Information about the class action lawsuit
Quinn Emanuel Urquhart and Sullivan, along with litigation funder Regency Funding Pty. Ltd., are opening a class action in Australia against car manufacturers, including BMW, Honda, Lexus, Mazda, Subaru and Toyota among others for their role in the defective Takata airbag scandal.
Australian consumers need to know that these airbags degrade over time, so the longer they remain unrepaired on the market, the more incidents will happen. And, as we recently saw in the expanding recall for U.S. consumers, some manufacturers are also replacing faulty airbags with equally faulty ones. If there are no safe replacements, the only way to remedy this for Australian consumers is to demand a buyback remedy.
Australian consumers who purchased a car fitted with a Takata airbag may be entitled to participate in the class action. Register now to take action.
Takata Airbag Recall Class Action Lawsuit FAQ
What is this class action about?
Takata airbags, found in automobiles manufactured by Toyota, Honda, Mazda and others, have been linked to several deaths around the world, including the July, 2017 death of a man in Sydney.
Who is the class action against?
We are filing a class action lawsuit against automobile manufacturers who sold cars containing defective airbags and failed to take the proper steps to ensure they were safe.
What’s the issue with Takata airbags?
These airbags may deploy in a dangerous fashion, rupturing the metal canister holding the air bag and sending metal fragments throughout the interior of an automobile and causing potentially fatal injuries.
How does the class action work?
A class action lawsuit is filed by a group of people who have similar claims against a defendant. They have typically either suffered a physical injury or have suffered financially due to the defendant’s alleged harmful actions.
How much will it cost me to file a Takata airbag lawsuit?
It will not cost anything to participate in the class action lawsuit. You will not have to pay anything unless you win the case. We assume all of the costs and the risks – you will pay nothing out-of-pocket. If the class action is a successful one, all participants will share in the proceeds from either a settlement or a court judgment.
What kinds of damages can I claim?
We are filing lawsuits based on an Australian law that allows consumers to seek a refund if they have an unsafe product that cannot be repaired within a reasonable time frame. Investigations have shown that some automobile manufacturers have chosen to replace defective airbags with equally dangerous ones. If no safe replacements are available, then the only remedy for consumers is to ensure they receive a full refund.

Unfortunately, it is often the case that filing a lawsuit is the only way a corporation will feel compelled to do what is right. However, our firm will take care of all of the work associated with your lawsuit, and will keep you thoroughly apprised regarding all developments of the case.
