Safety Alert: Takata Airbag Recall Hits Florida Hard

Various news agencies are reporting on a new NHTSA report that came out recently that said three quarters of the defective air bags they've tested have come from Florida. In fact, up to 70 and 80 percent of ruptured airbags are coming from Florida. The head of the agency said Florida's heat and humidity may be the reason millions of recalled Takata air bags in the state are more dangerous. The Takata company has recalled almost 34 million airbag inflators in the U.S. At least eight people have been killed and another hundred injured when the bags deployed with too much force in a crash. The air bags can blow apart a metal canister and spew shrapnel into drivers and passengers. One death was in Orlando.


NTSA Administrator Mark Rosekind told the public that if you have any recall, get it fixed. If it talks about your airbag, call your dealer immediately to arrange for a free repair. Those calling about the recall may be added to a wait list, and in that case, Rosekind suggested asking the dealer for a loaner or a rental vehicle.

If you or a loved one have suffered an injury and have questions or concerns, contact the professionals at Brannon & Brannon for a free consultation.
