Rheingold Giuffra Ruffo & Plotkin LLP, handles a wide range of product liability cases, including those involving defective automobiles and components. In the past few months, Toyota has recalled over 5 million vehicles because of defects that cause the cars to accelerate out of control. Hundreds of people have reported experiencing this problem and dozens of have been killed and injured as a result of it. Initially, Toyota blamed the problem on floor mat interference with the accelerator pedal while the second recall blames worn out or sticky accelerator pedals. Many experts believe that the real defect lies in the electronic throttle control assembly that is common to many Toyota vehicles (both within and outside of the recalled vehicles). When a vehicle suddenly accelerates, the results can be tragic, including serious injuries and wrongful death.
