Most people hope that the products they use will not pose them any kind of unnecessary threat. Unfortunately, some products can put users at considerable risk of injury or even death. Though recalls may be put in place once these risks are identified, those notices may come too late. As a result, individuals or families may have reason to take legal action in the form of a product liability claim.
Recent recalls regarding Takata airbags have been circulating, but unfortunately, these airbags have caused a number of deaths over the years, including in West Virginia. In fact, 19 car and truck manufacturers have participated in recalls due to the airbags. Apparently, if the airbag deploys, it can do so with excessive force and cause shrapnel to fly through the air. As a result, drivers and passengers could suffer serious injuries.
