A Takata airbag is being blamed for the neck injuries sustained by a Florida driver last March, Reuters reported on April 10.
According to reports, an owner of a later model of a Honda Civic vehicle underwent a neck operation to extract metal bits that emitted from the exploding airbag. Reports also indicate that the victim plans to file a lawsuit. Though the federal auto safety stated that they have not confirmed if the driver’s injuries were caused by a Takata airbag, Honda began investigating the incident a few days ago. Takata stated that they are assisting Honda in determining the cause of the claim. Several deaths have already been linked to the faulty Takata airbags installed in Honda vehicles.
