Do you own a vehicle equipped with a defective airbag?

The class action attorneys at Robins Kaplan can help.

Robins Kaplan attorneys are investigating claims that certain components of airbag safety systems used in many popular vehicles are allegedly defective – meaning the airbag and seat belt pretensioners may fail to deploy during a crash.

In April 2019, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) expanded an investigation into airbag manufacturer ZF-TRW to include several popular auto manufacturers, including Honda, Hyundai, Mitsubishi, Kia, and Toyota. This investigation indicates that “[c]ertain FCA, Honda, Hyundai, Kia, Mitsubishi, and Toyota vehicles are equipped with an air bag control unit produced by TRW (ZF), which could fail during a crash event resulting in non-deployment of air bags and seat belt pretensioners.”1
