Fort Lauderdale, FL (PRWEB) October 24, 2014
The Law Offices of Jason Turchin announced that a lawsuit has been filed in the United States District Court for the Southern District of Florida, under Case Number 1:14-cv-23944 on behalf of an accident victim allegedly injured by an exploding airbag. The case was filed under NUNEZ v. TK HOLDINGS, INC., TAKATA CORP., and AMERICAN HONDA MOTOR CO. INC. and has been assigned to Senior Judge James Lawrence King.
According to the lawsuit, Nunez, a Miami Gardens, Florida resident, was driving her car when she was involved in an accident. As a result of the impact, her airbag deployed. When the airbag deployed, a piece of metal allegedly shot through her airbag and struck her in her forehead, narrowly missing her eyes.
The airbag that failed was allegedly designed and manufactured by Takata for use by Honda. In the lawsuit, Nunez claims the airbag was defectively designed and manufactured by Takata. The allegations against the airbag manufacturer include that Takata failed to properly design, test, and manufacturer its airbag unit. It is also claimed that Honda breached several duties it owed to Nunez and the public in general.
“The biggest concern we have is that a driver doesn’t know if his or her airbag is faulty until the moment of impact, and by then it is too late,” says Jason Turchin, lead attorney in the case.
Turchin and his law firm are currently representing several other victims allegedly injured by defective airbags.
