Toyota Recalls Raise Awareness of Vehicle Safety Issues, Risks of Accidents from Driving Defective Automobiles

Massive recalls, prompted by problems ranging from unintended acceleration to software problems in antilock braking system, affects millions of drivers

New York, NY (Lexis Nexis) February 25, 2010 -- The widely publicized Toyota recalls have raised widespread consumer awareness of vehicle safety considerations and led to a significant increase in inquiries from individuals who are concerned about the risks of driving defective automobiles, according to New York auto accident attorneys, Cellino & Barnes.

In November 2009, Toyota's problems began when the company recalled 4.2 million vehicles due to a design flaw that could cause the gas pedal to become trapped under the floor mat. Toyota continued to receive pressure and reports of unintended acceleration and stuck pedals even in cases where the floor mats had been removed.

Earlier this month, Toyota recalled more than 3 million vehicles due to faulty accelerator pedals that can get stuck, causing vehicles to speed up unintentionally, in a move that affected seven different vehicle models. Subsequently, Toyota recalled more than 400,000 Prius and other hybrid cars to replace software that controls the antilock braking system.

"The news coverage regarding Toyota's problems has led to a surge in inquiries from individuals who are understandably concerned about the safety of their vehicles and the risks of auto accidents from driving defective automobiles," said Stephen Barnes, partner in the law firm of Cellino & Barnes.

According to Barnes, about a dozen class action lawsuits and several wrongful death lawsuits have already been filed against Toyota. The cases claim that Toyota knew or should have known about the defective gas pedal problems, yet they sold these vehicles to the public regardless.

"The aftermath of a car accident can be confusing and overwhelming," said Ross Cellino, the other partner of the firm. "If you have been in a car accident, it's important to hire attorneys who have knowledge and experience in handling car accident cases. Our car accident attorneys have helped thousands of clients across New York and will help you through these difficult times."
