Honda has expanded an ongoing airbag recall to include additional Honda and Acura models. If you own a vehicle of either make, you should check out the latest statement on the company’s recall site. The problem may cause airbags to fail to inflate in the event of a crash, so it’s important that you respond to the recall notice as fast as possible if your car is affected.
Unfortunately, many drivers do not have the luxury of turning their defective vehicle in after they’ve received a warning from the company. They don’t realize the vehicle they trust to carry them is defective until it’s already been involved in a car or motorcycle accident. These recall efforts often owe a lot to injured consumers who chose to work with personal injury lawyers to bring these defects into the light.

A Bad Year for Car Manufacturers
Don’t feel bad if you might have confused this recall for another one at first. Honda may be dealing with airbags that don’t inflate properly in all situations, but most of the other big names in car manufacturing are managing massive recalls of their own.
Nissan announced only last week that they were recalling over 130,000 vehicles with brake fluid leaks that posed a fire risk. That same week, Ford recalled more than a million cars because a defect in the doors could cause them to simply fly open while the vehicle was being driven. They were joined by announcements of active recalls by Mazda, GM and Toyota, and all of those have also launched within the last month.
It’s a good thing that these manufacturers are choosing to recall their products before some customers can be endangered, but that isn’t much comfort to those who are already living with pain, injuries or lost property as a result of vehicles that were released with defects. When these injuries happen, you need to know how to get help.
Getting Help—Automotive Cases & Class Actions
A personal injury lawyer can help you if you’ve been injured by one of the defective Honda airbags. In fact, we can help you with most injuries that result from any kind of defective product, vehicle or not. It is best to speak to a lawyer before you’ve signed any documents given to you by the manufacturer. Your lawyer will want to be able to pursue your defense in the best way, and that could mean representing you personally or engaging in a class-action lawsuit.
