Car Manufacturers Recall Millions Of Defective Airbags

Honda and other auto manufacturers have just issued a recall on nearly 3 million vehicles over a flaw in airbags. A defect in the airbags may cause them to accidentally explode. Over the last five years, nearly 10.5 million cars have been recalled as the result of problems with both passenger side and drive side airbags, making this one of the top five automotive defect recalls history.

According to reposts, Honda is expanding the scope of its recall due to the fact that vehicles in high humidity regions such as Hawaii may be more likely to explode, shooting out shrapnel at drivers and passengers.

It is unknown how many individuals have been harmed by this manufacturing defect. Manufacturing defects – such as an faulty automobile or machinery part, or any type of defective consumer product, injure thousands of individuals each year. Where the company was negligent in designing, constructing, or marketing a product, they may be found guilty in a product liability lawsuit and required to pay damages.

Common examples of defective products include airbags – whether they fail to explode or improperly explode, children's toys with broken parts, and prescription drugs that have dangerous and harmful side effects.

If you believe that you may have suffered an injury as the result of a dangerous or defective product, it is critical that you contact a skilled Hawaii defective product lawyer in order to begin an investigation into all of the causes and circumstances surrounded the accident and help you determine your next steps.
