Takata Bankruptcy: What it means for you

| Defective Products, Transportation

Airbag manufacturer Takata filed for bankruptcy in June 2017 after being the cause of the largest recall in American history. Beasley Allen lawyer Archie Grubb explains the intricacies of the company’s bankruptcy filing and its effects on consumers. Takata’s airbag inflators have been linked to more than 10 deaths after exploding due to the use of an unstable compound and spraying metal shrapnel on vehicle occupants. The airbags were used by most major car manufacturers to reduce costs, and a shortage of safe airbags continues to leave drivers at risk of being injured despite the ongoing recall.

Number one firm

I really appreciate the law firm, they look into every detail, they review everything with you not just once but several times to make sure everything is correct. They are a very good law firm and I would highly recommend them. They'll always call you back when you call with questions. They're number one in my book.
