Ongoing Toyota Recall Holds Serious Liability Implications For Manufacturer, but Consumers Must Be Protected, Says Texas Attorney Brad T. Wyly
Date:2/17/2010

Wyly, a personal injury lawyer in Houston, says manufacturer’s liability over alleged sudden acceleration in some vehicles has not yet been fully tallied.

Houston, Texas (PRWEB) February 17, 2010 -- The unfolding story surrounding recalls related to faulty design in several Toyota vehicles is alarming in its implications for the automobile manufacturer, says Houston personal injury attorney Brad T. Wyly.

“Toyota has long been held up as one of the world’s premier automobile manufacturers, but over the last several weeks we’ve seen a new report just about every day about safety issues,” said Wyly, who represents individuals injured in motor vehicle accidents. “Certainly more investigation will be necessary, but the legal implications for the company, in terms of liability, have yet to be fully tallied.”

Toyota, the world's No. 1 carmaker in terms of sales, has recalled 8.5 million vehicles worldwide since October for problems linked to scores of deaths in the United States.

The Associated Press reported on Feb. 15 that the government has received new complaints that bring to 34 the number of deaths in Toyota vehicles since 2000 allegedly linked to a sudden acceleration in some models.

Several Toyota cars may have design flaws that cause accelerators to stick, according to various news reports. The company halted production at five plants in North America so its workers could repair the recalled vehicles.

President Akio Toyoda acknowledged in an opinion piece published in The Washington Post on Feb. 9 that the company had "failed to connect the dots" between sticky accelerators in Europe identified as early as December 2008 and those in the U.S. that culminated in the massive recalls.

“Clearly, Toyota should be held to answer if its actions or rather inactions, in correcting the acceleration problems are to blame for these fatalities and other injuries” said Wyly, whose firm handles claims for clients injured in automobile accidents and as a result of defective products. “Where there may have been negligence that led to injury and death, our firm sides with the individual consumer.”
