Beasley Allen lawyer Chris Glover joins his fellow law partner and host of the Beasley Allen Report Gibson Vance to discuss problems with the Takata airbag. Automobile recalls have become the norm in recent years due to malfunctioning parts. Following its investigation of Takata and its exploding airbag, the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration (NHTSA) issued the largest recall in automobile history and fined Takata $70 million – the largest fine the agency has ever imposed on an automaker or auto parts supplier. Chris says the problems demonstrate the greediness and reckless disregard some automakers and parts suppliers have for human life. Unfortunately, the problem is so big there are not enough good airbags to replace those that are prone to explode. Find out if you have a Takata airbag and what this means for your safety and the safety of your passengers.
