Legal-Bay, The Pre Settlement Funding Company, reports today that the ongoing legal saga concerning Takata airbags isn’t over yet. Plaintiffs are still filing suit against major car manufacturers including Ford, Mazda, and Toyota, citing injuries that have resulted from faulty airbags in their vehicles.
The automotive giants have come under fire in recent years for manufacturing, distributing, and/or selling certain vehicles which contained allegedly defective air bags manufactured by the Takata Corporation. The faulty devices have ruptured upon inflation, causing damage to the vehicle and/or not deployed at all, causing injury—and in some cases death—to car occupants. Four major car manufacturers concluded a class action lawsuit against Takata with over $550 million in payouts in 2017, but additional lawsuits are currently being filed.
If you are a prospective plaintiff for that has sustained injuries due to faulty airbags or other car or truck accidents, Legal-Bay can help you.
Chris Janish, CEO of Legal-Bay, says, “The Takata Airbag cases have been lingering for some time. It is tragic that some of the car and truck accidents resulted in wrongful death cases, and it seems Takata is starting to take some responsibility. However, many personal injury cases requiring surgery are still moving through the court system throughout the country.”
Legal-Bay, one of the leading lawsuit funding companies, along with their funding partners, remains consistent in their dedication to helping clients receive cash funding for their legal needs. Their ample, knowledgeable staff is available to quickly evaluate cases for the fastest pre-settlement funding in the industry.

AI-led start-up UVeye raises $31 million led by Toyota Tsusho, Volvo Cars and W. R. Berkley Corporation
Israeli company UVeye, which provides sophisticated solutions for automatic external inspection of vehicles, has raised an additional $31 million in funding, led by Toyota Tsusho, Volvo Cars and W. R. Berkley Corporation, bringing total funds raised since 2017 to $35 million.
“This latest investment including leading automotive strategic partners is an important signal that we believe paves the way for UVeye to become the standard of automotive inspection and safety,” said Amir Hever, CEO of UVeye. “We are delighted to have world-class companies in their respective sectors endorse our game-changing auto-scanning solution.”
UVeye’s technology enables vehicle manufacturers, logistic operators, retailers and rental-car companies to carry out automatic vehicle inspection leveraging first-of-its-kind artificial intelligence, purpose-built for vehicles. Importantly, UVeye’s system has proven it can drive higher accuracy and improve efficiency, all with minimal human intervention.
UVeye’s drive-through systems can detect external and mechanical flaws and identify anomalies, modifications or foreign objects – both along the undercarriage and around the exterior of the vehicle. The scanning process completes within a matter of seconds and can be used throughout the entire lifecycle of the vehicle. The technology is being actively deployed today across many use cases, from the vehicle manufacturing line – the moment components are placed on the conveyor belt through end-of-line inspection – to logistics, maintenance and beyond.
Since inception, UVeye has generated millions of vehicle scans across dozens of countries. UVeye’s anomaly detection accuracy rate has exceeded client thresholds in all case studies to date.
In conjunction with today’s announcement, Volvo Cars and Toyota Tsusho intend to use UVeye’s inspection systems at various sites internationally, including Volvo Cars factories, dealerships and in the aftermarket. For Toyota Tusho, UVeye also will support distribution to used-car centers and throughout the company’s footprint within the Japanese auto market. UVeye welcomes these new relationships, adding to existing partnerships with Skoda and Daimler, according to Hever.
“Premium quality standards are at the core of the Volvo brand, and we are intrigued by the possibilities that UVeye’s technology offers,” said Zaki Fasihuddin, CEO of the Volvo Cars Tech Fund. “This type of advanced scanning technology could allow us to take the next step in quality.”
According to Mike Nannizzi, director of Fintech investments from W. R. Berkley Corporation: “When we made our initial investment in UVeye two years ago, we believed its system could have game-changing impact within security and inspection applications globally, and today’s announcement validates that early hypothesis. We congratulate UVeye, Toyota Tsusho and Volvo Cars for building a cohesive partnership with enormous potential.”
