Pritzker Levine LLP Files Class Action Lawsuit Against Parts Maker and Automobile Manufacturers for Alleged Airbag Control Unit Defect

May 16, 2019 – Pritzker Levine LLP filed a proposed class action lawsuit today on behalf of plaintiffs alleging that certain Honda and Toyota vehicles are installed with a defective Airbag Control Unit (“ACU”) designed by Defendant ZF Friedrichshafen AG. According to the lawsuit, this defective ACU causes a critical component that monitors signals from crash sensors throughout the vehicle to be unreasonably susceptible to damage from electrical overstress. This can result in malfunctioning airbags and seatbelts. Plaintiffs’ case was filed in the United States District Court for the Central District of California.
