TRW Automotive Holdings Corp. Air Bag Failure Lawsuits
A probe is currently under way into potentially defective airbags, which were installed in over 12 million vehicles. The TRW Automotive Holdings Corp., which is now owned by ZF Friedrichshafen, is responsible for the manufacture of the airbags under investigation.
The potential auto product defect, which results in the airbags failing to deploy as intended, could be linked to a number of crash-related fatalities. The current phase of the investigation involves engineering analysis, which is typically a precursor to a product recall if enough evidence of a defect is identified.
Vehicles that were fitted with the airbags from 2010-2019 are the focus of the safety probe. A preliminary investigation was launched in 2018 and looked at 400,000 vehicles fitted with TRW Automotive Holdings Corp. airbags. Both ZF Friedrichshafen and Toyota are confirmed as working with NHTSA investigators on aspects of the probe.

Airbag Failure Injury Lawyers
An airbag failure can result in multiple types of injuries in a motor vehicle crash. The recent probe by the NHTSA is seeking to establish if TRW Automotive Holdings Corp. airbags failing to deploy is linked to a number of reported injuries and at least one fatality.
The NHTSA said the faulty airbags were installed in some vehicles from the 2010-19 model years sold by:
- Fiat Chrysler Automobiles
- Honda Motor Co.
- Hyundai Motor Co.
- Kia Motors Corp.
- Mitsubishi Motors Corp.
- Toyota Motor Corp.
The failure of airbags to deploy may be linked to an electrical system failure that results from overstress. The signals that should instruct airbags to deploy after impact are disrupted, causing the failure of deployment and increased risk of injury. Although the risk of airbag failure is believed to be low at this stage of the probe, the issue may have factored in two recent frontal crashes.
