Toyota Recalls Millions of Defective Vehicles

New York personal injury lawyers scrutinize the defect which causes Toyota made cars and trucks to accelerate when the driver is trying to slow down.

New York, NY (PRWEB) February 15, 2010 -- Toyota Motors announced a recall of almost 2.3 million vehicles on January 21, because the company learned that accelerator pads may stick, causing the vehicle to speed up unintentionally. As New York personal injury lawyers are aware, these unintended sudden acceleration incidents resulted in numerous accidents, many of which resulted in fatalities. The recall covers car and truck models from 2005 to 2010. Toyota models which are part of the recall are: 2005-10 Avalon; 2007-10 Camry and Tundra; 2009-10 RAV4, Corolla and Matrix; 2008-10 Sequoia; and 2010 Highlander.

"After approximately 2,262 - and counting - sudden acceleration incidents, we are pleased that Toyota has finally recalled its defective vehicles," said New York personal injury lawyer David Perecman quoting an analysis by Safety Research & Strategies, a vehicle safety research firm based in Massachusetts.

Last fall, Toyota recalled 3.8 million vehicles due to a design defect that caused the accelerator pedal to catch on the floor mat. Currently, approximately 8 million Toyota vehicles have been recalled worldwide.

When fatal or serious injuries occur in a New York car accident, New York personal injury lawyers, like the lawyers at the Perecman Firm, investigate the incident and its circumstances to determine the cause. When a defect in the design or manufacture of a vehicle is found to be at fault, a New York personal injury lawyer can help secure maximum compensation for a victim or his or her family.

In one near tragic occurrence in New York, a Queens dad had to crash his runaway RAV4 Toyota into a tree to get the vehicle to stop. He, his wife and their daughter suffered numerous injuries.

In another reported accident, an upstate New York mom had to smash her Toyota Camry into the back of another vehicle to get her car to decelerate. .

In New York, personal injury lawyers are reviewing allegations that Toyota fraudulently concealed safety hazards and breached its own contract and warranties.

"If you have been in an accident involving any of the recalled Toyota vehicles, it is in your best interest to contact an experienced New York personal injury lawyer. In New York, a personal injury lawyer with experience can evaluate your individual case and advise you on how best to proceed," added Perecman.
