Personal injury attorneys, Williams DeClark Tuschman, have been following
the massive GM recall very closely. The Toledo based lawfirm is offering
FREE consultation to those who have been affected by the recall. But a
new danger involving exlpoding airbags could be on the horizon for vehicles.
There has recently been a case where a womans car was bumped from behind
by another vehicle that caused her car to slightly bump into the car ahead
of her. While there was not even a scratch on the womans vehicle the car’s
air bags exploded as a result of the minor fender bender. The air bag
exploded at such a high speed that it propelled hundreds of metal shards
into the womans face and other parts of her body causing serious physical
and permanent injuries.
The initial thought process was this was an isolated incident but millions
of vehicles are on the road today with defective airbags that could result
in serious injuries or even death.
We have learned that NHTSA has opened an investigation on vehicles that
are equipped with air bags manufactured by Takata Corp. (the worlds second-largest
maker of auto safety parts). Because of the investigation a list compiled
of the following car manufacturs Honda, Nissan, Mazda, Chrysler Group,
BMW, Toyota and most recentley GM are believed to have defective air bags.
The defective air bags have resulted in a recall beginning in 2008 to the present.

air bags, the personal injury attorneys of Williams DeClark Tuschman would
