Seventh Fatality Associated with Takata Airbag Confirmed
The seventh death associated with the airbag occurred in a manner similar to the preceding six fatalities. In each case, the airbag on the driver’s side deployed improperly and in a manner that resulted in the device exploding fatally wounding the driver.
Size of Recall
With the latest fatality, the number of automobiles recalled rose an additional 1.4 million. Ultimately, it is now estimated that nearly 40 million vehicles may end up subject to the recall due to the defective Takata airbag system.
Toyota has added the Corolla, Corolla Matric, Seuoia SUV and Lexus convertible to the list. It is the second time in nearly one month that Toyota has added to their list of recalls. Honda is recalling additional Accord and Civic models. The seventh victim of the defective Takata airbags was driving a Honda Civic at the time of the accident.
Timeliness of Recall Notices
The latest death has given rise to a question of whether or not automobile manufacturers that may utilize the Takata airbag system in question have provided or are providing recall notices in a timely manner. There is some issue as to whether the latest person killed received the recall notice at all, although the manufacturer contends it mailed it three days before the incident.

Two family members were in a bad wreck a couple of years ago, and as a result called Phillips Law to represent them. Montana Thompson was the attorney assigned to the case with the help of Nemo Farr as legal assistant. Mr. Thompson litigated a very generous settlement for both my stepdaughter and her son. Because my grandson is a minor, I decided to act as conservator for him to ensure the settlement was safe and secure. Montana helped with that process, but it was Nemo who went way above and beyond the call in finding a financial institution to use for the restricted account. There were some glitches in that process but Nemo helped navigate them with a calm expertise which belies his age. I would consider them both great representatives of the level of commitment to their clients and assets to their firm.
Sophia H is very helpful.
I was recently served court documents that I was being sued from an accident that happened years ago. For someone who has never been through something like this and not familiar with the court lingo or where to even begin, it was very frustrating and stressful. I reached out to a family member who knew Tracy Laskos and the great reputation of Phillips Law Group and within the hours of the initial call for help, I had a direct number to Lead Attorney Nassar. Nassar heard my case and almost instantly put me at ease by explaining the process and how easy it was to handle. Nassar spoke to me like he was a friend, not like I was a client. I am so grateful to Tracy, Nasar and of course my cousin Stephanie for helping out and giving me the direction that I needed to get through this situation. I plan on referring my friends, family and patients that are in need of a personal injury Attorney to Phillips Law Group. Thank you!!
