Copley et al v. ZF TRW Automotive Holding Corp., Hyundai Motor America, Inc., and Kia Motor America
United States District Court for the Western District of Washington
Case No. 19-cv-00707

Case Status

Keller Rohrback filed suit on May 10, 2019 in the Western District of Washington and on May 17, 2019 in the Eastern District of Michigan.

Case Overview

Keller Rohrback has filed suit against ZF-TRW, FCA US, Kia, and Hyundai relating to defective airbag sensors in 12.3 million vehicles that may cause airbags to fail to inflate, risking lives and causing injuries in the event of a crash. The malfunctioning airbags contain components supplied by auto parts maker ZF-TRW and used in model years 2010 to 2019. NHTSA documents state that the airbag control units can fail in a crash, possibly because of electrical overstress produced by the crash itself that can disable an air bag control circuit housed in the passenger compartment, according to the Associated Press.

Keller Rohrback has a track record of success in holding car manufacturers responsible for selling vehicles that don’t live up to the promises made at the time of sale. If you or someone you know owns or leases any of the affected vehicles described above, please contact attorneys Gretchen Freeman Cappio or Ryan McDevitt by phone at 866.560.4043 or via email at Cars@kellerrohrback.com to discuss our investigation and your potential claims against ZF-TRW, FCA, Hyundai, or Kia.
