Toyota Recall Due to Malfunctioning Airbags

By Orlando Personal Injury Attorney on February 1, 2018

A few days ago, Toyota issued a recall that affects around 645,000 of their vehicles throughout numerous models and years. Although this comes on the heels of a recently expanded recall by the Takata company (maker of many Toyota airbags), the most recent recall from Toyota does not seem to relate to the ongoing Takata scandal and is instead an entirely different hazard that Toyota owners should stay aware of.

Toyota Pays More Than $1 Billion to Settle Lawsuits

By Orlando Personal Injury Attorney on December 31, 2012

Late December brought important news for people who filed claims against Toyota Motor Corp. for accidents, injuries and deaths in connection with sudden, unintended acceleration in Toyota vehicles. Earlier this month, we blogged about a $17.35 million fine filed against Toyota by the National Highway Traffic and Safety Administration for reacting slowly to floor mat problems in some Lexus vehicles. That fine has now been dwarfed by a record $1 billion payout by Toyota to settle hundreds of lawsuits filed by owners who said that the value of their Toyota vehicles plummeted after the automaker issued recalls to correct unintended acceleration problems. The settlement came as a surprise to James O. Cunningham and other Orlando Toyota recall accident attorneys, as it is unprecedented in its size. It is the largest in U.S. history that involves product liability in automobiles.

Study of Toyota Recalls Finds Numerous Flaws at Automaker

By Orlando Personal Injury Attorney on May 21, 2011

A panel of analysts assembled by Toyota Motor Corporation last year to identify problems that led to the recall of more than 14 million Toyota vehicles found several flaws in the way the company addresses consumer complaints. Former U.S. Transportation Secretary Rodney E. Slater was one of seven members on the panel, and he headed the investigation that presented its findings recently. Many of the flaws the panel discovered stemmed from Toyota’s tendency to dismiss consumer complaints and a lack of clear procedure for handling safety problems. Regular readers of this blog will remember that Toyota’s safety problems involving floor mats, sticking accelerators and sudden, unintended acceleration have led to lots of auto accidents here in the U.S. and around the world that have killed and injured hundreds of people.
