffer airbag injuries

If a defective airbag injures you or a loved one, you can seek damages from the manufacturer. You will likely need a lawyer’s help to receive the compensation you need to cover all of your losses such as medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering.

Defective products lawsuits can be complex. Working with an attorney who has experience with these cases will help you understand your options.

"They...brought justice to my family through a multi-million dollar verdict ."
These lawyers took a complicated issue, revealed the truth in a way 12 jurors unfamiliar with the topic could understand, and brought justice to my family through a multi-million dollar verdict. They were able to relate my “invisible” medical condition to the jury better than I can to my own friends. And because of that, the jury hugged me and cried with me when it was all over. That meant more to me than any amount of money.
