Case Name

In Re: Takata Airbag Products Liability Litigation Nissan Settlement
No. 15-MD-2599-FAM
United States District Court for the Southern District of Florida

Case Summary

The lawsuit alleges that certain car companies, including Toyota, manufactured, distributed, or sold vehicles with defective Takata airbag inflators. The inflators can, upon deployment, rupture and expel debris or shrapnel at the driver or passenger and/or otherwise affect the airbag’s deployment, and that the Plaintiffs sustained economic losses as a result.

The lawsuit claims for violations of various state consumer protection laws, among other claims. Toyota denies that it has violated any law, denies liability, and denies that it engaged in any wrongdoing with respect to the manufacture, distribution, or sale of the Subject Vehicles.

  8. Michael L Frazier says:

    I had a car and Toyota and I was in a car accident and the air bag didn’t go off.

    ADMIN – Hi Michael,

    If you believe this was due to a defect consider hiring lawyer. In this case the settlement relates to bags going off with such force that they can kill or injure you.

    • The Rex Ten says:

      The same thing happened to me. I was in an accident (Toyota Prius) and the air bags didn’t go off. Toyota stated you ‘have’ to get hit in a certain area for them to go off which apparently I wasn’t. I have yet to find a lawyer to go after Toyota. Has anyone else seen this problem with Toyota’s?

      ADMIN – Hi Rex,

      Not me personally but perhaps someone visiting this page.

  9. richard t picciano says:
