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.

      • Shiva says:

        SRS (airbag) control units take into account a multitude of sensor data input to decide if airbags must be deployed. Some of these factors include angle of impact, location of impact, force of impact, wheel speed at time of impact, seatbelt usage(or lack thereof) at time of impact, weight of passenger seat occupant. It is usually safe to assume that if your airbag did not go off in a crash, you were wearing your seatbelt and you were not gravely injured from striking your head or chest on the steering wheel, dashboard or windshield that your airbag did not deploy because it was not needed or if deployed may have caused you to sustain additional injuries.

        ADMIN – Hi Shiva,

        Word!

  9. richard t picciano says:

  10. Henry A Hwe says:

    Was our claim received?

    ADMIN – Hi Henry,

    I am not the class action administrator but if you received a confirmation number most likely your claim was received.

  11. Annette White says:

    If the decision was finalized in court in October 2017, when should the checks be distributed to those who filed in the lawsuit? A copy of the reply sent to my email as well would be very helpful.

    ADMIN – Hi Anette,

    We don’t know. The class action administrator will be best qualified to answer your question.

  13. ELIZABETH A DOUGHERTY says:

  15. Robert T Williams says:

    Usually, the lawyers get all the money. You won’t see much out of this; just watch and see.

  16. Chrystyne L. Braaten says:

    I have own two Toyota RA4’s. When I first heard about the Takata Airbag failure & settlement both in the news and on line, it was very confusing to me, so I had the dealer where I bought my Toyota RAV4 at and have it serviced check for me & he said my Toyota was not part of it but I will check again with the vin # checker link above just to make sure.

  17. Richard says:

    I owned a 2007 Toyota FJ Cruiser. It rolled down a mountain in Arizona 197 yards, rolling over 10 times, bouncing off of boulders, trees etc. It came to a stop laying on the driver’s side where I laid for 3 days until some people looking for a place to picnic saw the roof of the car from above on the mountain. A rescue team of 15 people had to use the jaws of life and cut the roof off to get me out. I was helicoptered to a medical center where it was discovered that I broke my neck, was in shock and had PTSD, and had many bodily injuries.

    NOT ONE OF THE 8 AIRBAGS DEPLOYED AS A RESULT. How is that possible?

    Can I be a participant in any class action lawsuit against Toyota?

    ADMIN – Hi Richard,

    I would contact a class action attorney for a consultation here is a link to one

  20. Vincent Ricardo Samuels says:

    Has an effective date been established for TK Holdings, Inc. and when can claimants begin to receive settlement checks?

    I don’t think so.

  21. Samantha Shatilla says:
