CALGARY, Dec. 4, 2014 /CNW/ - Class action litigation has been launched today with the Courts against the Takata Corporation and its subsidiaries seeking financial compensation for all Canadians whose vehicles may contain defective airbags.
On December 3, 2014, U.S. lawmakers openly chastised the Takata Corporation for resisting a call by regulators to expand a nationwide recall of vehicles containing the defective airbags. Over 8 million vehicles have been recalled in the U.S. and an estimated 400,000 have been recalled in Canada.
"This class action seeks Canada-wide compensation for vehicle owners against Takata in relation to its defective and dangerous airbags." said Tony Merchant, Q.C. "Hiding safety information as alleged in this litigation has no part of responsible corporate behavior."
