Many Car Makers Announce Airbag Recall for Faulty Airbags

Picture this: you are driving down the road and a deer runs out in front of your car. You swerve but bam!! Thank heaven for airbags, right? Generally speaking, yes. However, six drivers were injured by airbags that did more than cushion the blow of a crash. When their cars made impact in their accidents, metal and plastic shards spew throughout the car.

No major injuries were reported. However, 10 car manufacturers including Honda, BMW, Chrysler, Ford, Mazda, Nissan, Mitsubishi and Toyota issued a recall in 13 states and U.S. territories (Puerto Rico) where high humidity could exacerbate the air bag’s hazards. These companies are notifying car owners about the potential dangers of Takata-made airbags.

According to the National Highway Transportation and Safety Administration (NTSB), airbag maker Takata is cooperating with the U.S. Department of Transportation regarding the airbag concerns.

Honda has reported the biggest involvement in the recall. The company issued the recall on both driver side and passenger side airbags on some 2001-2006 model year vehicle. The recall extends to models including 2003 to 2005 Honda Accords, 2001 to 2005 Civics, 2002 to 2005 CR-Vs, 2003 to 2004 Elements, 2002 to 2004 Odysseys, 2003 to 2005 Pilots, 2006 Ridgelines, 2003 to 2005 Acura MDXs and the 2005 Acura RL.

Mr. Graziano had my best interests in mind when he represented me. He is clearly knowledgeable and handled my divorce quickly and efficiently. I'd hire him if I ever found myself needing a divorce lawyer again. Nadia
Attorney Graziano is one of the brightest and most compassionate professionals which anyone could work with! He is a great advocate and is extremely knowledgable of the judicial system.

Hiring the right attorney to represent your divorce case is one of the most important decisions you will ever make! I was fortunate enough to hire Ron to handle my case and had what I believe to be a favorable outcome. I based my opinion on achieving the goals we set in the beginning of the case and comparing my final outcomes to friends and colleagues that went through the process with other attorneys. Thank you Ron! Craig
It seemed like my case took forever but I trusted Ron Grazaino and listened to what he had to say. Mr Graziano said that the insurance company was not being fair and that we should go to trial. The trial was very nerve racking however he eased my mind and killed them with proof and knowledge. My outcome of my trial brought me to tears of joy. I could never imagine such a good outcome. Listen to him, have faith and you too will be impressed. Robin
