More than 7 million vehicles are reportedly affected by a potential murderer in wait.

These vehicles possess Takata airbags, which are now known to be defective and likely to shoot shrapnel inflator parts when they deploy.
Separate recalls in April, June and now October have showed that Takata is having a difficult time pinpointing which cars used its defective airbags.
Here’s a full list of the affected vehicles.
Toyota, one of the affected makes, reported no related injuries or deaths with its vehicles, however the New York Times reported last month that there have been at least 139 reported injures across all automakers.
Honda, in particular, has reported at least two deaths and 30 injures in their vehicles in relation to these faulty Takata airbags.
If your car is among the recalled cars, I can’t stress enough how important it is for you to get the airbag replaced. Defective airbags, whether they fail to deploy or shoot shrapnel at your face when they do deploy, is so dangerous and, as shown above, can lead to serious injuries or even death.
If you’ve been injured in a car accident, or your loved one has, and a defective airbag is to blame – or you think it is – then you should speak to an experienced car accident attorney immediately as you may be entitled to substantial compensation.
An experienced car accident attorney will look at your case detail by detail, determine whether the faulty airbag is to blame, and then go through the necessary steps to prove the manufacturer’s liability. He or she will then be able to determine if compensation should be received and how much.
Compensation should include medical bills, pain, suffering, lost wages from time you’ve had to miss from work and more.
