Have You Suffered Injuries or Loss Caused by Defective Automobile Airbags?

If so, you need a Houston defective product attorney with the experience and resources to investigate and pursue your auto airbag defect claim.

Our Texas product liability lawyers represent people who have sustained serious injuries and the families of those who died due to defective Takata Airbags installed in vehicles manufactured by ToyotaHondaMazda, and BMW.  Takata recently issued a recall of approximately 4.7 million vehicles.

Takata Corporation, a Japanese manufacturing company, has been selling potentially defective airbags since 2001.  A Defect Information Report filed with the National Highway Transportation and Safety Administration (NHTSA) states that Takata’s airbags can rupture or explode causing pieces of metal to strike and injure drivers and front-seat passengers.  The problem with Takata’s airbags appears to be particularly pronounced in areas with high humidity such as along the Gulf Coast of the United States, including Texas, Louisiana, Alabama and Florida.  At The Callahan Law Firm, our Houston product liability lawyers including Michael S.  Callahan (BSME, JD) and staff work together to force such companies like the Takata Corporation to fairly compensate those who have suffered because of defective products.

According to documents filed with National Highway Transportation and Safety Administration (NHTSA), potentially defective Takata airbags have been installed in the following vehicles.
