Following several problems with airbags deploying and sending shrapnel
into the faces and necks of drivers and passengers, Honda recalled affected
models for airbag replacement. Before the recall, however, Orlando woman
Hien Tran, age 51, died from shrapnel in one such faulty airbag.
When Tran was initially cared for, medical responders were confused by
what appeared to be stab wounds covering her neck. Because the recall
was not yet public, medical personnel had no idea that the airbag could
have caused such injuries.
Following the September 29 accident, Tran’s death, and the Honda/Takata
recall, surviving family members filed suit against the companies today
in Orange County court. If you have questions regarding the impact of
the faulty airbags in your Orlando car accident, contact attorney Carolyn
