Seventh Fatality Associated with Takata Airbag Confirmed
The seventh death associated with the airbag occurred in a manner similar to the preceding six fatalities. In each case, the airbag on the driver’s side deployed improperly and in a manner that resulted in the device exploding fatally wounding the driver.
Size of Recall
With the latest fatality, the number of automobiles recalled rose an additional 1.4 million. Ultimately, it is now estimated that nearly 40 million vehicles may end up subject to the recall due to the defective Takata airbag system.
Toyota has added the Corolla, Corolla Matric, Seuoia SUV and Lexus convertible to the list. It is the second time in nearly one month that Toyota has added to their list of recalls. Honda is recalling additional Accord and Civic models. The seventh victim of the defective Takata airbags was driving a Honda Civic at the time of the accident.
Timeliness of Recall Notices
The latest death has given rise to a question of whether or not automobile manufacturers that may utilize the Takata airbag system in question have provided or are providing recall notices in a timely manner. There is some issue as to whether the latest person killed received the recall notice at all, although the manufacturer contends it mailed it three days before the incident.

From providing Employee Appreciation Day to celebrating all major Holiday including great competitive contests; Phillips Law Group has the total participation of all employees to help contribute to the continued success of this firm. So in closing I would like to thank Senior Administration (Jeffery Phillips, Eva Chiaramonte, and Tim Tonkin) along with all of my colleagues and many friends for help making Phillips Law Group a unique and wonderful place to call my place of employment for 6+ years.
They knew exactly how to explain the case to me in a way that I would understand it. They gave me hope that my life wasn’t over.
I have been with Phillips Law Group for a little over a year and I have learned what teamwork and family in a workplace looks like. There is always someone around to lend a helping hand, which is something I appreciate and cherish. I feel a sense of joy coming to work every day because of my co-workers as well as being able to help people in what can be a scary and stressful situation. I currently work as a Litigation Legal Assistant with an amazing team. When I started here, I was not very knowledgeable in personal injury. I was lucky to have been placed with an amazing team who was willing to take time to teach and pass on some great skills that have been a huge aid in helping me be successful in my position. I would recommend working here at Phillips Law Group, because they care about their employees and there is so much room for growth.
