Louisiana Takata Airbag Recall Lawsuits
Most automakers who sell cars in the United States rely on Takata Corporation, one of the world’s largest third-party car parts manufacturers, to supply airbags for their vehicles. This means that the ongoing recall of Takata airbags is one of the largest of its kind — involving 65-70 million airbags in tens of millions of cars. Not only are car companies struggling to notify owners of more than 37 million vehicles that they may be at risk, but some are also facing shortages of replacement parts designed to fix these critical safety issues.
Hundreds of injuries and at least 20 deaths have been linked to faulty Takata airbags, and more drivers on the road are at risk as the scope of the recall continues to expand.

Recalled Takata Airbag Inflators Put Drivers at Risk
When a collision happens, airbags must inflate within a fraction of a second to help protect drivers and passengers. Inflators within the airbag unit use a chemical propellant to create gases that quickly inflate airbags in vehicles driving up to 200 mph. What sets the recalled Takata airbags apart from other airbags on the market is the chemical propellant the company used — ammonium nitrate.
Moisture and changes in temperature can make ammonium nitrate unstable over time, and during accidents, the substance can explode with enough force to rupture the plastic and metal components around the airbag itself. When this happens, shrapnel and debris are hurled at vehicle occupants as the airbag inflates.
