Toyota trial regarding sudden acceleration to begin

A federal court trial that will determine if automaker Toyota Motor Corp. is liable for the unintended abrupt acceleration that killed a woman in 2009 began on Monday, July 22.

The Uno trial, which started with jury selection on the 22nd, will also determine if other motorists will be able to hold Toyota liable for sudden acceleration in their vehicles. This trial in particular will focus on whether Toyota is responsible for Noriko Uno’s death in 2009 after her Toyota Camry unexpectedly sped up and crashed into a telephone pole and a tree.

Toyota has stood firm, claiming there was no defect in Uno’s car and instead has pointed to gas pedal trapped by floor mats and driver error as the cause of such accidents.

Sustaining injuries or losing a loved one in an accident caused by a defective vehicle can be extremely devastating. When facing such a situation or loss, talk with the legal team at Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. by calling 800-242-2874.
