Honda and Takata’s defective airbag problems

Japanese automaker Honda Motor Co., Ltd., in an interview with Reuters, revealed that they were aware that at least four injuries and a fatality in August 2009 were a result of defective airbag inflators. However, they remained silent about the design changes they made to this auto part and did not inform United States regulators about the hazardous, defective product.

The previously undisclosed redesign could potentially subject Honda and Japanese automotive parts company Takata Corp., the manufacturer of the ruptured airbag inflators, to be even more vulnerable to legal action, with over 100 pending federal lawsuits and dozens more state suits, according to attorneys who are suing the companies.

The attorneys further added that the redesign request made it clear that Honda was aware of the safety risks that the defective airbag inflators posed, yet Honda only started expanding recalls by the millions in 2014.

Sheboygan rollover accident injures child

A rollover accident took place on County Road I, south of Camp Riverside Road near Hingham in the Town of Lima in Sheboygan County, Wisconsin on Monday, February 1 at around 1:15 p.m. Though only one vehicle was involved in the incident, the accident resulted in a child sustaining injuries.

According to the Sheboygan County Sheriff’s Department, the driver of the vehicle, identified as 57-year-old Random Lake resident Emily Kolcu, drove over a wet spot on the road that caused the car to veer off the roadway, eventually flipping over into the ditch.

The child was apparently improperly restrained in a child seat and fell out during the rollover. The child’s injuries were not severe, however the child was transported to a nearby hospital for treatment.

As many accident victims are aware, a number of factors can contribute to a car crash.
