Takata Executive Grilled in Senate Hearing over Airbag Issues

A senior executive with airbag manufacturer Takata was grilled at a Senate hearing this week. Senators received non-committal answers in response to questions of the executive regarding whether Takata accepted responsibility for injuries and deaths caused by defective airbags.

So far, more than 14 million vehicles from 11 automakers have been recalled due to faulty airbags. A defect with the airbag causes the inflator to break apart, spraying passengers with metal shards. Questions have been raised about the recall since it is based on geographic areas with automakers and Takata suggesting that the problem is most severe in warmer, more humid climates. On November 18, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration called on automakers to expand the recall of airbags nationwide. An account of the Senate hearing appeared in Thursday’s New York Times.

“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.
