This is the website of the Takata Airbag Tort Compensation Trust Fund. The Trust Fund is being established as part of Takata's bankruptcy plan to compensate individuals who have been personally injured by a malfunctioning Takata airbag. This Trust Fund is separate from the Individual Restitution Fund established by the Federal Court in Detroit as part of Takata's criminal plea, but the two funds will complement each other and work in tandem. The Trustee of the Trust Fund and the Special Master of the Individual Restitution Fund is Eric D. Green.
Once operational, claimants will be able to file a single claim form for both the Trust Fund and the Individual Restitution Fund. The Trust expects to be open to receive claims by May 2018. The Trustee is currently finalizing all claims materials. Please continue to monitor this site for further developments. In the meantime, claimants should not begin to send any claim materials.
The Trust will also compensate certain non-airbag-related personal injuries or wrongful deaths caused by Takata products. More information on these types of claims will be forthcoming.
This website will be updated periodically with more information.
