When we get into a car, we expect that the vehicle has been built to standards that provide our utmost safety when accidents occur. We assume that everything has been made and installed to meet every safety standard to ensure the safety and well being of the driver. At Solomon, Sherman & Gabay, our Philadelphia injury lawyers want to discuss a personal injury settlement story that resulted in 14 deaths and more than 200 injuries in the US.
American Honda Motor Company and Honda of America Manufacturing Inc. recently issued an $85 million multistate settlement, and Pennsylvania will receive more than $2.5 million of that settlement.
Honda had a significant flaw in its airbags, resulting in metal fragments flying into many Honda and Acura vehicles’ passenger compartments when the bags were deployed. This resulted in 14 deaths and more than 200 injuries.
The Attorney General Josh Shaprio said, “Honda repeatedly and knowingly put Pennsylvanians in danger and failed to take the steps necessary to prevent the injuries their airbags caused despite multiple indications to Honda that the airbags were a safety risk, we contend that the company failed to warn consumers of the dangers of these airbags.”
So many people counted on the safety and protection of those airbags only to receive more hospital bills and, in the worst case, were killed by the equipment designed to save their life.
No one expects a simple car ride to be the prelude to hospital visits, medical bills, and the tearing apart of a family. Those victims would probably be paying exorbitant hospital bills and missing many days at work.
