Second Recall Involving Faulty Airbags Announced

A second recall involving faulty airbags was announced on Saturday, January 31, 2015. According to news reports, about half of the more than 2.12 million vehicles in this recall had previously been recalled for a separate defect and repaired with a partial replacement. The partial replacement did not correct the defect in many of the vehicles. The parts for a complete repair may not be available until the end of 2015.

In the announcement, Anthony Foxx, U. S. Transportation Secretary stated, ‘Keeping the traveling public safe is our number one priority, and we expect the manufacturers to get this remedy right to prevent injury to drivers and their families.’

This recent recall involves faulty airbags that can deploy for no reason, and this includes while driving down the highway. The first recall involved faulty airbags that could deploy even in a minor fender bender, and could also expel sharp metal shards into the passenger area of the vehicle. Manufacturers involved include Chrysler, Toyota, and Honda.

“We would like to express our gratitude to you (Hunt Willis) for accepting our case. First of all, when I called this law firm, a very sweet and kind lady answered the telephone and gave me assurance by asking and going over the accident with me, while my husband was in the hospital. I felt assured I was doing the right thing for us. She was so helpful in so many ways. What a professional lady. Secondly, we are much pleased that you have settled this case with the insurance company to receive the proper amount to assist us in so many ways. My husband and I are very happy with you and the firm in handling our case. You made us have confidence in your professional and integrity along with your assistant Ms. Routh, when you both came to see us in our home, in which we saw your compassion and thoughtfulness at that time. We will never forget what you have done for us, and we thank the lord for directing me to contact this firm. I’m glad I did.”
