Corey Burdick’s life was forever changed on May 29, 2014 when he was involved a minor traffic incident while driving to work in Lake County, Florida. During the minor incident, the Takata airbag in his 2001 Honda Civic and ejected sharp metal shrapnel into the right eye, leaving him disfigured and permanently blind in that eye.
Corey later found out that his Civic had been previously recalled multiple times for the dangerous airbag defect. Unfortunately, Corey never received notice of the recall. As a result, both Corey, his wife, and their two young children are now forced to live with permanent and needless injuries Corey suffered as a result of the shrapnel defect.
